Old is gold

Watched the 1998 film "Enemy of the State" last night.
What a movie boss... I love to hate Will Smith. That man made my cry while watching "Pursuit of Happyness. (Spelt that way in film if I am right)" And he acts so incredibly well, I will pat him 500 times if I happen to meet him somewhere in Dubai.
And Gene Hackman. What a screen presence!
A child of a broken home, Gene Hackman left home at 16 for a 3-year hitch. And where did he reach. The top. In Hollywood. Great guy. Global-Madrasi salutes you, GH.
Just a few dialogues I found fantastic in the film:

"You're either very smart or incredibly stupid."

"You were right, I was wrong, but this is not the time for the 'I told you so' speech."

"You live another day, I am very impressed."

Enemy of the state is a good movie!

Geneh Hackman is an actor par excellence! I suggest you watch the following movies of his:

Crimson Tide
The Conversation
Behind Enemy Lines
The French Connection
Unforgiven; and
Runaway Jury

Old indeed is gold!

I love Will Smith so much. <3

My favorite quote:
Eric Dean: So, who won the fight?
Robert Clayton Dean: This is your dad, Eric. You know, when I put my foot down, that's it.
Eric Dean: My mom won.

Do you know why I consider Gene Heckman as a legendary actor becasue the way he delivers his dialogues. His impeccable acting prowess could be challenged by only two actors in the world - Robert De Nior and Al Pacino. Remember his bloody acting in 'the quick and the dead'. And Will Smith. He has become one of the most bankable actors of Hollywood. But I am yet to watch Enemy of the State.
