MOVIE QUOTES – Having the last laugh
Being classy in a trashy way. Tried capturing the different ways the irony is portrayed by the characters of a few of my favourite movies.
quotes chosen include visual imagery and symbols
“Clueless” (1995) – Being Haughty
“White Chicks” (2004) – Being triumphant
“Happiness” (1998) – Being indignant
ANDY: You think I don’t appreciate art? You think I don’t understand fashion? You think I’m not hip? You think I’m pathetic? A nerd? A lard-ass fat-so? You think I’m shit? Well, you’re wrong, ’cause i’m champagne, and you’re shit. Until the day you die, you, not me, will always be shit.
“The Breakfast Club” (1985) – Being themselves
“You see us as you want to see us—in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain…and an athlete…and a basket case…a princess…and a criminal. Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, The Breakfast Club.”
Une Femme est une femme (1961) – A woman is a woman
