American Beauty (1999) I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn’t a second at all, it stretches on forever, like an ocean of time… For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout camp, watching falling stars… And yellow leaves, from the maple trees, that lined our street… Or my grandmother’s hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper… And the first time I saw my cousin Tony’s brand new Firebird… And Janie… And Janie… And… Carolyn. I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me… but it’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life… You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry… you will someday.

“What’s great about Dana as a character is she’s truly liberal. She’s a curious creature and she’s interested in the world around her. She’s not daunted by those things. That’s why she had the foresight and the maturity to accept her father at a time when her mother wasn’t able to do that. And that’s what’s particularly sad now—even she can’t make that step anymore. She can’t make that leap.” —Damian Lewis
They told me there was nothing out there, nothing to fear. But the night my parents were murdered I caught a glimpse of something. I’ve looked for it ever since. I went around the world, searched in all the s h a d o w s. And there is something out there in the d a r k n e s s, something terrifying, something that will not stop until it gets revenge… Me.
