“You can’t make fucking your life’s work.”
“Don’t tell me what I can and can’t do.”
As of now this is my favorite Jack Nicholson performance (outside of Kubrick’s
The Shining). I feel as though this is a film that I’ll need to watch again (and probably again) to really soak everything in. The jumps from setting to setting while also time traveling 25 or so years got pretty overwhelming for me.
I’m honestly VERY impressed with the entirety of this cast. The heated argument between Jonathan and Bobbie easily took the cake for me though.
Not to mention the shot of Jonathan and Susan sitting at the restaurant with the oranges and the purples coated over them. Pure eye candy.
“Everybody puts on an act.”
“So even if you meet somebody you don’t know who you’re meeting.”
“Because you’re meeting the act.”
“That’s right. Not the person.”
