Everything I know about life, I learned at the movies
I had already been reviewing films for Empire magazine for four years when, in 1993, I saw Joe
Dantes Matinee. There was a line of dialogue in the film, spoken by John Goodman, that struck me
as being particularly wise. You think grown-ups have it all figured out? he says. Thats just a
hustle, kid. Grown-ups are making it up as they go along, just like you. Wow. I had made it to the age
of 25 and it had never occurred to me that my parents everybodys parents, actually had been
making it up as they went along. Of course they had! Like they say: kids dont come with a manual.
So how had I missed this blindingly obvious truth? And how much more useful wisdom could be
found in the dialogue of films?
Nobody knows anything, William Goldman famously said about Hollywood. But as soon as I
started looking, films seemed to know an awful lot about life, the universe and everything. Life is
like a box of chocolates, Forrest Gump told us; you never know what youre gonna get. It moves
pretty fast, noted Ferris Buellers Day Off, and if you dont stop and look around once in a while,
you could miss it. I thought back to my favourite film of all time, Back to the Future, and found
George McFly telling us that if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything.
Two decades and one Twitter feed (and Facebook page) later, I had accumulated enough movie
wisdom to fill a book the book you now have in your hands (or on your Kindle). I hope you find
some useful nuggets in it. After all, as John Keating (Robin Williams) tells us in Dead Poets Society,
words and ideas can change the world.

gonna get over it. Rob (Ron Livingstone) in Swingers (1996)

Value this time in your life kids, because this is the time in your life when you still have your
choices, and it goes by so quickly. When youre a teenager you think you can do anything, and you do.
Your twenties are a blur. Your thirties, you raise your family, you make a little money and you think to
yourself, What happened to my twenties? Your forties, you grow a little potbelly, you grow another
chin. The music starts to get too loud and one of your old girlfriends from high school becomes a
grandmother. Your fifties, you have a minor surgery. Youll call it a procedure, but its a surgery. Your
sixties, you have a major surgery, the music is still loud but it doesnt matter because you cant hear it
anyway. Seventies, you and the wife retire to Fort Lauderdale, you start eating dinner at two, lunch
around ten, breakfast the night before. And you spend most of your time wandering around malls
looking for the ultimate in soft yogurt and muttering, How come the kids dont call? By your
eighties, youve had a major stroke, and you end up babbling to some Jamaican nurse who your wife
cant stand but who you call Mama. Any questions? Mitch Robbins (Billy Crystal) in City Slickers

The only people who can afford to be artists in New York are rich people. Sophie (Mickey
Sumner) in Frances Ha (2012)

You cant translate poetry into prose. Thats why it is poetry. Mark Schorer (Treat Williams) in
Howl (2010)

No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world. John Keating (Robin
Williams) in Dead Poets Society (1989)

Ive always believed that a portrait captures a person far better than a photograph. It truly takes a
human being to really see a human being. Lawrence Musgrove (Sean Combs) in Monsters Ball

Every story ever told can be broke down into three parts: the beginning, the middle and the twist.

Love (1998)
All music is maths. Rebecca Dunn (Alexa Davies) in A Brilliant Young Mind (2014)

Its not really what you do, its more the intensity by which you do it. I mean, you just find a
conviction of your reality that you believe in and make others believe in it. Youve kind of got to
make it up, really. And then people get convinced. And even, you know, oneself gets convinced. But
theres no sort of hidden track thats there waiting for you. Youve just got to step into it, whatever
that is. And it takes... One does all sorts of things... You do all the things that are not right, but they all
contribute to the thing that will be right, in the end. Its never lost. Its all accumulating, all building
up in intensity. But its not secure, is it? Its not solid or anchored. Christopher (Christopher Baker)
in Archipelago (2010)

A single idea from the human mind can build cities. An idea can transform the world and rewrite all
the rules. Dominick Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) in Inception (2010)

What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching
violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids
listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss.
Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop
music? Rob (John Cusack) in High Fidelity (2000)
The Colour of Money
Its just money, its made up, a piece of paper with some pictures on it so we dont all kill each other
trying to get something to eat. But its not wrong and its certainly not any different today than its ever
been. Ever. 1637, 1797, 1819, 37, 57,84, 1901, 07, 1929, 37, 73, and 1987... God damn did that
motherfucker fuck me up good, 92, 97, 2000, and whatever this is gonna be called. Theyre just the
same thing over and over. We cant help ourselves, and you and I cant control it, stop it, slow it, or
even ever so slightly alter it... We just react... and we get paid well for it if were right... and get left
by the side of the road if were wrong. Theres always been and theres always gonna be the same
percentage of winners and losers, happy fucks and sad sacks, fat pigs and starving dogs in this
world... yes there may be more of us today... but the percentages... they always stay exactly the same.
John Tuld (Jeremy Irons) in Margin Call (2011)

There is no nobility in poverty. Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) in The Wolf of Wall Street

Every loser in Vegas thinks they can do better. Do you know what winners do? They walk away from
the table when theyre theyre up. Coakley (Richard Jenkins) in Hall Pass (2011)

Good things come to those who work their asses off. Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) in
Nightcrawler (2014)

In a negotiation, never be the first man to mention a number. Jack (Oscar Isaac) in Mojave (2015)

You give your children enough money to do something but not enough to do nothing. Matt King
(George Clooney) in The Descendants (2011)

A 25% slice of something big is better than a 100% slice of nothing. Fast Eddie Felson (Paul
Newman) in The Hustler (1961)

Just cause youre in First Class doesnt make you a first class person. Philomena (Judi Dench) in
Philomena (2013)

The only thing that creates wealth is wealth. Bert Hansen (Christoph Waltz) in Horrible Bosses 2

Never feel sorry for a man who owns a plane. Charles Morse (Anthony Hopkins) in The Edge

When the destiny of a great fortune is at stake, mens greed spreads like a poison in the
bloodstream. Mr. Moustafa (F. Murray Abraham) in The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

If people want to live like this, with their big cars and these houses that they havent even paid for,
then you are necessary. The only reason they can continue to live like kings is because weve got our
fingers on the scale in THEIR favor. And if I were to take my finger off... then the whole world gets
really fucking fair, really fucking quickly. And no one wants that. They say they do...but they dont.
They want what were giving them, but they also want to play innocent and pretend they have no idea
how we get it. And thats more hypocrisy than I can swallow. So fuck em. Will Emerson (Paul
Bettany) in Margin Call (2011)

You must pay for everything in this world, one way or another. There is nothing free except the grace
of God. Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) in True Grit (2010)

In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power.
Then when you get the power, then you get the women. Tony Montana (Al Pacino) in Scarface

When a mans got money in his pocket he begins to appreciate peace. Joe (Clint Eastwood) in A
Fistful of Dollars (1964)

The interesting thing about rich people is theyre so cheap. Theyll spend 1.3 million on a necklace,
with diamonds the size of chocolates, then theyll lock it in a tin box they buy from Sears. Victor
Vic Spansky (Michael Caine) in Blood and Wine (1996)

When you are offered a favour or money, take the favour, not the money. Jesus said that. Irving
(Christian Bale) in American Hustle (2013)

Money is not interested in the little alleys of artistic endeavour. It wants the main highway. Norman
Mailer in Inside Deep Throat (2005)

Cake (2004)

I used to dream Id be surrounded by exotic womens underwear forever and ever. Now I know they
just save their best pairs for the nights they know theyre going to sleep with somebody. Rob (John
Cusack) in High Fidelity (2000)

You know what? When I look back on my little life and the birds Ive known, and think of all the
things theyve done for me and the little Ive done for them, youd think Ive had the best of it along
the line. But what have I got out of it? Ive got a bob or two, some decent clothes, a car, Ive got me
health back and I aint attached. But I aint got me peace of mind and if you aint got that, you aint
got nothing. I dunno. It seems to me if they aint got you one way theyve got you another. So whats
the answer? Thats what I keep asking myself: whats it all about? Know what I mean? Alfie
(Michael Caine) in Alfie (1966)

Its no good fooling about with love you know. You cant fall into it like a soft job without dirtying
up your hands. It takes muscle and guts. If you cant bear the thought of messing up your nice, tidy
soul, you better give up the whole idea of life and become a saint, because youll never make it as a
human being. Its either this world... or the next. Jimmy Porter (Richard Burton) in Look Back in
Anger (1959)

When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides.
And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are
become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what
love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the desire to mate every second of the
day. It is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every part of your body. No... dont
blush. I am telling you some truths. For that is just being in love; which any of us can convince
ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over, when being in love has burned away. Doesnt sound
very exciting, does it? But it is! Iannis (John Hurt) in Captain Corellis Mandolin (2001)

Talking about love is like dancing about architecture. Joan (Angelina Jolie) in Playing By Heart

Its a great thing to have a lady aboard with clean habits. It sets the man a good example. A man
alone, he gets to living like a hog. Charlie Allnut (Humphrey Bogart) in The African Queen (1951)

Men learn to love the person that theyre attracted to and that women become more and more
attracted to the person that they love. Graham Dalton (James Spader) in sex, lies, and videotape

with, every once in a while one of them cuts right through, right straight into you. Rev. Joshua

flower. Gustafe H. (Ralph Fiennes) in The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

I know these will all be stories someday, and our pictures will become old photographs. Well all
become somebodys mom or dad, but right now these moments are not stories. This is happening. I am
here, and I am looking at her, and she is so beautiful. I can see it. This one moment when you know
youre not a sad story. You are alive and you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and
everything that makes you wonder. And youre listening to that song and that drive with the people
you love most in this world. And in this moment, I swear, we are infinite. Charlie (Logan Lerman) in

McCauley (Robert De Niro) in Heat (1995)

Everybody wants Atticus Finch until theres a dead hooker in a hot tub. Hank Palmer (Robert
Downey Jr.) in The Judge (2014)

Few people understand the psychology of dealing with a highway traffic cop. A normal speeder will
panic and immediately pull over to the side. This is wrong. It arouses contempt in the cop heart. Make
the bastard chase you. He will follow. But he wont know what to make of your blinker signal that
says you are about to turn right. This is to let him know youre pulling off for a proper place to talk. It
will take him a moment to realize that hes about to make a 180 degree turn at speed, but you will be
ready for it. Brace for the gs, and fast heel-toe work. Raul Duke (Johnny Depp) in Fear and
Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)

The problem of what is legally permissible in descriptions of sexual acts or feelings in arts and
literature is of the greatest importance to a free society. What is prurient, and to whom? The material
so described is dangerous to some unspecified, susceptible reader. It is interesting that the person
applying such standards of censorship rarely feels as if their own physical or moral health is in
jeopardy. The desire to censor is not limited, however, to crackpots and bigots. There is in most of us
the desire to make the world conform to our own views, and it takes all of the force of our own
reason, as well as our legal institutions, to defy so human an urge. The battle of censorship will not be
finally settled by your Honours decision, but you will either add to liberal educated thinking or by
your decision you will add fuel to the fire of ignorance. Let there be light. Let there be honesty. Let
there be no running from non-existent destroyers of morals. Let there be honest understanding. Jake
Erlich (Jon Hamm) in Howl (2010)

Theres no such thing as worrying too much. Not when youve got the fuzz and the mafia after you.

world is without rules. The Joker (Heath Ledger) in The Dark Knight (2008)

If newspapers printed nothing but truth, they need never employ attorneys. Davidek (John Harkins)
in Absence of Malice (1981)

Murder is only killing without a licence. And everybody kills. Governments, the military, the
police. Arthur Bishop (Charles Bronson) in The Mechanic (1971)

You say somebodys guilty, everybody believes you. You say theyre innocent, nobody cares.
Gallagher (Paul Newman) in Absence of Malice (1981)

People who stand outside the law oftentimes end up as heroes. Arthur Bishop (Charles Bronson) in
The Mechanic (1971)

Youre not gonna learn what it means to be a cop by eating hot dogs and picking your teeth and
asking stupid questions. We live this job. Its something we are, not something we do! Every time a
cop walks up to a car and has to give a speeding ticket, he knows he may have to kill someone or be
killed himself. Thats not something you step into by strapping on a rubber gun and riding around all
day. You get to go back to your million-dollar beach house and your bimbos and your blowjobs and
you get 17 takes to get it right. We get one take. It lasts our whole lives. We mess it up and were
dead. John Moss (James Woods) in The Hard Way (1991)

If you want justice, go to a whorehouse. If you wanna get fucked, go to court. Martin Vail (Richard
Gere) in Primal Fear (1996)

(Michael Biehn) in Rampage (1987)

Laws change. Universal truths persist. Bass (Brad Pitt) in 12 Years A Slave (2013)

It is only very, very stupid people who think The Law is stupid. Unnamed protagonist/narrator
(Daniel Craig) in Layer Cake (2004)

The first thing a cop learns is he cant trust anybody but his partner. Danny Ciello (Treat Williams)
in Prince of the City (1981)

Who can trust a cop who dont take money? Tom Keough (Jack Kehoe) in Serpico (1973)

were. Gary Slutkin MD in The Interrupters (2011)

There is no gene for fate. Vincent Freeman (Ethan Hawke) in Gattaca (1997)

If you look at us human beings and animals as well, the fact is that when we are confronted by an
extremely dangerous situation, it triggers a force in us called I want to survive! That means you react
now! Its Its a primitive force to just escape. And I believe that the enemy is the image we have
of heroes. All those stories about heroes, and the pressure to be a hero, and do heroic acts in terrible
situations. But the truth is when reality is staring you in the face, and youre afraid to die, very few of
us are heroic. Just look at the Estonia. Eight hundred and fifty people died on board. Only 137
survived. And these people they tramped on dead bodies. They knocked down children and old

Dogma (1999)

(Abdullrahman Al Gohani) in Wadjda (2013)

Saving someones life is like falling in love. The best drug in the world. For days, sometimes weeks
afterwards, you walk the streets, making infinite whatever you see. Once, for a few weeks, I couldnt
feel the earth - everything I touched became lighter. Horns played in my shoes. Flowers fell from my
pockets. You wonder if youve become immortal, as if youve saved your own life as well. God has
passed through you. Why deny it, that for a moment there, God was you? Frank Pierce (Nicolas
Cage) in Bringing out The Dead (1999)

In desperate times, false gods abound. People put their faith in the loudest preacher and hope theyre

Olsson) in S som i himmelen, aka As It Is In Heaven (2004)
A Matter of Life and Death
Get busy living, or get busy dying. Ellis Boyd Red Redding (Morgan Freeman) in The Shawshank

How can you even think of killing yourself? I mean isnt it so stupid? I mean, look at all the people
up there on the screen. Theyre real funny, and what if the worst is true? What if theres no God and
you only go around once and thats it? You know, dont you wanna be part of the experience? You
know, what the hell? Its not all a drag. And Im thinking to myself, Geez, I should stop ruining my
life, searching for answers Im never going to get, and just enjoy it while it lasts. And after, who
knows? I mean, maybe there is something. Nobody really knows. I know maybe is a very slim reed
to hang your whole life on, but thats the best we have. Mickey (Woody Allen) in Hannah and her
Sisters (1986)

The aperture through which the sand runs is so tiny that... that first it seems as if the level in the

think about it. Gustav von Aschenbach (Dirk Bograde) in Death in Venice (1971)

(Sean Connery) Robin and Marian (1976)

When you die youre going to regret the things you dont do. You think youre queer? Im going to
tell you something: were all queer. You think youre a thief? So what? You get befuddled by a
middle-class morality? Get shut of it. Shut it out. You cheat on your wife? You did it, live with it. You
fuck little girls, so be it. Theres an absolute morality? Maybe. And then what? If you think there is,
go ahead, be that thing. Bad people go to hell? I dont think so. If you think that, act that way. A hell
exists on earth? Yes. I wont live in it. Thats me. Ricky Roma (Al Pacino) in Glengarry Glen Ross

All those negotiations and arguments and secrets, the compromises. The slower we move the faster

sharks. Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) in Up in the Air (2009)

choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health,
low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter
home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suit on
hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on
Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows,
stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in
a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to
replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life. Renton (Ewan McGregor) in Trainspotting

sometimes its not about knowing the right answer. Sometimes its about asking the right questions.

Lies (1996)

Jouranlisms hard work. Everybodys under pressure, everybodys grinding to get the issue out,
nobodys allowed to sleep. But you are allowed to smile once in a while. I mean, even Woodward
and Bernstein went out for a burger once in a while, and they won a Pulitzer. Some reporters think its
political content that makes a story memorable. I think its the people you find; their quirks, their
flaws. What makes them funny, what makes them human. Journalism is just the art of capturing
behaviour. You have to know who youre writing for and you have to know what youre good at.
Stephen Glass (Hayden Christensen) in Shattered Glass (2003)

A.I. is like any intelligence: it has needs. Max Waters (Paul Bettany) in Transcendence (2014)

America has become a cruel and vicious place. We reward the shallowest, the dumbest, the meanest
and the loudest. We no longer have any common sense or decency. No sense of shame. There is no
right and wrong. The worst qualities in people are looked up to and celebrated. Lying and spreading
fear are fine. As long as you make money doin it. Weve become a nation of slogan-saying, bile-
spewing hate-mongers. Weve lost our kindness. Weve lost our soul. Frank (Joel Murray) in God
Bless America (2011)

There are plenty of others willing to call you a failure. A fool. A loser. A hopeless souse! Dont you
ever say it of yourself. You send out the wrong signal. That is what people pick up. Do you
understand? You care about something, you fight for it. You hit a wall, you push through it. Theres
something you need to know about failure: you can never let it defeat you. Captain Archibald
Haddock (Andy Serkis) in The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (2011)

Make sure they remember you. Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson) in The Hunger Games

I feel that life is divided up into the horrible and the miserable. Those are the two categories, you
know. The horrible would be like, I dont know, terminal cases, you know, and blind people. And

everyone else. So when you go through life you should be thankful that youre miserable, because
youre very lucky to be miserable. Alvy Singer (Woody Allen) in Annie Hall (1977).

Think big, think positive, never show any sign of weakness. Always go for the throat. Buy low, sell
high. Fear? Thats the other guys problem. Louis Winthorpe III (Dan Aykroyd) in Trading Places

The first guy through the wall... he always gets bloody... always. This is threatening not just a way of
doing business... but in their minds, its threatening the game. Really what its threatening is their
livelihood, their jobs. Its threatening the way they do things... and every time that happens, whether
its the government, a way of doing business, whatever, the people who are holding the reins - they
have their hands on the switch - they go batshit crazy. John Henry (Arliss Howard) in Moneyball

The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability
whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf,

can, for only $2.95, get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self. Joe Fox (Tom
Hanks) in Youve Got Mail (1998)

You stop seeing the other person. You just see weird projections of your own junk. Jules (Julianne
Moore) in The Kids Are All Right (2010)

Everyone tells you that the minute you get married, every other woman in the world suddenly finds
you attractive. Well, thats not true. It only affects the kind of women you always wanted to sleep

cant even look at them. Jamie (Jeremy Jordan) in The Last Five Years (2014)

Being a good shot, being quick with a pistol, that dont do no harm, but it dont mean much next to
