Actually I like that the movie kind of lightened on the "anarchy verses fascism" thing. In the comic novel "V" is a complete insane anarchist... I found his character in the movie far more balanced and compelling.

All I'm sure of, is that you are B'nai Yisra'El... As for legal citizenship I thought Canada but I could be wrong. Why should I above all people know?

"Those words, "fascism" and "anarchy," occur nowhere in the film. It's been turned into a Bush-era parable by people too timid to set a political satire in their own country. In my original story there had been a limited nuclear war, which had isolated Britain, caused a lot of chaos and a collapse of government, and a fascist totalitarian dictatorship had sprung up. Now, in the film, you've got a sinister group of right-wing figures — not fascists, but you know that they're bad guys — and what they have done is manufactured a bio-terror weapon in secret, so that they can fake a massive terrorist incident to get everybody on their side, so that they can pursue their right-wing agenda. It's a thwarted and frustrated and perhaps largely impotent American liberal fantasy of someone with American liberal values [standing up] against a state run by neo-conservatives — which is not what "V for Vendetta" was about."

They ran a fascist, totalitarian Orwellian government in the movie, not a "government run by neo-conservatives”. You can argue that “V” was diluted from the original anarchist, but the fictional government not so much.
