Movie Quote of the Day – Across The Universe, 2007 (dir. Julie Taymor)

Max’s Father: Goddammit, Max! Get serious, for once! What are you going to DO with your life?
Max: Why is it always what will I do? “What will he do”, “What will he do,” “Oh, my god what will he do”, Do, do, do, do, do. Why isn’t the issue here who I am?
Uncle Teddy: Because, Maxwell, what you do defines who you are.
Max: No, Uncle Teddy. Who you are defines what you do. Right Jude?
Jude: Well, surely it’s not what you do, but the, uh… the way that you do it.

  1. This movie is far too underrated.
    For what it’s worth, my favorite number is a toss-up between “Let It Be” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”

    • I love this film so much. People give it shit, but basically it does what Glee does, only classier and with an actual story to fit with the songs. And a story that beautifully depicts a turbulent time in American history.

      My favorite numbers are either “I’ve Just Seen A Face” or “Hey Jude” I think.
