V for Vendetta - 8pm sharp - 15 rampart street, London E1
Set in a distopia near future London, the film takes as it's hero a knife wealding murderer with a telent for DIY explosions. With the word terrorist now abused to the point of being completly meaningless, I hesitate to say that the murderous hero of the film should actually be defined as a terrorist at all but certainly the state would define him as such and it's hard to see that anyone could see the film as anything other than a glorrification of his actions, and perhaps even incitement.
Of course the film is a capitalist venture rather than incitement to revolution and Tony Blairs son was involved in the making of the film. Further more, the authorities gave permission for three nights of filming at parliament for the scene in which the great unwashed masses of middle england march on pariament to see it's total distruction at the hands of the masked hero 'V'
With such state approval for this mainstream release by those responsible for the Matrix trilogy, you're unlikely to find yourself getting arrested and black baged for watching it quite yet - regardless of how much we stress that the film is a glorious portrayal of grassroots militant resistance (otherwise known as terrorism).
It's recieved some pretty shitty reviews in the UK corporate media but judge for yourself. I think you'll enjoy it. It's a rare riot of the film sprinkled with anarchist cultural references and imagery borrowed from both orwellian fiction, along with past and present facist states.
Come along and wallow in the glorrious hollywoodesque assassination of brutal cops, sinister celebrities and despotic dictators - not to meantime the grand finally big bang.
Please pass we word.... R for RampART
