Quotes

Ivan Locke: What the fuck are you looking at? Laughing, aren't you? Laughing at my predicament! Familiar predicament to a man like you, isn't it dad? There he is, look! Like father, like son! There's the man I made. What is it they say,"the apple doesn't fall far from the tree"? Well, that's where you're wrong! Listen to me, you fucking piece of worthless shit: I want you to watch. Do you know, infact, I would like to take a fucking shovel and dig you up out of the fucking ground and make you watch me ...

A man among men
13 July 2014 | by breytieSee all my reviews

Here I am, giving lectures to fathers about maintaining the different relationships in their lives. But alas!, how does one demonstrate the ideal, even if you might know such a person?

In comes this film Locke, demonstrating integrity, responsibility, caring, loyalty, firmness, perseverance, plus some more good things about being a man among men. Forget about Hercules, Braveheart and so many attractive and well muscled heroes. Here is a man who knows how to be alone, how to overcome rejection, how to lead colleagues, how to embrace his children,how to accept his wife as a person even when she acts unfairly, how to be fearlessly honest.

And yet he is not some miracle. He gets extremely frustrated an angry, but he can allow it to happen without picking on someone else.

What a movie!!
