    I knew these people. These two people. They were in love with each other. The girl was very young, about 17 or 18, I guess. And the guy was quite a bit older. He was kind of raggedy and wild.

    Somebody said, of course money doesn't make you happy, but it's still better to cry in a car than in a subway.

    You fucking with me you fucking with a Snoop D - O - Double G.

    After watching Poor Things, I was certain that Emma Stone's Best Actress Oscar was nailed on. After watching this, I'm not too sure anymore. This is so much more than a compelling courtroom drama or murder mystery, with Trier crafting a profound character…
