Jarod Warren from TheMoviePool writes: Every actor, veteran or amateur, longs for the opportunity to opine on the various observations on the life and situations surrounding them. Shakespeare's works are chock full of such emotional diatribes delivered by a single individual either to an audience of characters or to the audience themselves.
Though the motivations may differ between each, sometimes inspirational, historical, flashback, observational, or just to deliver one hell of a threat, each holds a place in our minds and hearts even when the celluloid treatment as a whole has faded. These are not just the best monologues in the past 10 years of film. They're the best captures of the human condition in all its beautiful, confounding, and terrifying glory.
That Joker speech still gives me the chills when I hear it, and V for Vendetta are filled with great lines and speeches. It's hard to choose just one from it.
Some of the best monologues in V were not even given by a actor you could see in the film, like the letter's EV recieved while in her false prison of understanding...
A respark of interest in a film can have on you.
I mean this article alone made me look back at one film in particular V for Vendetta and I have learned things about the cast and writers that I would never have known.
Like how Hugo Wallace Weaving (Mr.Anderson from the Matrix) starred in it as V!
Not to disrespect the other films in which this article features but V is a favorite of mine!
I'm not even that big on Spike Lee but Ed Norton's NYC rant makes that damn movie!
A few of these I haven't seen. Need to catch up. But love that Joker.
