V for Vendetta


People should not be afraid of their governments, governments should be afraid of their people

Je suis allé avec mes amis voir V for Vendetta. Après le film on a eu une belle discussion. en sortant du café Il faisait beau, c’est le printemps::)! J’adore les moments après le ciné,,, tu es encore dedans et tu essaye de traîner les pieds avant de revenir à la réalité!

X: so how was V?

This was a true eye opener to say the least. Syriana and now V for Vendetta, I don’t know what is going on in Hollywood. Anyways, V is a reflection upon our own society with a political view. In all aspects it was a powerful illustration of what happens and what may come.

V ignites a revolution and takes over the government-controlled media, urging his fellow citizens to rise up against tyranny and oppression. As Evey uncovers the truth about V's mysterious background, she also discovers the truth about herself – and emerges as his unlikely ally in the culmination of his plan to bring freedom and justice back to a society fraught with cruelty and corruption.

The symbolism in this film makes it one of the most intelligent films I have ever seen recently. If you are into movies, go see it preferably with open-minded friends, after the movie go for a drink and have a good intellectual discussion!

Quotes:
“Artists use lies to tell the truth. Politicians use them to cover it up”
“Behind this mask is a man, and behind this man is an idea. And ideas are bulletproof”

Hollywood seems to be changing, probably because of the new independent films wave. Crash was one of the highlights of a new Hollywood era, especially with its best picture Academy award.

All the King's Men is the most recent in that series of political eye openers, but I think it's a bit heavy on average Joe in the US.
