V for Vendetta



A vivid display of vibrant acting, complete with vicarious dialogs and vicious fight scenes was but a vestige of this movie. The movie filled with vastitudes of vigor, vitality and vivacity, V was a visual treat with voluminous thrills, vivid characterization and vehement out-bust of emotions.

V for Vendetta is a comic book series written by Alan Moore and illustrated mostly by David Lloyd, set in a dystopian future United Kingdom. A mysterious anarchist named V works to destroy the fascist government and profoundly affects the people he encounters.

The movie “V for Vendetta” is a beautiful illustration of the same. Though I have not read the book or the comics, the movie sticks to the original and does not take what is hailed as “Artistic-Liberty” to plagiarize the script to the viewer’s tastes.

The first few minutes of the movie reminded me vaguely of the Shakespearian plays that I learned in high-school. The dialog format, delivery and content, filled me with nostalgia of those days with Hamlet and Merchant of Venice. It’s like an amalgam of Shakespearian tragedies and George Orwell’s “1984”. Quite amazingly entertaining…

V has a reference to Guy Fawkes (April 13, 1570–31st January, 1606), an English soldier and a member of a group of Roman Catholic conspirators who attempted to carry out the so-called Gunpowder Plot in 1605. The plot was an attempt to assassinate King James I of England (James VI of Scotland) and the members of both houses of the Parliament of England. To do this, Westminster Palace was to be blown up during the formal opening session of the 1605 Parliament, in which the king would address a joint assembly of both the House of Lords and the House of Commons. But he was caught. Guy Fawkes is remembered with Guy Fawkes Night on November 5 (the Roman letter equivalent of which is V). It was said that Fawkes was "the only man to ever enter parliament with honorable intentions."

Similarly V seeks vengeance to bring the tyrannical government to its knees. He says that he is, “vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous”

It took me a long search to find the actor beneath the mask. I was quite surprised that it was Hugo Weaving, too well known for his amazing protrayal of "Agent Smith" in the Matrix Trilogy and the wisest of all Eldars, "Elrond" in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, chosen to be the man behind the mask... The V

A Multifaceted Personality - Hugo Weaving

The Vox populi has given their verdict… “An amazing watch, if you do not vest to the vanity variety”


The V dialog...
(I had to search a lot for this... thanks again to youtube for the video)

I first heard of Alan Moore, when i was a child, and i came across this very different storyline for the Swampthing Series, written by him. But I didn't know he was behind V for Vendetta. Heard it's a shitty movie!

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
