Last night I saw a movie that both surprised and impressed me. It was V for Vendetta, and is based on a graphic novel by Alan Moore and David LLoyd. The main theme relates to personal responsibility and the role of the individual as he or she relates to the public and to the government; while cloaked in a comic book theme, it is not simple nor does it have a simple message. I don't want to get too specific here, but I would say that it will raise questions and challenge personal opinions about individuality and relationships both personal and formal.
The acting was excellent, both with Natalie Portman and with the voice (most especially the voice) of Hugo Weaving, who played the red letter V. The dialogue was one of the things which most impressed me. It was sharp, clever, insightful, and there was a lot of Shakespeare, a bit of Faust, and a few other people who I won't name here.
Bottom line: I recommend it, don't look for simple answers, and I think it would be just as good on DVD.
