Trainspotting por Melhor Manifesto

Pode ser estúpido, mas cada um faz a sua escolha. Choose!

Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, 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… But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin’ else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you’ve got heroin?

Sociedade dos Poetas Mortos por Melhor Inspiração, Antes & Depois e Manifesto

Alô, TED!

Lá em 1989, o Mr Keating já falava sobre a importância de palavras e ideias.

No matter what anybody tells you: words and ideas can change the world. (…) We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

Fazia tempo que eu não via esse filme e fiquei surpresa ao reconhecer o Josh Charles, o Will Gardner de The Good Wife, ao lado do WilsonRobert Sean Leonard e do Ethan Hawke.

Essa cena emociona sempre e, por isso mesmo, não tinha como ficar de fora.
