V for Vendetta is, uh, an interesting movie about totalitarianism and such by the guys that made the Matrix. It's far better than the Matrix though.

Brixton is mentioned in the movie too. :)

Ya, apparently they watered down the anarchist message too much for his taste and turned it into a more shallow liberal vs. neocon thing.

I'd be interested in reading his version.

Like always wikipedia has a bunch of good info on it:
