V for Vendetta

V for Vendetta is one of my favorite movies, so I'm glad we got to watch it again. Last year I was actually in London for Guy Fawkes day, so watching this again was a reminder of that fun holiday. I'm glad I didn't get blown up on my tube ride home after the fireworks! Natalie Portman gives one of her most convincing performances in this film, and her struggle to cope with a madman is so believable. There are many themes in this film, and they include fear, love, anger, and contempt. London is also a wonderful place to film, and I think that the setting tied this movie together. Especially for us Americans, watching films set in different places is eye opening as well as entertaining.

  1. The overarching themes of this film are the themes I respect most within it. Not only is it a beautiful work, but it addresses political uncertainties that Americans as well as Europeans experience. The near-futuristic setting with the closeness of the present allows viewers to truly ponder the types and powers of government.
