F*uck You!

A perfect rant. This scene from 25th Hour is one of the best combinations of screen writing, monologue, photography, lighting, setting, montage and music. (thats basically a perfect scene)

Basically...Edward Norton, is a drug dealer who's been busted and about to start a long stretch in jail...he has one day left on the outside and in this scene...he's kinda pissed off...

Spike Lee

(screenplay David Benioff)

(music Terence Blanchard)

  1. What a great piece of writing.
    It sounds like a piece of beat generation poetry. As a poem it's so much better than the folksy wank we get in ads: you know, the one about the British summer or any Roger McGough.
