Defining Britishness

shitmystudentswrite:

Being British means striving to be of better class or marry into it. It was about who could be the best liar.

I struggle to find a counter-argument.

MOLTO PANCAKOS. MOLTO PANCAKOS. HAI.

(Also: that last pratfall … dear God.)

I read the treatment and thought, another cop picture. Then Waldo Salt came over with a screenplay that I could relate to and I was there. Then I met Frank Serpico. The moment I shook his hand and looked into his eyes, I understood what that movie could be. I thought there was something there that I could play. I went out with the cops one night, did about five minutes of that and said, “I can’t do this stuff.” So I would just sort of hang around Frank, long enough to sort of feel him. One time we were out at my rented beach house in Montauk. We were sitting there looking at the water. And I thought, well I might as well be like everybody and ask a silly question, which was, “Why Frank?” Why did you do it?” He said, “Well, Al, I don’t know. I guess I have to say it would be because… if I didn’t, who would I be when I listened to a piece of music?” I mean, what a way of putting it! That’s the kind of guy he was. I enjoyed being with him. There was mischief in his eyes. —Al Pacino

Dear every screenwriter, read Waldo Salt & Norman Wexler’s screenplay for Serpico.

Anybody can play weird, that’s easy. What’s hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple complicated is commonplace. Making the complicated simple - awesomely simple - that’s creativity.

Well, well, keep at it: ply the shears and paste,
Concoct from feasts of other men your hashes,
And should the thing be wanting fire or taste,
Blow into flame your little heap of ashes:
You’ll find some apes and children who’ll admire,
If admiration is your chief desire;
But what is uttered from the heart alone
Will win the hearts of others to your own.

Faust (Part One), Goethe (trans. Philip Wayne)
