V for vendetta and 1984
Transcript of V for vendetta and 1984
Does the human spirit exist?
Is power good? So many people ask this question but there are few who know the "correct" response Those in a dystopia, or imperfect society, do not care about the answers to these questions V is an almost insane man. He has a lot of street smart, as well as being capable of many alliterations of words with "v", hence his name. His name also stands for the vengeance that he gives to those who have wronged him. No one knows of V's true appearance under his mask and long clothes, other than he is severely burnt and his hair...
He manipulates the media by coming into the building and he instills fear into the Chancellor and the party by threatening their control. This makes the government view him as a menace, but the people view him as a leader or a martyr. His limitation is he is solely focused on revenge until Evey, but while he realizes this, he has a duty to overthrow the "evil" of the party. Evey Hammond is a woman who has lived on the run from the government. She is independent, but fears losing her life or being harmed. When she meets V, this changes. He tortures her until her fear is dissolved. "Those without fear are truly dangerous." Evey becomes a threat to the Party, which is a complete 180 from her previous character. She was only driven for herself, but V forced her to strive for a "greater good". Winston Smith is a minutely intellectual character. He realizes the party is corrupt but he is too afraid to do anything.
Julia likes to think of herself as a rebel, but she is actually acquiescent and never does anything to stop the party.
O'Brian is a power-hungry, deceitful person of high class who plays Winston like a cat plays a mouse. He seeks knowledge and power through knowledge. Chancellor Sutler and Big Brother are both greedy. They are strict through the use of thought police, telescreens, and fingermen; Both Chancellor and BB are cruel. If you oppose them, you are tortured and killed. They fear the loss of power and will do anything to keep it. The Party in both 1984 and V for Vendetta were anonymous. You never knew who was in the Party, but the viewer does know that they are the elite. They work together to control what is said and done.
