Double vinyl LP pressing. First ever vinyl release of this soundtrack to the 2005 motion picture features tracks from Cat Power and Antony and The Johnsons as well as a score by Oscar winner, Dario Marianelli. New jacket artwork features the masked face of V, as does an actual mask inside the package! Known as a Guy Fawkes mask, it has become an iconic image for rebellion, most notably used by the online anarchist group, Anonymous. Thousands of demonstrators wear it in a pivotal scene in the film, and is a common Halloween costume. V for Vendetta is a dystopian political thriller film directed by James McTeigue and written by The Wachowski Brothers, based on the 1988 DC/Vertigo Comics limited series of the same name by Alan Moore and David Lloyd. The film is set in an alternative future where a Nordic supremacist and neo-fascist regime has subjugated the United Kingdom. Hugo Weaving portrays V, an anarchist freedom fighter who attempts to ignite a revolution through elaborate terrorist acts, and Natalie Portman plays Evey, a young, working-class woman caught up in V's mission, while Stephen Rea portrays the detective leading a desperate quest to stop V.
