The 2005 James McTeigue and Wachowski Brothers film V for Vendetta represents a postmodern pastiche, a collection of fragments pasted together from the original Moore and Lloyd graphic novel of the same name, along with numerous allusions to literature, history, cinema, music, art, politics, and medicine. Paralleling the graphic novel, the film simultaneously reflects a range of authorial contributions and influences. This work examines in detail the intersecting texts of V for Vendetta. Subjects include the alternative dimensions of the cinematic narrative, represented in the film's conspicuous placement of the painting The Lady of Shalott in V's home; the film's overt allusions to the AIDS panic of the 1980s; and the ways in which antecedent narratives such as Terry Gilliam's Brazil, Huxley's Brave New World, and Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 represent shadow texts frequently crossing through the overall V for Vendetta narrative.

REMEMBER, REMEMBER THE FIFTH OF NOVEMBER Imagine a Britain stripped of democracy: a world of the not-too-distant future, in which freedom was not lost, but surrendered willingly to a totalitarian regime that rose to power by exploiting the people's worst fears and most damning weaknesses. This is the setting for the parable of Evey, a young woman who is saved from death by a masked man calling himself only V. Beguiling and dangerous, V ignites the fuse of revolution when he urges his fellow citizens to wake up and shed the blanket of tyranny and oppression in which they have permitted themselves to be cloaked. While those in power take steps to neutralize the threat, the police pursue the mystery of V, unaware of the terrible truth that awaits them at the end of the trail. It is Evey, however, who, with V as her enigmatic guide, sets out on the most painful path of all: a journey of deception and self-discovery, deconstruction and re-creation, vindication and vengeance.

Quicklets: Learn more. Read less. V for Vendetta first graced the pages of the British comics anthology series, Warrior, in its flagship issue in 1981. The series continued there until 1985 when Warrior ceased publication. Left in limbo for three years, the series was eventually picked up again in 1988 by DC Comics, one of the world's largest comic book companies, where the story was completed. Artist David Lloyd provides the art for the majority of the series, though artist Tony Weare contributed to a few issues. Originally in black and white, DC reprinted the original pages in watercolors, and continued to do so until the series came to fruition. One of Alan Moore's first attempts to pen a continuing series, V for Vendetta helped put Moore's name on the map. Moore wrote the series as a response to Thatcherism, the form of conservative government in power in the England at the time of the story's creation. The title's popularity lead to Moore becoming more prominent across the pond, which opened the doors for other British comic writers to find new popularity in North America, such as the likes of Grant Morrison and Neil Gaiman, among others, all titans of the industry in their own right. Today, the book enjoys a great deal of popularity and critical praise, especially in the wake of the 2006 film adaptation starring Hugo Weaving and Natalie Portman, which has earned over $132 million. It has also gone on to have a deeper significance, with protesters donning the Guy Fawkes mask popularized by the title character, especially in the Occupy Wall Street movement.
