Hello, stranger...

This is a private blog for my cinematic obsessions and scintillating (one-sided) reflections about movies. Feel yourself at home!

Monday monologues (XXIII)


My name is Dalton Russell. Pay strict attention to what I say because I choose my words carefully and I never repeat myself. I've told you my name: that's the Who. The Where could most readily be described as a prison cell. But there's a vast difference between being stuck in a tiny cell and being in prison. The What is easy: recently I planned and set in motion events to execute the perfect bank robbery. That's also the When. As for the Why: beyond the obvious financial motivation, it's exceedingly simple... because I can. Which leaves us only with the How; and therein, as the Bard would tell us, lies the rub. (Clive Owen in Spike Lee's stunning heist flick Inside Man/2006)
