Gertrude Stein Midnight in Paris

We all fear death and question our place in the universe. The artist’s job is not to succumb to despair, but to find an antidote for the emptiness of existence.

Gertrude Stein (Kathy Bates) in the charming romantic comedy fantasy Midnight in Paris (2011). Written and directed by Woody Allen, it tells of a writer who at midnight is able to travel back in time to the 1920s.

Charles Foster Kane

I don’t think there’s one word that can describe a man’s life.

Charles Foster Kane (Orson Welles) in the cinematic masterpiece Citizen Kane (1941). Though largely ignored at the Academy Awards for political reasons, the film thrust it’s writer/director/leading star into the spotlight and has long been considered one of the greatest films ever made.
