"A verdade é que nenhum dos filmes portugueses de entretenimento interessa a qualquer um dos meus três filhos, que são espectadores normais de cinema. Porque, patetice por patetice preferem os americanos, que são patetas grandes."
- João Botelho (O Cinema da Não-Ilusão: Histórias para o Cinema Português, de João Mário Grilo)
"Listen to me, Steve. Go where? Steve, this is important. Go where? That's right, go where? What happened in your room... Are you listening? What happened in your room is not an isolated incident. It is something that is happening everywhere. So, where you gonna go? Where you gonna run? Where you gonna hide? Nowhere, 'cause there's no one like you left. That's right..." Carol Malone (Meg Tilly)
“The Theatuh, the Theatuh - what book of rules says the Theater exists only within some ugly buildings crowded into one square mile of New York City? Or London, Paris or Vienna? Listen, junior. And learn. Want to know what the Theater is? A flea circus. Also opera. Also rodeos, carnivals, ballets, Indian tribal dances, Punch and Judy, a one-man band - all Theater. Wherever there's magic and make-believe and an audience - there's Theater. Donald Duck, Ibsen, and The Lone Ranger, Sarah Bernhardt, Poodles Hanneford, Lunt and Fontanne, Betty Grable, Rex and Wild, and Eleanora Duse. You don't understand them all, you don't like them all, why should you? The Theater's for everybody - you included, but not exclusively - so don't approve or disapprove. It may not be your Theater, but it's Theater of somebody, somewhere.” Bill Simpson (Gary Merril)
"O crítico é a única fonte independente de informação. O resto é propaganda"
"O Génio é uma Bomba H. Claro que podemos aceitar a permanência do talento sem a confundirmos com uma espécie de infalibilidade artística ou imunidade ao erro, que só podem ser tributos divinos"
"Sometimes an empty page presents more possibilities"
Dick Tracy: No grief for Lips?
Breathless Mahoney: I'm wearing black underwear.
Dick Tracy: You know, it's legal for me to take you down to the station and sweat it out of you under the lights.
Breathless Mahoney: I sweat a lot better in the dark.
"(…) o cinema é a arte do sensível, e não só do visível."
"I'm saying that when the President does it, that means it's *not* illegal!"
"There are over 550 million firearms in worldwide circulation. That's one firearm for every twelve people on the planet. The only question is: How do we arm the other 11?"
Como sabem o Cinematograficamente Falando … resolveu homenagear David Fincher e o seu trabalho durante o mês de Janeiro, com influência da excelente recepção obtida por The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Seguimos agora pelas melhores sete quotes (ou frases) que embelezaram as suas fitas, muitas delas a arriscarem a serem clássicos daqui a uns anos.
“My name is Benjamin Button, and I was born under unusual circumstances”
- Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt) – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
“Ernest Hemingway once wrote, "The world is a fine place and worth fighting for." I agree with the second part.”
- William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) – Se7en
“Become vengeance, David. Become wrath.”
-John Doe (Kevin Spacey) – Se7en
“Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.”
- Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) – Fight Club
“The first rule of fight club is, you do not talk about fight club. The second rule of fight club is, you do not talk about fight club. The third rule of fight club, someone yells stop, goes limp, taps out, the fight is over. The fourth rule: only two guys to a fight. The fifth rule: only one fight at a time fellas. The sixth rule: no shirts, no shoes. The seventh rule: fights will go on as long as they have to. And the eighth and final rule: If this is your first night at fight club, you have to fight.”
- Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) – Fight Club
“Make your life … fun”
- Conrad Van Orton (Sean Penn) – The Game
“People … in the house”
-Meg Altman (Jodie Foster) – Panic Room
