That’s quite a story; quite a world. I only vaguely remember the film, but I still hear Hugo Weaving’s voice as V and Natalie Portman as Evey. The bones of what I remember match though. A story of a world gone well over the edge and a man determined to bring it back—but at what cost?
A fascinating read and worth the time. I need to watch the movie now.
Moments that particularly stood out to me (spoilers):
Book 1: Europe After the Reign
All righty then.
That’s not at all what I remember of the film. Parlament and fireworks, yes. V, mostly. Was Portman a prostitute?
Oh my. Alternate history… or propaganda?
Room V. That I remember!
Oh that’s sneaky.
No miraculous Transubstantiation for him…
The Milgram Experiment. Oy.
Book 2: The Vicious Cabaret
That’s certainly an interesting style. Landscape too.
This I remember!
Book 3: The Land of Do-As-You-Please
An awful lot to say with no words.
