- Greatest Monologue in a film?
Be interested to hear the different opinions/nominations.
Tempted by Chaplin’s final speech in The Great Dictator but this is probably my favourite from Network (lot’s in that film but there’s something about the last two lines here):

Ezekiel 25:17. “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.” I been sayin’ that shit for years. And if you ever heard it, it meant your ass. I never really questioned what it meant. I thought it was just a cold-blooded thing to say to a **** before you popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some shit this mornin’ made me think twice. Now I’m thinkin’: it could mean you’re the evil man. And I’m the righteous man. And Mr. .45 here, he’s the shepherd protecting my righteous ass in the valley of darkness. Or it could be you’re the righteous man and I’m the shepherd and it’s the world that’s evil and selfish. I’d like that. But that shit ain’t the truth. The truth is you’re the weak. And I’m the tyranny of evil men. But I’m tryin, Ringo. I’m tryin’ real hard to be the shepherd.Posted 4 years ago
Yup then there’s the restaurant scene his attention to detail on accents is superb so much so it was made part of the plot.
Do you mean the basement bar scene? That is a cracker, as is the opening scene.
I also like the restaurant scene where he meets her, years later, with Geobbels.Posted 4 years ago
