Now that’s a fucking film.Excellent piece of work.Adapted from the graphic novel written by Alan Moore who also did The Watchman,which was fucking deadly,and produced by the Wychowski brother sister(ish) combo.Set in an Orwellian British Future V tells the story of a man who fights conformity and rallies the masses to say ‘no’ and question the government.Akin to Gilliams ‘Brazil’ or even ‘1984’ this is a gem. I’ve seen this film once before and had smoked a joint of headshop shit half way through and got confused as fuck when Portman was locked up and tortured.Second viewing sorted that right out.It’s hard to find flaws with this film.My main scruple would be the sound track.I do prefer a score but anyone who’s seen or read Watchmen knows Moore likes to pack in a few songs.After watching the credits i there i can say that Hugo Weaving does the voice of V.I knew it sounded familiar.Portmans accent was poor also.
