Although it had a smidgen of 'Hollywood'/box office about it, I found this film deeply affecting. Several things stand out quite a subtle film in many ways - I'll mention 3 things - 1. Evey's incarceration struggle to find 'truth', 2. the various scenes where 'ordinary' people show that we're not just mass conformists - and we can see through rhetoric, spin etc all the scenes showing their disdain for power mongers - e.g. the frequent 'bollocks' dialogues/scenes and the TV sequence satirising the high chancellor - very anarchistic. Loved this film.
