Collateral (2004)

Collateral って映画を見たことがある人も多いと思う。あのTom Cruise (かっこ良すぎる)が銀髪の殺し屋(Vincent)になったことで話題になった映画だ。タクシーの中でのシーンが多くて流れが遅いのと、Tomが悪役ということでどうしてもJamie Foxx(Max)に感情移入させるような取り方になっているせいで正直最高の映画というわけではない。Tomさえかっこ良けりゃ細かいことはいいんだけどね。

その中でとても印象的なシーンがある。そのシーンでのTom (Vincent)のセリフが好きで好きでしょうがない。抜粋を下に載せる。contextなしだとさすがにわかりにくいところもあると思うけど、まあ簡単に言うと、Max(シータクの運ちゃん)はいつかリムジンの会社をやりたいという夢がある。でももう何年も雇われのタクシー運転手をしてる。そんなMaxにVincentがキツい一言。

Vincent : Get with it. Millions of galaxies of hundreds of millions of stars, in a speck on one in a blink. That's us, lost in space. The cop, you, me... Who notices? Look in the mirror. Paper towels, clean cab. Limo company some day. How much you got saved?
Max: That ain't any of your business.
Vincent: Someday? Someday my dream will come? One night you will wake up and discover it never happened. It's all turned around on you. It never will. Suddenly you are old. Didn't happen, and it never will, because you were never going to do it anyway. You'll push it into memory and then zone out in your barco lounger, being hypnotized by daytime TV for the rest of your life. Don't you talk to me about murder. All it ever took was a down payment on a Lincoln town car. That girl, you can't even call that girl. What the fuck are you still doing driving a cab? 


First things first!
