Conflicting Perspectives: Julius Caesar + V for Vendetta
1 JULIUS CAESAR: Individual responses towards the process of searching for the true and moral leadership thus revealing CP in what is to be considered an “honest” and “noble” leader
1.1 “Caesar shall go forth” because “Danger knows full well that Caesar is more dangerous than he”
1.2 “O noble Caesar! ... We will be revenged!”
1.3 Irony of Brutus’ “honourable” decision to conspire against his “good friend”
1.4 “Et tu, Brute!” drives a chaos of emotions
1.5 “For Brutus is an honourable man” questions the reason for this murder
1.6 “not that [he] loved Caesar less but that [he] loved Rome more” Caesar’s true leadership ambitions were unrevealed
1.7 “Caesar, now be still: I kill'd not thee with half so good a will” reveal mixed opinions
1.8 challenges the values of leadership through the meaning of nobility and honour, which comes to a crux at Caesar’s death
2 JULIUS CAESAR: Vs can influence their p on soc. as well as - instilled familial upbringings of abiding by the republic government
2.1 third person, “Than that poor Brutus with himself at war”
2.2 envisions Caesar metaphorically ascending upon ‘ambitions ladder’ symbolic of his concern with JC'
2.3 Conversely, Brutus holds ‘no personal cause to spurn at him’, personal reluctance
2.4 anchor statement for his future actions; “I slew by my best lover for the good of Rome, I have the same dagger for myself when it shall please my country to need my death” foreshadowing
2.5 ghost of Caesar becomes a spiritual omen
2.6 Even Antony regards Brutus as “a man”, “the noblest Roman of them all”
3 V FOR VENDETTA: Diverging values moral leadership
3.1 surfaces F vs. A with an underlying discussion
3.2 shadowed c-u introducing V - secretive figure; his following l.shot - his wide steady stance presents him as a typical hero
3.3 mysterious saviour that “means [her] no harm” vs. his controversial mocking act -“Old Bailey”
3.4 settled in his contrasting view which “Violence can be used for good… justice”
3.5 morals being enforced on “all the televisions in London” ... fostering a sense of irony to 21th century sensitive topics of “immigrants, Muslims, homosexuals” and “terrorists”
3.6 Government “promised order” and “peace” he “demanded in return your silent, obedient consent” restricting individuality and originality
3.7 dark room - (similar to Caesar), a sense of open-ended mystery about his leadership intentions
4 V FOR VENDETTA:V’s traumatic past, which ignites his raging ambition to overrule the current dictatorship
4.1 labelled a “terrorist” and personal aversion against the government his deep passion for justice - revolutionary freedom fighter
4.2 empowering final scene with a wide, overlooking panning shot of London flooded with people dressed in V’s attire
4.3 magnificent victory is “never to be forgot” - his destructive plan throughout the film challenge the audience’s p
4.4 murders of the government officials, political dissidence and the destruction of parliament
4.5 torturous experience in which Evey (whom he cares for) suffers despite being for her own good
4.6 his intentions (similarly to Brutus) are questionable
4.7 questioned through conflicting arguments to challenge the audience to reconsider their values of typical leaders
