Do you doubt what’s in the reports that have followed me around all my life? What do they say, if you had to sum it up? They say I’m insane. No, it’s okay. You can nod because it’s true.
Look, Dave, I can see you’re really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill and think things over.
Almost Famous (2000) dir. Cameron Crowe
My ears hear what others cannot hear; small faraway things people cannot normally see are visible to me. These senses are the fruits of a lifetime of longing, longing to be rescued, to be completed. Just as the skirt needs the wind to billow, I’m not formed by things that are of myself alone. I wear my father’s belt tied around my mother’s blouse, and shoes which are from my uncle. This is me. Just as a flower does not choose its color, we are not responsible for what we have come to be. Only once you realize this do you become free, and to become adult is to become free.
Mulholland Drive (2001)
I think you’ve still got lightning in you.
Punch-Drunk Love (Paul Thomas Anderson, 2002)
