Finn: I did it! I did it! I am a wild success! I sold 'em all, all my paintings. You don't have to be embarrassed by me anymore. I'm rich! Isn't that what you wanted? Aren't we happy now? Don't you understand that everything I do, I do it for you? Anything that might be special in me, is you.
Sadly, Finn's entire life purpose is to make Estella fall in love with him. This scene is also super emotional because it comes after he *somewhat* snubs the man who practically raised him. He does everything he is supposed to but at the end of the day, he still gets his heart broken.
This scene is extremely hard to watch. Jim (Leonardo Dicaprio) has fallen victim to a heroin addiction and comes to his mother for money. He cries and begs for her to hold his hand only to turn on her when she refuses to give him money. God, I can't even go into detail on this one because it hits too close to home. What I will say is that Leo's portrayal of a heroin addict going through a withdrawal is one of the most accurate I have ever seen.
If you haven't seen Legends of the Fall, I suggest you do it as soon as possible. It'll make you experience a wide range of emotions. However, the scene where Samuel dies will make you want to cry and scream. To truly appreciate this scene, you need to know two things: Samuel is the sweetest and most gentle Ludlow brother and he goes to war because he feels it's his duty to help. He's just the best. AND HE DIES. No matter what Tristan and Alfred did, they just couldn't protect Samuel. It's heartbreaking.
Lisa: You know, there's too many buttons in the world. There's too many buttons and they're just - There's way too many just begging to be pressed, they're just begging to be pressed, you know? They're just - they're just begging to be pressed, and it makes me wonder, it really makes me fucking wonder, why doesn't anyone ever press mine? Why am I so neglected? Why doesn't anyone reach in and rip out the truth and tell me that I'm a fucking whore, or that my parents wish I were dead?
Susanna: Because you're dead already, Lisa! No one cares if you die, Lisa, because you're dead already. Your heart is cold. That's why you keep coming back here. You're not free. You need this place, you need it to feel alive. It's pathetic.
The full dialogue is insane and I wish Youtube offered a better clip. This scene is so intense because Susanna is giving Lisa her first real dose of reality and we finally see Lisa breakdown.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know that technically Pretty Baby is fucked up. She's, like, eleven and married to this much older man who rescued her from the whorehouse. I know I shouldn't be rooting for this movie but this kills me. Belloque is so in love with Violet and wants to keep her all to himself but in the end, he realizes that she deserves a better life. One that he could never give her. So, he lets her go.
I'm not crying, YOU'RE CRYING.
FUCKIN' TEARS. ALL DAY, EVERY DAY. I can't ever get through this ending scene without crying. It's impossible.
What about you guys? What movies make you bawl like a baby? TELL ME. I'm in one of those moods where I want to watch sad things and cry for some odd reason.
