"But it was my integrity that was important. Is that so selfish? It sells for so little, but it's all we have left in this place. It is the very last inch of us, but within that inch we are free."

Valerie in the excellent graphic novel/film 'V for Vendetta'(the part when Evey finds her letter written on bog roll).

V for Vendetta; the best graphic novel by Mr. Moore outside of Watchmen. Shame about the film though - like everything by Alan Moore with enough vision (and money) it would have made a far better TV series. Not enough vision in Hollywood or our own BBC I guess.
Still cant wait for the Watchmen movie though; David Carusso as Rorschach (i'm hoping)!

"David Carusso as Rorschach (i'm hoping)!"

Amazing. Thank you. Even the thought of that has made my day.

I was going to say John Prescott, but it would have had to have been "the very two inches..."

Valerie from V for Vendetta. Great film in spite of the sibling producers best (or should that be worst) effects to justify the cancer of socialism.

Shame about the film though

I actually like the film, I must say. Although there are liberties taken with the original graphic novel, I feel that the tone and the sentiment is carried across very, very well. And I am still impressed that they managed to resist what must have been an almost-overwhelming Hollywood urge to show V's face.

If you want to see a really, really bad adaptation of a very good book, then I suggest that you head for Children Of Men, which removed any interest from the story in favour of a vision entirely of the director's own. It was fucking abysmal.

I love the book and like the film. The film wasn't able to contain most of the philosophical subtleties of the book such as the difference between socially generated order without outside coercion (called anarchy in the book) and social disorder due the removal of outside coercion (called chaos in the book). However at least the film did make sure to include Valerie's letter which is the dramatic high point of both.

I creied when I saw the film.

I only get a pass out occassionally. So to waste it on a film that appeared to me to be utter shit (because I hadn't read the book, it seems) was a mistake.
