[BRIEF NOTE] Guardedly optimistic about V for Vendetta

The upcoming movie version of Alan Moore's V for Vendetta has been a subject of considerable debate and fear among V for Vendetta's fans. Not only has Moore's disavowed the film, but there was a horrific rumour that Britain's totalitarian regime would not be indigenously established but imposed by a Nazi conquest, thereby gutting Moore's whole point that totalitarianism is something we can do for ourselves. I caught the trailer for V for Vendetta Friday night, and it looked good. Much more reassuringly, I read Steve Moore's novelization of the movie, and while there were some divergences the gist of the graphic novel seems to have survived. Let's hope; one successful translation of an Alan Moore graphic novel to film would be nice.
