Which movies should be shown together? by Mihir Parekh
Answer by Mihir Parekh:
First V for vendetta followed by Dark Knight.
Both films have agents of chaos in lime light. Both governments have failed and corrupted beyond repair. Life is hell in both States.
But in V agent of anarchy is hero. You see anarchy as a required end. His means justify the ends and many are killed to get what he wants. He is smart and philosophical. You root that he gets what he wants.
Now, joker in dark Knight is also going for anarchy (debatable he has any ends in mind). But he antagonizes people for that. He too kills many. Is smart and philosophical. But he is villain in film. We never empathise with him. May be even Batman knows that even he can't save Gotham with his methods, but we choose hope.
How perspectives change our views is beautifully portrayed by watching this films back to back.
