Enn af V for Vendetta

Bravely, the film does not back- pedal on the trickiest element of the book to pull off on screen: V, like Mirrormask, demands that its hero’s face be hidden throughout by a mask, which is no small challenge for the actor (the first left, to be replaced by Hugo Weaving). Nor, apparently, does it downplay the political dimension to which 9/11 and 7/7 have given new relevance: V is an avenging anarchist out to liberate the people from right-wing rule by dressing as Guy Fawkes and blowing up government buildings. And this, you understand, is the hero. Arguably, if the Bill outlawing the glorification of terrorism ever did get through Parliamant, the film might find itself banned. "The film certainly can be seen as an attack on Bush," agrees Lloyd. "There’s a strong message in there."

Moore is less charitable. "Basically, it’s the work of two thwarted and impotent liberals who want to say how annoyed they are with their President, but want to do so in a safe way — by setting it in a fantasy Great Britain."

Ah, Moore. Gamli refur.

Þarna er líka minnst á The Fountain, myndasöguna, sem kom út í nóvember síðastliðnum. Ég er ekki viss en mig minnir að ég hafi heyrt um þetta áður.. Varst þú að tala um þetta, Davíð?
Væri gaman að tékka á henni.. en myndin á jú líka að vera á leiðinni.
