V for Vendetta film
Vfor Vendetta film
Thefilm “V for Vendetta incorporates philosophical theories in itsstructure as discussed in this paper. The first question requires theexplanation of the character who is enlightened and transformed inthe film. The degree of being right or wrong of an action depends noton its consequences, but it depends on whether a duty is fulfilled.This is according to Kant’s theory (Kant,Immanuel, and Edward Franklin Buchner “pp. 23-30”).This theory is an example of a deontological theory of morality.Playing as Valerie Page in the dystopian political thriller V forVendetta, Natasha Wightman plays as a lesbian who gets animprisonment sentence for her sexuality status. The script writerportrays her as a child. The totalitarian regime is the oneresponsible for her imprisonment due to her imprisonment somethingwhich leads to her transformation, and she gets enlightened for thebetter (Bulloch431).
Thisactress stated that during her prison moments, she was able torealize her integrity a, trait which ,cannot be taken from her. During the incarceration, she almost faced death and then came backto life through which she was able to find herself. The consequencesof this actor being imprisonment could have brought severerepercussions to the actress, but an obligation was fulfilled as shewas able to achieve her maturity sense and consider her way ofliving. Her head was shaved for the responsibility she held, and thisdecision helped portray the prejudice that many lesbians face(Bulloch433).
Thepolice were called in the course of this period, as Wightman thoughtthat this actress was a man who had tried to gain forcible entry intoher house. According to Kant’s deontological theory of morality(Kant,Immanuel, and Edward Franklin Buchner “pp. 23-30”),one could say that the action of the star being imprisoned was notright, but someone else could say that it was the best thing thatcould have been done for her. The consequences of Valerie trying tobreak into a house were severe as she was arrested by the police andimprisoned (Bulloch432).
Thesecond question requires an illustration of the character whoportrays the Kant’s private and public use of reason. According tothe theory (Kant,Immanuel, and Edward Franklin Buchner “pp. 23-30”),there is a belief that anybody as a scholar can be able to make apublic right to the literate world. A person may make a particularreason depending on the public or political post he or she holds insociety entrusted to him or her. Eric Finch portrays this theoryaccording to the way in which he operates in his position as aseasoned and talented detective, and he is displayed as among theprominent persons in the institution responsible for theinvestigation of terrorism and bigger crimes committed in public(Bulloch432).
Unlikea big number of his colleagues, Finch is not happy with thedictatorship regime of the leader, and he reasonably channels histhoughts towards him. We can be able to have a view of his bravery byhis ability to portray his courage and bravery in disapproving thedictator and his competence to hold a public post is seen. The leaderrealizes that there is no way he can have Finch executed as he hasbeen loyal in his service to the public all those years he had beenin open position working in the Nose. Finch becomes obsessed with thedesire to pin down V. The leader can be able to realize that Eric isnot motivated by monetary factors and he is honest in his service. Though he at the end succeeds to kill V, he is mentally transformedand discovers that V was right in his opposition to the Norse fireregime. He vows to himself that he will never again be able to acceptorders from any tyrant again, but he would be his own master (Bulloch432).
Thereis danger inherent in democracy according to Socrates’s speech theApology.Socratesportrays Athens as a city which is politically democratic. In thistown, the many are the dominant holders of power. Since people do notlike been evaluated in questions, they will in most cases takeactions against those who provoke them with arguments. It is a dangerthat is imminent to the people who fight for justice as they would bekilled. Democracy gives power to the assembly making it a corruptpolitical regime as when a government is given high power there is agreat injustice that would be practiced in their offices. There ismuch freedom given to the Norsefire regime as the leaders forbidpeople from reading what they want and even going to the extent ofsending people to prison due to the orientation of their sexuality ortheir skin color (Bulloch433).
Theleadership of the dictator allows those in public offices to havefreedom to do what one wants. There is much danger that happens here,as innocent individuals are made to suffer. Finch manages to kill Valthough V knew about the tyrannical operation of the Norse fireregime. Being a reasonable person, he is able to realize this anddecides never to be ordered by any brutal personality (Bulloch434).
Inthe film, we see government institutions being shut down for a periodof three days just because V had the power to do what he wanted andriots break out among the people as they are also free to have theirfreedom concerning any matter. There are consequences as innocentpeople suffer in the process.
