If I was wittier or more creative, this post would have every paragraph start with a V word. Alas, alack, I'm not Very creative. In fact, the only V word I managed to get into this intro is "Very". I take that back, I managed to get two in. The second is a word that's been at the tip of my tongue all week: Verisimilitude.
Verisimilitude is a noun used to suggest the appearance of being real. For example, there's a reasonable amount of Verisimilitude expected in an autobiography of Abraham Lincoln. Suggesting that he was a Vampire hunter isn't terrible, so long as the suspension of disbelief hasn't been broken.
Vampires, lore wise, have been around for hundreds of years. Society has sort of accepted the existence of the undead bloodsuckers in our culture because there's a certain believability in the fear of an outside monster infiltrating our homes and our families.
V for Vendetta doesn't have Vampires, of course, but it does depict a government that sucks the life out of its people.
Violence... there's also a lot of Violence.
Vicariously, we, the viewer, live through the protagonists in the film and potentially gain a deeper understanding of what a totalitarian state looks like.
Visually, the film stands up. The set design and some of the larger views of the city, particularly with the mass of people in Guy Fawkes masks, are striking.
"Verily," you might say.
Virtually all of these paragraphs started with V; they might have worked, though I don't think they did (though you might Vehemently disagree). Just make sure you go easy on me, I'm feeling kind of Vulnerable right now.
Anyway, good movie... lots of V's
