dc.description.abstractIn a post-9/11 America where national security is critical for preserving American values, power that the government exercises can be subject to abuse. Because United States citizens place a copious amount of power in their government, government control and oppression are important issues to be addressed. As dystopian films allow filmmakers to comment on social and political stigmas and assess authoritative procedures, this study will compare two post-9/11 films, Equilibrium (2002) and V for Vendetta (2005), to the second Bush Administration’s response to terrorism. As evaluations and critics of establishing control, preventing crime, potential vigilante behavior, and understanding terrorism, governments should be dependable entities to ensure safety, protect rights, and properly serve society.en
