Truman Capote's writing is nothing less than sublime, with each sentence bringing new layers to a never ending undertone of idealistic individualism, a permanent internal class struggle where values are mixed with desires and the dreams we hold so dear are not always what they seem to be, or at least what we want them to be.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

 

This is the movie that gave "classic movie" the class part. It is the epitome of loveable charming old school romantic comedy. The fact it is not a romantic comedy is what really makes it a great film.

Breakfast at tiffany's is one of those deep statements that manage not to be too deep, or at least not annoying in its 'deepness' like some films tend to be. It is a philosophical quarry of this life and society while still maintaining a very go-lightly spirit, a very human funny perspective.

   
  You could always tell what kind of a person a man thinks you are by the earrings he gives you. I must say, the mind reels"
   
 
   
  Ahh... Do I detect a look of disapproval in your eye? Tough beans buddy, 'cause that's the way it's gonna be."

  Holly: Thursday! It can't be! It's too gruesome!
  Paul: What's so gruesome about Thursday?
  Holly: Nothing, except I can never remember when it's coming up."
   
  There are a lot of films telling the famous story of people looking for who they really are and what is their role in life. But they don’t have what Breakfast at Tiffanny's had, they don’t have the secret weapon known as Audrey Hepburn.
Audrey Hepburn is the mother of all cute girls, she is charm and class in a petite delightful package, and she has your heart before she even says a word, just a small smile is enough. Breakfast at Tiffany's was without doubt her greatest role, and she is as sharp as a razor, as enticing as the siren's call and as sweet as anyone you know is going to break your heart can be.
   
 
   
  We're alike, me and cat. A couple of poor nameless slobs."
   
  As you follow her through that journey of self discovery, you have no choice but to fall in love . you are no longer the spectator, you are not sitting in a cinema or in your living room, you are there in the rain looking for 'cat' with her. You can feel the water running over you, you can smell the New York street air, you can feel the cold night chilling your bones  and there is nowhere else in the world you would rather be in that moment.
   
  It's useful being top banana in the shock department!"
   
  That is all I ask from a good movie. Pull me in. include me in the experience. Make me laugh, make me cry. Is it really too much to ask? You may call me old fashioned, you may just call me old. I don’t care. Call me whatever you want but give me more masterfully crafted gems like Breakfast at Tiffany's .
   
 

You know what's wrong with you, Miss Whoever-you-are? You're chicken, you've got no guts. You're afraid to stick out your chin and say, "Okay, life's a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to eachother, because that's the only chance anybody's got for real happiness."

You call yourself a free spirit, a "wild thing," and you're terrified somebody's gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you're already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it's not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It's wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself."
