Buy it... if you enjoy dense, intelligent rhythms for symphonic mayhem that often include an overactive percussion section.

Avoid it... if you were lured by Dario Marianelli's Oscar-nominated Pride & Prejudice and are unprepared for his more ambitious and brutal orchestral capabilities.

Marianelli
Marianelli
V for Vendetta: (Dario Marianelli) In a post-9/11 world of extremism, intelligent debates about the boundaries between terrorists and freedom fighters are perhaps more relevant than ever. Writer Alan Moore first published the story of V for Vendetta in his graphic novels of 1982, and is also well known for his movie-inspiring stories for From Hell and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. While his notions of time-altered, gothic depictions of the United Kingdom have intrigued audiences with varying levels of success, Moore has disowned all three films of his work due to unhappiness over the structures of the adaptation deals. The adaptation for V for Vendetta comes from the Wachowski brothers, Andy and Larry, best known for their Matrix work, and the film is directed by newcomer James McTeigue. Posing an alternate reality that could have occurred if Nazi Germany had conquered Britain in World War II and still held the country in totalitarian control in 2020 (while America had lost most of its population to civil war and plague), V for Vendetta has the same graphic novel characteristics as Sin City last year. Perpetually mysterious, a man who wears a mask of Guy Fawkes (the "freedom fighter" who attempted to blow up the British Parliament in 1605 and inspired bonfire celebrations every November 5th since) is the Phantom of the Opera-like villain who strikes revenge with ease, throwing the big brother state into disarray through his own terrorist actions. Brutally dark in its connotations (and destruction of great architecture), V for Vendetta raises dangerous questions about today's societies of the world, and, for the most part, reactions from critics and movie-goers have been cautiously positive.
