Memorable Monologue: Closer


[On an art exhibit]

"It's a lie. It's a bunch of sad strangers photographed beautifully, and... all the glittering assholes who appreciate art say it's beautiful 'cause that's what they wanna see. But the people in the photos are sad, and alone... But the pictures make the world seem beautiful, so... the exhibition is reassuring which makes it a lie, and everyone loves a big fat lie."

~ Natalie Portman as Alice in Closer (2004)

Fantastic scene from a fantastic movie...one of my films of the decade.

On another note, how on earth Jackie Brown didn't win your Tarantino poll mystifies me.
