The first decade of the 21st century provided a number of thought-provoking films. The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter franchises encouraged people to find meaning beyond the moment, as have a growing number of independent films. The ten Oscar winning movies of the 00's have focused on the individual’s struggle to find a place within an otherwise occupied world. Here are the wisest quotes from the 'naughts' Best Pictures.
1) “In L.A., nobody touches you. We're always behind this metal and glass. I think
we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel
Crash (2005) – Graham Waters (Don Cheadle)
2) “It's called ‘life’, John. Activities available, just add meaning.”
A Beautiful Mind (2001) – Alicia Nash (Jennifer Connelly)
3) “What we do in life echoes in eternity.”
Gladiator (2000) – Maximus (Russell Crowe)
4) “You can like the life you're living, you can live the life you like.”
Chicago (2002) – Roxie Hart (Renee Zellweger)
5) “I don't want to be a product of my environment, I want my environment to be a
product of me.”
The Departed (2006) – Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson)
