The Most Important Movie I Have Ever Seen







Having watched the movie 'V For Vendetta' for at least the fifth time, I have come to the conclusion that it is the most important film I have ever seen. Not the most entertaining, not the most enjoyable, not the one with the most artistic expression or stunning visuals, but the most important nevertheless.

For the film itself is an allegory, loaded to the hilt with truth. Truth about government and it's potential tyranny. Truth about the all pervasive fascism that encroaches upon our very existence. The global domination of the Bush administration and its supporters in the Coalition. The support given by the UK government to the "War against terror", when they themselves are the biggest terrorists in the world right now.

The lies spouted by them, and the way in which the media the BBC, Sky, Fox and CNN slavishly replicate them. The manipulation of the "sheeple", lead towards a fascist global domination, one government , one currency, one religion. A microchipped and monitored population, with freedom of expression and the voice of dissent extinguished.

Think very carefully about what you have been told is the truth. Question authority. Look for the truth behind official statements and tabloid lies. Stand tall, walk without fear and speak out against injustice.

If all this seems a bit out of place and out of character with the musings on this particular blog, then all I ask is that you watch the movie (or read the graphic novel if you prefer) and think carefully about it's messages. You might also want to check out the links. Or you may not. It's entirely up to you...

BJ! How marvellous to see you here!
Oh and don't worry about Ghost Squad, I'll be buying it as soon as possible! I'm hoping it'll make up for the frustration I've felt about Umbrella Chronicles...

What a coincidence, I'm about to write a post ony my blog about a movie too!

Anyway, I watched V for Vendetta and I liked it, but as usual I paid more attention to the action scenes than anything else (I just watch movie for entertainment, nothing else). But you can't really ignore such a strong message, can you?

I never liked V for Vendetta. I prefer Equilibrium over that movie. If Natalie Portman actually showed some skin in V for Vendetta, then I would show more interest in that movie.

An excellent movie indeed Father and one of the rare ones that make you want get of your ass and actually do something. Almost felt like bombing a few buildings and a traditionally-bombed statue myself... Then again, I still don't consider it the most important ever done. I did for example find The Wind That Shakes the Barley more ...uhh... touching and intriguing.

Now, if I might suggest you have a look at the graphic novel?

Oh, and yes, a greatly great post!

Oh Bass Fishing is a must dear BJ... I still play the Dreamcast version with my fishing rod peripheral...

Coincidence dear Nebacha? Or cosmic synchronicity..?

LOL! Funnyman! Thank you for you in depth political assessment of the post...

Viva La Revolution dear comrade Gnome! The Wind That Shakes The Barley is very much on my 'to do list...'

OMG FatherK!

I LOVED this movie! And I'm with you all the way, you can't always trust what you're being told by your Government.

This movie actually blew me away the first time I saw it. V was so badass, and Hugo Weaving couldn't have done a better job with the voice...so cool!

V has so many badass lines in this movie, it's really hard to keep up, but he has two in particular towards the end when he goes all Matrix on all those guys.

Ahh good post FatherK! :D

And... uhm... VENCEREMOS!

Politics was never my forte. All that political jargin never made sense to me.

I really liked this film. I got dragged to the cinema to see it and throughly enjoyed myself. I loved the story. You could definitely draw some parallels between the world that existed in the film and the world we live in now.
