V for Vendetta
Andy and Larry Wachowski are two people of great talent in screenwriting. Everyone knows what they did with the Matrix trilogy and they are with their latest moving picture – the V for Vendetta.
I managed to see this movie a couple of days ago and sincerely, it got me. It got me not because of any fancy special effects (though there are a bunch of them, but they are not in the focus of the movie). What got me was the screenplay. The storyline was very well crafted, and in my opinion was a fine combination of Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, Orwell’s 1984 and eventually what the core story of the Matrix trilogy was. Something that made an impression to me was that with having a movie like this, you can turn attention to the masses on problems, such as the ones portrayed in the movie, that are taking place now, in the very present we are living in. And Wachowski did that.
Speaking of the movie and the problems it tackles, I was impressed also by the imagery that is being employed in the movie. Having lots of symbolism and showing that things and actions are not what they usually look they are (particularly with the characted of „V“), it was well done.
Well, enough with reviewing this movie. Go see it.
