I am, for reasons from the past couple of weeks I'm sure most of you know about, pretty angry and disillusioned with pretty much our entire government right now, but also what appears to be our utter powerlessness to control it. (As someone on the left, you can imagine I feel particularly marooned politically right now) So of course my mind goes straight to Alan Moore & David Lloyd.

So here's V's REAL speech from V FOR VENDETTA.(well, most of it; I applied some cuts but the important stuff is here) Which, unlike the one in the film, doesn't let you off the hook it hangs our leaders upon. Something I feel everyone should read.







All (c)DC Comics. I'd rather say it was (c) Moore & Lloyd, but there you are.

BRIEF PROMO BLURB: If you feel inclined, why not visit Bottomless Studio for some fine comics both print and free, and more besides?

Despite all criticisms of the movie, I will forever hear V's dialogue in Hugo Weaving's voice.

Weaving was a smashing Abberline in the Wolfman though. :)

I got about halfway through that movie before the sheer dullness of it drove me away. I don't think anyone came out of it well.

You should've stayed to LOL at the sight of teddy-bear Anthony Hopkins. So bad.

It's the member image for Dr Strangelove in the assignment section of Peace Walker, the Metal Gear game.

It would have been better as a series anyway. I don't know how in blazes a story of that length could be effectively compressed into a standard-length film in the first place. :/
