Advantages Great movies
The Deer Hunter (1978)"We gotta play with more bullets"
The Shawshank Redemption (1994)"Rita Hayworth?"
Head Bull Haig: Dufresne? Get your ass out here, boy! You're holding up the show!
Head Bull Haig: Don't make me come down there now! I'll thump your skull for you!
[Still no answer. Glaring, Haig stalks down the tier, clipboard in hand. His men fall in behind]
Head Bull Haig: Dufresne, dammit, you're putting me behind! You better be sick or dead in there, I sh*t you not!
[They arrive at bars. Their faces go slack. Stunned. Softly]
Head Bull Haig: Oh my Holy God.
It's the moment when the prisons tough warden (Bob Gunton) goes in to Andy Dufrenses (Tim Robbins) cell and all that leads up to that moment. It finally clicks in that there's been meaning to all Dufrenses restrained and phlegmatic actions throughout the first 90 minutes of this beautiful and superbly written Darrabont screenplay (from Stephen Kings book) and the viewer is rewarded with the ending he waited patiently and longed for, a film all about hope and patience. Ok Robbins doesn't age much in those twenty years hard labour and keeps the same cell for all that time but why fault a masterpiece for a couple of bad brush strokes.
