V for Vendetta! (SPOILERS)

Alright.

This movie is actually much larger than I ever would have expected. It's already on the top 250 at IMDB, but that might pan out eventually. Personally, I think it deserves to be up there.

But the point of this thread isn't to ask if you liked the movie or not. Instead I figured we could discuss some of the odditys to the movie. Things that no one is supposed to really understand, but can ask about.

First off. Do you think V was white? Do you think he was gay? They never reveal his identity because he's just supposed to be a symbol. Larkhill was supposedly a place where they heaped up non-whites and gays and minorities to test the disease and make a cure. I figure V to be white, mainly because the movie suggests that, so I figure he's probably homosexual.

I actually heard some ideas where people thought V was Veronica. But I don't think that's true.

Anyone actually read the graphic novel?

I'll do it the next time you're on AIM.

I don't think he was gay. And I do think he was white. But that's probably because I'm white. I thought his obvious feelings for natalie portman kinda proved that he was not gay...idk....great movie though.

Well it was supposed to be a father-figure kind of love. I guess the love affair thing was tacked on for the movie.

He seemed white in the movie. But then why would he have been in the medical testing?
I dunno, people have been debating that since it was printed.

From what I've read of the comic, it's a lot more detailed and a lot different than the movie. We'll see how it turns out.

I've also heard people think that V was a hermaphrodite.

Also V was definately white. A white OLD dude at that.

FOr me the biggest problem is V starts out as an anarchist in the beginning of the movie and then by the end becomes some kind of freedom fighter. Completely changing the anarchist vs fascist point of the story. That is why I have difficulty buying parts of the movie. The story was changed to the point that it doesn't quit fit right.

Despite its flaws V For Vendetta was enjoyable, much better than many of the movies that have been released lately.
