If you prefer, or have trouble with the dialect, you can read it too.
Just four quotes:
Was I bored? No, I wasn’t fuckin’ bored. I’m never bored. That’s the trouble with everybody – you’re all so bored. You’ve had nature explained to you and you’re bored with it, you’ve had the living body explained to you and you’re bored with it, you’ve had the universe explained to you and you’re bored with it, so now you want cheap thrills and, like, plenty of them, and it doesn’t matter how tawdry or vacuous they are as long as it’s new as long as it’s new as long as it flashes and fuckin’ bleeps in forty fuckin’ different colors. So whatever else you can say about me, I’m not fuckin’ bored.
So you think you can make the present palatable by projecting into the future? You’re living in the past, pal. It’s the future that fucks you up, Brian. It’s the maggot in the apple. See, you’re all pissed off with the present, Bri… and there’s nothing wrong with the present. The present’s fine. The present’s perfect. The present’s peachy fucking creamy. The only thing wrong with the present is the bastard doesn’t exist… because the present is the future, and the future is the past… and it’s all the same fucking bag of bones anyway. It’s a constant process of coming into being and passing away… coming into being and passing away. – The future is now. – But the present does exist. We’re in it now. – You were just then, when you said it, but you’re not in it now, you’re not in it now, you’re not in it now. You’re forever being kicked up the ass by the future. You with me? (from 50:40…)
you can’t make an omelet without cracking a few eggs… and humanity is just a cracked egg… and the omelet stinks. (…to 58:57)
I used to be a werewolf, but I’m all right no-OOWWWWWWWWWW!
Holy crap! I’ve been trying to find this on legitimate movie rental sites online for ages and it turns up on frickin YouTube 😀
I saw this when it first came out. It was so dark – a great but very cynical piece of film-making.
Hehe, Norm, I haven’t checked spam on my first blog for ages but now I have and found your comment. So glad! And happy for you that you found this film again. I’ve been watching it again, slowly, and it’s so good that it’s painful. The main character (actor) is just… unbelievable. The landlord from hell is truly from hell. And the nurse. And Sophie! And Magggiee!! Hihih.
