V for Vendetta
From the first monologue to the final firework, a great film. A well-told tale of the awakening of a nation against a totalitarian government prompted by the eponymous V. Top notch graphic novel, too.
Hugo Weaving's V is played with the right amount of theatricality and Natalie Portman's Evey holds your attention when on screen, going from scared and vulnerable to confident and strong. Chief of Police Finch (Stephen Rea) is forced, in the course of his investigations, to change from party man to, if not active participant, then, someone willing to allow the neccessary to happen.
Would have got a slightly higher score if Natalie Portman's accent had held up properly.
Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot...
People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.
