“Revolver” is a personal favourite movie of mine and if you haven’t watched it yet, I suggest you do ASAP. It is a little hard to understand, so if you need to watch it more than once to grasp it fully, don’t feel bad about it. 😉 I’ve seen it many times and I always discover new, amazing intricacies within the film and in the word play. It’s just one of those films that never seems to get old!
With some of the best and most provocative quotes in cinematic history (in my opinion), the legendary director Guy Richie created a masterpiece that many feel is one of the most underrated films of all time.
With a star studded cast, there are many scenes that will provoke your mental fortitude. I’ve put some of the most provocative quotes and scenes below for your viewing pleasure.
THE EGO’s FORMULA
“IN EVERY GAME AND CON THERE IS ALWAYS AN OPPONENT AND THERE IS ALWAYS A VICTIM.”
“RULE #1: “IF YOU WANT TO GET SMARTER, PLAY A SMARTER OPPONENT.”
RULE #2: “THE MORE SOPHISTICATED THE GAME, THE MORE SOPHISTICATED THE OPPONENT.”
“THE BIGGER THE ENVIRONMENT, THE EASIER THE CONTROL.”
“THE OPPONENT SIMPLY DISTRACTS THEIR VICTIM BY GETTING THEM CONSUMED WITH THIER OWN CONSUMPTION.”
“THE BIGER THE TRICK, THE OLDER THE TRICK, THE EASIER IT IS TO PULL.”
“YOU BELIEVE IT CAN’T BE THAT OLD, AND IT CAN’T BE THAT BIG FOR SO MANY PEOPLE TO HAVE FALLEN FOR IT.”
“EVENTUALLY WHEN THE OPPONENT IS CHALLENGED OR QUESTIONED, IT MEANS THE VICTIM’S INVESTMENT AND THUS, HIS INTELLIGENCE IS QUESTIONED. NOONE CAN ACCEPT THAT, NOT EVEN TO THEMSELVES.”
“YOU WILL ALWAYS FIND A GOOD OPPONENT IN THE VERY LAST PLACE YOU WOULD EVER LOOK.”
THE HIGHER SELF FORMULA
“YOU KNOW WHAT’S SO ELEGANT ABOUT THIS LITTLE GAME JAKE? NOBODY KNOWS WHERE THE ENEMY IS. THEY DONT EVEN KNOW HE EXISTS.”
“HE IS IN EVERY ONE OF THEIR HEADS, AND THEY TRUST HIM BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY ARE HIM.”
“IT’S BEAUTIFUL MAN, YOU HAVE TO ADMIRE THE OPPONENT’S ELEGANCE.”
