Hey guys, Jana here,

Director and documentary guru Alex Gibney is one name some may heard of when it comes to the specialized world of doc filmmaking and for good reason. In 2008, he won the Academy Award for Best Documentary with ‘Taxi to the Dark Side‘ and in 2006 he was nominated in the same category for ‘Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room’.

This time he’s making his debut at the Berlin Film Festival and competing for the Golden Bear with ‘Zero Days‘. ¬†Gibney has done what he’s always done, taking an unsettling topic and blowing it up with scrupulous details abounding. The topic at hand this time is cyber warfare and the effects used as demonstration provide a chilling effect on the viewer.

Magnolia and Showtime have purchased the project, so it will surely be released state-side soon in a variety of formats including VOD. The preview drops us into a nightmare rife with re-enactments, graphics and using the power of the human voice to describe ways hackers are being employed by governments to create viruses that can wipe out every gain we’ve achieved.

Movie Quotes

V:
[Evey pulls out her mace] I can assure you I mean you no harm.
Evey Hammond:
Who are you?
V:
Who? Who is but the form following the function of what and what I am is a man in a mask.
Evey Hammond:
Well I can see that.
V:
Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.
Evey Hammond:
Oh. Right.
V:
But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace sobriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona.
V:
Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.
[carves V into poster on wall]
V:
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
[giggles]
V:
Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
Evey Hammond:
Are you like a crazy person?
V:
I am quite sure they will say so. But to whom, might I ask, am I speaking with?
Evey Hammond:
I'm Evey.
V:
Evey? E-V. Of course you are.
Evey Hammond:
What does that mean?
V:
It means that I, like God, do not play with dice and I don't believe in coincidences.
