Have you ever had a thought that just seems to pop into your head out of nowhere? Obviously there’s a reason for it tucked away in the cerebral tangle but, on the surface, there appears to be no apparent reason, do you know what I mean? Yes? Good, in that case you’ll understand why I am posting this. There’s no real reason other than this scene popped into my head and I wanted to share it with you as it’s so unbelievably poignant……..
“I’ve… seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those… moments will be lost… in time… like… tears… in rain. Time… to die”
I saw this film many, many years ago and this scene has stuck with me during all that time; Rutger Hauer’s acting was absolutely flawless and his speech exquisitely sad.
Do you have any film moments like that? They’ve stayed with you from the moment you first saw them and just randomly pop into you head every now and again? Let me know, I’d love to hear from you..
