But let’s agree that striking, well-written and staged dialogues have the power to enter our minds. It is these lines memorized and reproduced by actors and actresses that make us laugh, cry, get angry, in short, experience the cinematic experience – be it a complex narrative or even a simple everyday conversation.

The list of movie dialogues is gigantic, so we brought some of the most striking and remembered, worthy of an Oscar, so to speak. Check it out below!

1. pulp Fiction

In the plot of the feature film directed by Quentin Tarantino, Vincent and Jules, played by John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson respectively, are mobsters and must fulfill a series of services.

In one of the works, Vincent takes Mia (Uma Thurman) to a nightclub, and there is a dialogue to, let’s say, “break the ice”, even if in a different way.

“Don’t you hate it?

“Don’t hate what?”

— The awkward silences. Why do we have to talk about idiocy to feel comfortable?

– I don’t know. It is a good question.

“That’s how you know you’ve found someone special. When you can be quiet for a minute and be comfortable in silence.”

two. Forrest Gump

He was a soldier in the Vietnam War, marathon runner, composer, fight evader… he was everything in life! Forrest Gump, played by Tom Hanks, He did so much in his life that it’s hard to count. — not that that was a big deal for him, because Robert Zemeckis’s film is about exactly that.

As a child, he said these words to a classmate when the two were on a school bus:

“- Have you ever dreamed of what you’re going to be in life?

“What am I going to be? Won’t it be me?”

Little did he know that, in fact, the phrase would make sense in view of the countless feats and achievements that only a person like him could achieve.

3. The Truman Show


Living on a reality show — long before BBB became a fever on Brazilian soil — Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) began to suspect the things that happened around him.

Spotlights falling from the sky? It was in the face of numerous evidences that Truman began to suspect that his life was nothing more than a farce invented to be broadcast on TV.

In one of the striking dialogues of Peter Weir’s film, the protagonist reveals to want leave your routine to travel aroundbut there was someone to discourage the poor guy.

“I want to be an explorer, like the great Magellan.

– You are late. There’s nothing to explore.”

4. Fight Club

In this great David Fincher classic, Jack (Edward Norton) has his monotonous life turned upside down after meeting Brad Pitt’s character, who explains, in his own way, how life should be led:

“If you’re reading this, then this warning is for you. Every word in that useless little letter is a second less of your life. Don’t you have anything else to do? Your life is so empty that you don’t have anything better to do to pass the time? Or are you so easily impressed by authority that you respect everything he says? Do you read everything you’re supposed to read? Think everything you’re supposed to think? Buy everything they say you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet someone of the opposite sex. Stop buying things and masturbating too much. Quit your job. Start a fight. Demonstrate that you’re alive. If you don’t show your humanity, you’ll become a statistic. Be warned… Tyler .”

This is perhaps one of the most remembered movie dialogues in history.

5. matrix

The special effects of cinema were never the same after The Matrix, by the Wachowski sisters, set an unprecedented standard of quality. But the film goes beyond aesthetics and also brings interesting reflections, especially about the reality in which we live.

This is the dilemma faced by Keanu Reeves’ character in dialogue with Morpheus, by Laurence Fishburne, who asks him:

“Do you believe in fate, Neo?

– No.

– Why not?

“I don’t like the idea of ​​not being in control of my life.”

6. A dream of freedom


It is virtually impossible not to mention A dream of freedom, by Frank Darabont, when it comes to movie dialogues. The film presents the moving story of companionship lived by the characters of Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins, who literally dream of leaving the place.

“—Ellis Boyd Redding, your file says you served 40 years of your life sentence. Do you feel rehabilitated?

“Rehabilitated? Well, let’s see, I have no idea what that means.

— It means being able to live in society again…

“I know what it means to you, son. For me, this is just an empty phrase, invented by politicians. So that young people like you can wear a suit and tie and set an example. What you want to know? If I’m sorry?

– It is?

“There isn’t a day that I don’t regret it.” Not because I’m here, or because I feel I have to. I think about what I was before. A stupid boy who committed a terrible crime. I want to tell you how it all happened, but I can’t. That boy no longer exists, only this old man remains. I must live with it. Rehabilitated? What a sad word.”

7. Trainspotting

Emblematic for its aesthetics, soundtrack and, of course, striking dialogues, the brilliant Trainspotting, by Danny Boyle, is about the sad refuge people find in drugs when life is not going well. It is at this moment that Mark Renton, Ewan McGregor’s character, receives a touch from Diane, from Kelly Macdonald:

“—You’re not getting younger. The world changes. Music changes. Even drugs change. You can’t dream all day about heroin and ‘Ziggy’ Pop.

“It’s Iggy Pop.

– Whatever. He’s dead.

– No. Last year he toured. Tommy saw.

“You need to find something new.”

8. A brilliant mind


Directed by Ron Howard, the brilliant John Nash, played by Russell Crowe, is a true math genius. And he uses his knowledge even when flirting:

“Well, how big is the universe?

“It’s infinite.

– How do you know?

“That’s information.

“But it hasn’t been demonstrated. You did not see. How can you be sure?

– I don’t have. I think so.

“So it is with love. I think.”

9. The Untouchables

Another beautiful feature film about companionship, the French production stands out for the sinuous but beautiful relationship between Philippe and Driss. The temperament of the two is strong and invades even the simplest dialogues between them, as in this conversation about the famous painter Francisco de Goya:

“Do you like this painting?

– Yes. I like Goya a lot.

“Yes, it’s not bad. But he hasn’t been doing much lately.”

10. Interstellar

Striking dialogues abound in Interstellar, by Christopher Nolan. The search for the unknown faced by a group of explorers makes your relationships become more intimate. It is in this situation that the characters of Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway drew some sighs from the spectators:

“So believe me when I say that love isn’t something we made up. It’s powerful. It must mean something.

“Love has meaning. A social utility, a social function…

“We love people who have died. What social use is there in that?

– None.

“Suddenly it means something more.” Something we still can’t understand. Suddenly it is a proof, an artifact of a higher dimension that we do not consciously perceive. I’m crisscrossing the universe for someone I haven’t seen in a decade who is probably dead. Love is the only thing we are capable of perceiving that transcends the dimensions of time and space. Suddenly we should believe it, even if we can’t understand it.”

11. birdman


In the acclaimed feature film by Alejandro González Iñárritu, Michael Keaton gives life to Riggan, an actor who is as decadent as he is self-centered. The personality trait can be seen in what is certainly one of the most remembered movie dialogues of the last decade:

“‘I have an opportunity to do something good. I have to take advantage of it. I have to.

– It’s curious. She was here, waiting for you. I suddenly couldn’t remember why we broke up.

“The last time I flew in from Los Angeles, George Clooney was sitting two seats in front with some gold weights and that damn chin. We got through a really bad storm. The plane was rocking a lot. Everyone on the plane was crying. They cried. They prayed, you know? I was there, sitting. They crying, I sitting. And I was like, “Holy shit, tomorrow when Sam reads the paper, he’s going to see Clooney’s face on the front page, not mine.”

12. Back to the future

Dispensing with introductions, the trilogy directed by Robert Zemeckis is practically synonymous with striking dialogues.

Even if they cause the biggest mess in the present due to the adventures and misadventures that Marty McFly and Doc Brown, played by Michael J. Foz and Christopher Lloyd, experience between the past and the future, there is still room for not so deep reflections, despite doing sense:

“And what happened to all this talk about altering future events? The space-time continuity?

“Well, it doesn’t matter.”
