Jesse: I’m okay with you being a complicated human being! I don’t wanna live a boring life where two people own each other, where two people are institutionalized in a box that others created – because that is a bunch of stifling bullshit!

Mingus: So you’re not dead. I said I wasn’t gonna get mad, but you know what. . .where have you been?!
Marion: I’m sorry I couldn’t call you. My phone ran out of battery and then I was trying to get my soul back and he. . .ate it.
Mingus: Who ate what?
Marion: Vincent Gallo.

Movie Quote of the Day – Before Sunrise, 1995 (dir. Richard Linklater)


Jesse: Um, do you believe in reincarnation?
Céline: Yeah, yeah, it’s interesting.
Jesse: Most people, you know, a lot of people talk about the past lives, and things like that, you know, and even if they don’t believe in it in some specific way, you know, people have some kind of notion of an eternal soul, right?
Céline: Yeah.
Jesse: Okay. Well, this is my thought. Fifty thousand years ago, there are not even a million people on the planet. Ten thousand years ago, there’s like two million people on the planet. Now, there’s between five and six billion people on the planet, right? Now, if we all have our own, like, individual, unique soul, right, where do they all come from? Are modern souls only a fraction of the original souls?. Because if they are, that represents a five thousand-to-one split of each soul in just the last fifty thousand years, which is like a blip in the earth’s time. You know, so, at best, we’re like these tiny fractions of people, you know, walking… I mean, is that why we’re all so scattered? You know, is that why we’re all so specialized?
Céline: Wait a minute, I’m not sure I…I don’t….
Jesse: Hang on, I know, I know, its a totally scattered thought, which is kind of why it makes sense.

Movie Quote of the Day – 2 Days in Paris, 2007 (dir. Julie Delpy)


Marion: It always fascinated me how people go from loving you madly to nothing at all, nothing. It hurts so much. When I feel someone is going to leave me, I have a tendency to break up first before I get to hear the whole thing. Here it is. One more, one less. Another wasted love story. I really love this one. When I think that it’s over, that I’ll never see him again like this… well yes, I’ll bump into him, we’ll meet our new boyfriend and girlfriend, act as if we had never been together, then we’ll slowly think of each other less and less until we forget each other completely. Almost. Always the same for me. Break up, break down. Drunk up, fool around. Meet one guy, then another, fuck around. Forget the one and only. Then after a few months of total emptiness start again to look for true love, desperately look everywhere and after two years of loneliness meet a new love and swear it is the one, until that one is gone as well. There’s a moment in life where you can’t recover any more from another break-up. And even if this person bugs you sixty percent of the time, well you still can’t live without him. And even if he wakes you up every day by sneezing right in your face, well you love his sneezes more than anyone else’s kisses.

Celine: Baby, you are gonna miss that plane.
Jesse: I know.

Zero-Time Academy Award Nominees (part 2) – 20 of the Best Contemporary Actresses Who’ve Never Been Nom’d For Oscar


This list was a lot harder to come up with because most of the actresses I like/consider to be great at their craft are Oscar nominees or winners. I was thinking perhaps the reason there are less underrated actresses is because there are less great roles for actresses and thus less actresses are able to really shine. That being said I did come up with a list of 20 contemporary actresses who have never been nominated that I think have given at least one Oscar-worthy performance, if not filled their career with them.
