Few literary masterworks offer more narrative wonder,
and more frustration to adapt to the silver screen,
than the socioculturally-charged V FOR VENDETTA by
writer Alan Moore and illustrator David Lloyd. Its
mix of Fascist horror, Romantic adventure, and
Science Fiction contemplation, has thrilled readers
of Sequential literature and a world of enthusiasts
for over 20 years.
The questions posed by its pages, particularly the
point at which Terrorism becomes the State, or the
crucible in which Dissent can be compelled to fashion
the tools of Rebellion from the State's own Terror,
still await finer resolutions in the trouble-torn
world of the Here and Now.
As ambivalent as the tones of a William Blake painting,
V FOR VENDETTA strikes as aggressively for the souls
and minds of thinking, caring people who refuse to
settle for any quick emotion, and easy answer.
These are the focused aims superbly met by the wondrous
film from the shapers of THE MATRIX Trilogy. Larry and
Andy Wachowski spent many years forging their prodigious
script, and director James McTeigue brings the momentous
tale to stunning life.
Not a word-for-word adaptation of what is perhaps Alan
Moore's signature work, the film masterfully embraces
Moore's questing spirit; holding true to the original
author's vision while imbuing the film with a life and
character all its own.Read more ›
THICK, glossy pages (the kind you sort of get a high from, from such heavy gloss fumes).
Wonderful artwork from the film!!!! Mock movie posters and the print posters. All very nice.
A must have if you're a fan of the film!
The book is divided into 3 major sections: Shooting Script (pg. 9-168): the complete film script peppered with the director's handwritten annotations. Each page of the script has one to three screenshots at the bottom of it, which correspond to the specific scene being described. The second part is devoted to Art for the Film (pg. 169-251) which displays behind-the-scenes stills with the director's comments for ALL the major scenes in the film. Not only that, you also find storyboard-to-scene comparisons, and various theatrical posters, released and unreleased. The third part is dedicated to the Film Credits (252-255) - a list of all the cast and crew who were involved.
The book I got is the paperback edition. The thickness of the cover is similar to that of a postcard and has a laminated glossy texture and the pages themselves are printed on a 120-gram quality paper that you often find used for high quality brochures, which makes the book special.
In short, V for Vendetta: From Script To Screen is a must-have for fans of the film. If you still can get a copy of it elsewhere, don't miss the chance to grab one. Happy reading.
