It's certainly a phenomenon in all walks of life.
What do you mean?
Well, at one point, you've got it.
Then you lose it, and it's gone forever.
All walks of life.
Georgie best, for example, had it, lost it,
Or david bowie, or lou reed.
Lou reed? Some of his solo stuff's not bad.
No, it's not bad, but it's not great either, is it?
And in your heart, you kind of know
That although it sounds all right,
It's actually just shite.
So who else?
Charlie nicholas, david niven,
Malcolm mclaren, elvis presley.
Okay, okay, so what is the point you're trying to make?
[ sighs ] all I am trying to do, mark,
Is to help you understand
That "the name of the rose" is merely a blip
On an otherwise uninterrupted downward trajectory.
And what about "the untouchables"?
I don't rate that at all.
Despite the academy award?
That means fuck all.
It's a sympathy vote.
[ sighs ]
So we all get old, we can't hack it anymore, and that's it?
That's your theory?
Beautifully fucking illustrated.
Give me the gun.
Give me the gun.
[ imitating sean connery ] do you see the beast?
Have you got it in your sights?
[ imitating connery ] clear enough, miss moneypenny.
This should present no significant problems.
[ gunshot, dog barking, man screaming ]
Aah! No! Fuck! Aah!
For a vegetarian, rents, you're a fucking evil shot.
