V for Vendetta has a fairly 'underground-ish' following in UK.
Although I think most of those that have watched it have simply written it off
as an amusing tale about a near future that would never happen as our gov
woyldn't ever get that bad :)
In terms of things such as self-defence, the gov heavily push the idea that you
don't need to defend yourself, just call the police instead - needless to say,
they're only really effective at shooting innocent Brazilians or defending the
people have been taught to be weak, to accept their fate and do as they're told.
