V for Vendetta

“God is in the rain.”  (V for Vendetta)

 

Instead of being depressed living in a bad movie i rather watched very good one.  V for Vendeta (2005) is worth to see movie. If i did something else and I’d just have listened the voices, some parts sound like listening major TV networks lately. Terrorists attack, TV propaganda, frighten people, fear, power, prisons, …

Overall, movie is very good and is a good metaphor of our current situation. Some romantic elements doesn’t hurt either. Movie is directed by James McTeigue and written by Andy Wachowski and Larry Wachowski (Matrix).  At the end movie with some quotes, slow motion visual effects and martial (knifes) arts reminds of Matrix. In good sense, of course.  Natalie Portman  as Evey is good as always. Still like the most her play in  Leon (which is amazing movie) and in Goya’s Ghosts she played very well too.

Hugo Weaving – V. (Smith from Matrix) gave soul to V. And i liked play of Finch (Stephen Rea ) . i liked his play in The Crying game  by  Neil Jordan  a lot. The Crying game was my fav movie for a long time. And as in The Crying game he realises and accepts at the end –or as he says in V for Vendetta: “I can see it now. We are part of the same pattern. We are all trapped in. “

Origin of the film:

V for Vendetta  is a ten-issue comic book series written by Alan Moore and illustrated mostly by David Lloyd, set in a dystopian future United Kingdom imagined from the 1980s about the 1990s. A mysterious anarchist named “V” works to destroy the totalitarian government, profoundly affecting the people he encounters.

And this is Moore critics about film:

After reading the script, Moore remarked:

“[The movie] has been “turned into a Bush-era parable by people too timid to set a political satire in their own country… It’s a thwarted and frustrated and largely impotent American liberal fantasy of someone with American liberal values standing up against a state run by neoconservatives—which is not what the comic V for Vendetta was about. It was about fascism, it was about anarchy, it was about England.”

What ever were their dispute, I do like a movie and all its hidden messages and i also do appreciate Moore’s visionary story. Or as it says in the movie:

V: Your own father said that artists use lies to tell the truth. Yes, I created a lie. But because you believed it, you found something true about yourself.

“I don’t do drugs – I am drugs …” (S.Dali)

Must see documentary:  The Dali dimension . How much knowledge was behind his work.  Enjoyed so much. For all who belive that art &science & spirituality are closely connected and inspired by each other. And this picture reminds me a bit of J. Carrey’s erased memories in movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind I watched yesterday.

The Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory (1954)

“THE DALI DIMENSION reveals a completely unknown aspect of one of the most important figures of the 20th Century, and gives new insight to interpret some of Dalí’s masterpieces. …Dalí read scientific literature compulsively, from psychoanalysis to quantum mechanics, and mathematics to genetics. Moreover, he strove all his life to meet relevant scientists: Sigmund Freud, James D. Watson (co-discoverer of the structure of DNA, Nobel prize 1962), Ilya Prigogine (Nobel prize chemistry 1977), Severo Ochoa (Nobel prize physiology 1959).

“There are those who miss being in-depth with the world,”

“There are those who miss being in-depth with the world,” explains Nikolaj Lie Kaas in an interview with Politiken on April 29th 2001, “but for me superficiality means a lot – that’s where I get my drive.” This is an interesting comment from an actor, whose acting always strikes a deeply personal cord. While other actors strive to close in on life, Kaas – who experienced tragic loss at an early age – seems eager to escape the eye of the storm. It is a disturbing quality that etches his characters in the audience’s mind.”

I like this actor…from Idiots to Reconstruction (as one guy on imdb said…movie is Intriguing and Surrealstic) but he plays  … so natural…so real – I love danish dogma…and Von Trier
