People watch V for Vendetta for different reasons. Natalie Portman with her new hairdo is definitely one. The Wachowskis are returning at what they are doing best (after a dismal Matrix 2 and 3). The deeper and more complex political tyranny involved. Or simply for its dramatic thriller and violence.

Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, V For Vendetta tells the story of a young working-class woman named Evey who is rescued from a life-and-death situation by a masked man known only as "V." People are poisoned by their government into lonely individuals following the flow of life. They have no autonomy whatsoever. Hmm...

If there is only one movie to watch this month, I strongly recommend V for Vendetta. It's complex, highly entertaining, thrilling, mind boggling and violent! Watching it in the light of the coming elections does leave one becoming cynical, I hope.

Matrix has been one of my favourite movie of all time. I think the Wachowskis have done it again – though the ending scene of several masked Vs reminded me of the Agent Smith clones.

Look out for the powerful scene in the middle featuring the lesbian actress. Something's missing though. Is it because it is rated N-16? Wait for the M18 one perhaps. Yes, uncut.

V for Vendetta - Visually vivacious and violent, very very vood
