I just watched Snatch. And my god, it was an absolute stunner! I loved it from beginning to end and I even laughed out loud, which doesn’t happen too many times. Brad Pitt is tremendous (as usual) and Vini Jones, the former Wimbledon football player (never looked like one to me), is very good too. Actually they’re all pretty good!
And the script! Man, the script. I’m leaving it all raw by the way.
Bullet Tooth Tony: You should never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.
Bullet Tooth Tony: What?
Avi: Look in the dog.
Bullet Tooth Tony: What do you mean, “Look in the dog”?
Avi: I mean open him up.
Bullet Tooth Tony: That’s a bit strong! It’s not a fucking tin of baked beans! What do you mean “open him up”?
Brick Top: In the quiet words of the Virgin Mary… come again?
Vinny: Why are we stopped here? What’s wrong with that spot?
Tyrone: It’s too tight.
Vinny: Too tight? You could land a jumbo fucking jet in that.
[Tyrone just backed into Franky Four Fingers’ van]
Tyrone: I didn’t see it there.
Vinny: It’s a four ton truck, Tyrone. Its not as though its a bag of fucking peanuts, is it?
Tyrone: It was at a funny angle.
[All three turn and look back at the truck]
Vinny: It’s behind you Tyrone. Whenever you reverse, things come at you from behind.
Turkish: What’s happening with them sausages, Charlie?
Sausage Charlie: Five minutes, Turkish.
Turkish: It was two minutes five minutes ago.
Policeman: So, what you doin here?
Turkish: I’m taking the dog for a walk. What’s the problem?
Policeman: What’s in the car?
Turkish: Seats and a steering wheel.
[Doug sees four Jewish kids smoking]
Doug the Head: What are you doing?
Jewish Boy: [spits] It’s a free country isn’t it?
Doug the Head: Well it isn’t a free shop is it? So fuck off.
And the best of them all:
Avi: Eighty-six carats.
Avi’s Colleague: London?
Avi: Yes, London. You know: fish, chips, cup ‘o tea, bad food, worse weather, Mary fucking Poppins… LONDON.
