A Few Good Men (1992) – “You Can’t Handle The Truth!”
Independence Day (1996) – “We Will Not Go Quietly Into the Night!”
A stunning performance by Jack Nicholson that won him an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. Playing dickhead Colonel, Nicholson is absorbed in the role completely, explaining quite to Lt. Daniel Kaffee (Tom Cruise) just how hard choices can be when they are made under difficult circumstances. For a man in his position, the Colonel doesn’t give a shit what the consequences are and what they entail exactly. Rarely has a role been so vividly portrayed on the big screen — or a line from the film been repeated so many timess offscreen.
