One heck of a good trailer...

Thanks to siderea and others for pointing out the trailer to V For Vendetta. It's worth checking out.

For those not familiar with it, this is an Alan Moore story, my personal favorite graphic novel of all time. It's a fascinating story, about the evils of untrammeled government (and the dangers of the alternative), about true radicalism and about how people can be changed by it, all wrapped up in a yarn that is at turns rousing and bleak.

The Wachowskis (the brothers behind The Matrix) have adapted it to film, and are releasing it on perhaps the most appropriate possible date. I've heard that there are issues with the script, so we'll see how it comes out in the end. But the trailer is encouraging -- aside from the inevitably gratuitous special effects, it captures the spirit of the story extremely well.

Fingers crossed -- this story is even more timely than it was when it was written, and I am hoping it plays out well...
