Alan Moore on V For Vendetta

This is an interesting talk on V For Vendetta by legendary comic writer Alan Moore, he's sitting down with the BBC discussing his works in a series of videos. In this part, Moore breaks down some of the history to on his (and artist David Lloyd's) work V For Vendetta to put it in a proper context, especially when it comes to the story's politics. The American film adaptation is notorious amongst fans of the comic series, as well as anarchists, for gutting most of the best bits of dialogue in addition to the very anarchist politics that define V, not the shallow libertarianism of the American film.
