V for Vendetta, my review

T, you wanted to know how this movie was? I have but two words for you...

Fecking. BRILLIANT.

Now taking my blown-away ass to bed, cuz dammit, I have to work in the morning!!! I will dream of blood-red roses and of that face... oh, and of Keira Knightly too, she's HAWT!!!

I rented it today and thusly watched it for the third time. I concur with your review - though "brilliant" barely holds a torch to its genius.

When one considers current world events, the slow death of Western democracy and the upswing in the influence of the Christian fundamentalism (both Stateside and here in Canada), 'tis scary.

Further fodder for thought - the chancellor was not only a Christian fundamentalist, but elected as a member of the Conservative party.

Given the large fundamentalist representation in the party, and the fact that key members of our military are rabid fundamentalists, 'tis scarier.

Time to get to work on getting my Irish passport again before it becomes a crime to be different here in Canada, as it did in the movie's Britain.

I fear it is only a matter of time.

Cheers,

Ted
