Like Django Unchained and Lincoln, but with better politics.
“The Bathtub has more holidays than the whole rest of the world.”
3. Holy Motors
“Weird, weird. He’s so weird.”
“America’s not a country, it’s a business. Now fucking pay me.”
Actually not the most excruciating film called “Love” directed by an Austrian this year.
Made Amour look like a rom-com.
“If you loved me, you’d turn off the lights.”
8. The Master
“The only way to defend ourselves is to attack.”
9. Hunger Games
“Commencing at sunrise, there will be a feast tomorrow at the Cornucopia.”
“This is a protest against the future. They want to hold off the future.”
