i read an article not to long ago about how V was supposed to be a tranny but the idea was just to wierd so V is a dude. i personally think V is a black guy because no white guy could be that cool. and they most definitley did have everything to clean but then again they changed the story around a lot so i just went along with it.
only one part of the movie really pissed me off and that was the fact that they showed his hands. when i read the book i was always thinking that V was just the mysterious guy that always spoke in a whisper and that he could be a robot or a chicken man or JJ from Good Times, and they showed his damn hands and just said "eh! he's not just an idea!" when...he's just supposed to be an idea
