1. 'The Grand Budapest Hotel', Wes Anderson (2014)

    Part 1: Mr. Gustave

    And so my life began, junior lobby boy in training under the strict command of M. Gustave H. Many of the hotel’s most valued and distinguished guests came for him. I became his pupil and he was to be my counselor and guardian. This is also when I met Agatha.

    'The Grand Budapest Hotel', Wes Anderson (2014)

    Part 0: First and Last Scenes

    There are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity… He was one of them. What more is there to say?

  3. 'Hellion', Kat Candler (2014)

    You know I can’t be letting a 10-year-old boy go unsupervised like you’ve been doing. And a 13-year-old on probation is not our idea of a good caretaker.


  4. 'In Bruges', Martin McDonagh (2008)

    After I killed them, I dropped the gun in the Thames, washed the residue off me hands in the bathroom of a Burger King, and walked home to await instructions. Shortly thereafter the instructions came through. “Get the fuck out of London, youse dumb fucks. Get to Bruges.” I didn’t even know where Bruges fucking was.

    It’s in Belgium.


  5. 'Atonement', Joe Wright (2007)

    Never trust a sailor on dry land.


  6. 'Hide Your Smiling Faces', Daniel Patrick Carbone (2013)


  7. 'Barton Fink', Joel Coen and Ethan Coen (1991)

    I gotta tell you, the life of the mind… There’s no roadmap for that territory… And exploring it can be painful.


  8. 'Scener Ur Ett Äktenskap' (Scenes from a Marriage), Ingmar Bergman (1973)

    We’re emotional illiterates. We’ve been taught about anatomy and farming methods in Africa. We’ve learned mathematical formulas by heart. But we haven’t been taught a thing about our souls. We’re tremendously ignorant about what makes people tick.


  9. 'Cutie and the Boxer', Zachary Heinzerling (2013)

    Life is wonderful. Life should be positive. When it’s blown to pieces, that’s when it becomes art. Art is messy and dirty when it pours out of you. The New York Times once said “Shinohara is amazing.” Listen… Brother… Why do I… It makes me cry. I believe in my career goddamn it. Why do I have to? I want to cry. I’ve got nothing. Listen to me! This is so hard… And it’s so fantastic… Now I’ve got nothing. You see… We are the ones suffering the most from art…
