Sometimes I watch this scene when I’m feeling pessimistic because I can’t think of anything to write. It’s like lighting a fire under my own ass. It’s from the movie, Adaptation., which follows a screenwriter and his struggle to adapt Susan Orlean’s book, The Orchid Thief.
From the clip:
Nothing happens in the world? Are you out of your fucking mind? People are murdered every day. There’s genocide, war, corruption. Every fucking day, somewhere in the world, somebody sacrifices his life to save someone else. Every fucking day, someone, somewhere takes a conscious decision to destroy someone else. People find love, people lose it. For Christ’s sake, a child watches her mother beaten to death on the steps of a church. Someone goes hungry. Somebody else betrays his best friend for a woman. If you can’t find that stuff in life, then you, my friend, don’t know crap about life! And why the FUCK are you wasting my two precious hours with your movie? I don’t have any use for it! I don’t have any bloody use for it!
