Quotables

The Addiction (1995)

Kathleen:

Dependency is a marvelous thing. It does more for the soul than any formulation of doctoral material.

Peina:

The entire world’s a graveyard, and we, the birds of prey picking at the bones. That’s all we are. We’re the ones who let the dying know the hour has come.

Liquid Sky (1982)

Margaret:

I kill with my c*nt.

Starship Troopers (1997)

Jean Rasczak:

Correct. Naked force has resolved more conflicts throughout history than any other factor. The contrary opinion, that violence doesn’t solve anything, is wishful thinking at its worst; people who forget that always die.

Sky Marshal Dienes:

We must meet this threat with our courage, our valor, indeed with our very lives to ensure that human civilization, not insect, dominates this galaxy, now and always!

The Ruling Class (1972)

Jack Arnold Alexander Tancred Gurney, 14th Earl of Gurney:

I was only trying to do what’s expected me. I recall as a sign of normalcy in our circle to slaughter anything that moves.

Lady Claire Gurney:

How do you know you’re God?

Jack Arnold Alexander Tancred Gurney, 14th Earl of Gurney:

Simple. When I pray to Him, I find I am talking to myself.

Out there

The highest achievements of the aesthetic decadence occurred during the Victorian era. Cultural works in this aesthetic today are merely lurid because they aim to shock morally rather than to explore the delicate intersection of disgust and desire which over-rides all unconscious inhibitions.

Cult classics are films that are typically enhanced by high grade ganja (see Zardoz, the original Solaris, The Big Lebowski, The Saragossa Manuscript, etc). Exceptions to this rule include Liquid Sky (1983) and The Addiction (1995).
