Final Watchmen Video Journal: Societal Parallels
Although I know that Watchmen is out in theaters today, it would be wrong of me not to finish this series that began a year ago. It's that time of the month and that means we've got the very last Watchmen video journal to share with all of you. MSN presents the very last behind-the-scenes video journal chronicling the development of the film. Today's video journal focuses on the various parallels between the graphic novel and our own society today, and even how, as described by Time magazine book critic Lev Grossman, it reads with the exact same devastating effect today as it did back when it was first published in 1986.
