V for Vendetta

V for Vendetta (2006)

From the pages of David Lloyd and Alan Moore's groundbreaking graphic novel springs the enigmatic "V" (Hugo Weaving of The Matrix), a masked freedom fighter who's taken up arms against the totalitarian government in a futuristic Britain. Finding an unlikely ally in a young woman named Evey Hammond (Natalie Portman), V urges the citizenry to fight the oppression of the state. John Hurt and Stephen Rea also co-star.
My Two Cents: Far too outlandish to take as commentary on current events, but V's Orwellian dystopia works great as fiction.

NetFlix Rank: Really Liked It
IMDB Rank: 8/10

(note: full review hopefully forthcoming in the next day or two).
