Common Sense, Nonsense, and Everything in Between

The Tourist

Policeman: You wish to report a murder.
Frank Taylor: Attempted murder.
Policeman: That’s not so serious.
Frank Taylor: Not when you downgrade it from murder. But when you upgrade it from room service, it’s quite serious.

Cousin brought up this movie in his Facebook Timeline. I like The Tourist, probably because of Jolie and Depp, and probably because of the story. I like how the writer, Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, who is also the director of the movie tell the story. Quite a light movie which you enjoy from your sofa with some pop-corn. I somehow recall that I watched the movie with Chef Tony’s Popcorn.

I am a fans of this genre, bits of mystery, bits of action, bits of ass kicking, bits of comedy. And, I love the small chats! Always. In fact, you can always find something interesting in the small chats. I remember quoting The Bank Job:

Kevin Swain: We’re not bank robbers.
Terry Leather: Maybe that’s why we could get away with it.
Dave Shilling: It’s a bit daunting, isn’t it?
Terry Leather: You know what scares me more? Living and dying with nothing to show for it. You know how old Mozart was when he composed his first minuet?
Dave Shilling: No.
Terry Leather: Five. Five! A fucking minuet!
Kevin Swain: And how would you know that fact, Terry?
Terry Leather: Because it’s tattooed on that stripper’s arse, Kevin. What the fuck’s it matter how I know? It’s a fact and you’re missing the point, Kev. What I’m trying to say is, we stop fucking about and stop picking the shit from under our fingernails.
