V for Vendetta (2005)
This movie is the most beautiful thing we have ever been given!
I almost did not see this movie. I hated the Matrix films and as this movie was being advertised "From the makers of the Matrix trilogy" I avoided seeing it. I think the makers truly believed they were creating a piece that would appeal to a predominately male audience (the way they kept advertising Natalie Portman as the star), Matrix lovers and Sci Fi geeks and thus advertised it as such. That, along with the R rating stopped a lot of people from seeing this movie. I cannot remember what finally made me see it but I was fully prepared to hate it when I did. What can I say, I have never been so affected by a movie - a character - in all my life. Hugo Weaving is a genius. I did not know it was he playing V, till the end of the movie. I was simply blown away by his performance. Every aspect of this movie is spellbinding - the set, the music, the costumes, the artwork, the choreography, the direction, the mask. I have never seen anything as beautiful as that mask. Even the horribly violent get mesmerisingly beautiful fight scene at the end left me speechless and my heart thumping. Not to mention the tragic - but you would not have it any other way - ending! Magnificent! I ended up seeing this movie 7 times at the cinema, each time seeing something more, a new spark, a new symbolism that I had not noticed before. This movie leaves you wanting more (a sequel a prequel?) but knowing sadly, that there could never be more, because the heart and soul of this movie - codename V is gone forever. To bring him back somehow would destroy all he worked for, the very symbols he represented. Viva la revolution!
