Results of recent media testing


(Apologies to jwz.)

I’ll refrain from including
spoilers
for V for Vendetta below, unlike a certain magazine whose
ending-revealing commentary
I had the misfortune to read before seeing the film.



Some random impressions:




  • The Bill O’Reilly/Rush Limbaugh character is too articulate. Then


again, he’s British. (The Wikipedia article, which includes what is
nearly a scene-by-scene commentary, notes that he may be a jab at
Christopher Hitchens.)




  • London is too clean — it’s simply not squalid enough to be a


convincing dystopia.
