Hannah and Her Sisters (1986) Poster

Max von Sydow: Frederick



  • [Frederick is talking about TV] 

    Frederick : You see the whole culture. Nazis, deodorant salesmen, wrestlers, beauty contests, a talk show. Can you imagine the level of a mind that watches wrestling? But the worst are the fundamentalist preachers. Third grade con men telling the poor suckers that watch them that they speak with Jesus, and to please send in money. Money, money, money! If Jesus came back and saw what's going on in his name, he'd never stop throwing up.

  • Frederick : You missed a very dull TV show on Auschwitz. More gruesome film clips, and more puzzled intellectuals declaring their mystification over the systematic murder of millions. The reason they can never answer the question "How could it possibly happen?" is that it's the wrong question. Given what people are, the question is "Why doesn't it happen more often?"

  • Frederick : I'm not interested in what your interior decorator thinks, okay?

    Dusty : I can't commit to anything without consulting her first. That's what I have her for, okay?

    Frederick : This is degrading. You don't buy paintings to blend in with the sofa.

    Dusty : It's not a sofa - it's an ottoman!
