影片对白

Mills: I don't know, man. I'd say he's whacked enough.

 

Somerset: Doesn't fit. He doesn't want us to help him stop.

Mills: Who knows? Someboby freaks out there, doing their little evil deeds they don't want to do. "Voices made me do it. My dog made me do it.” "Jodie Foster told me to do it."

Man: You know, I've seen this nearly take three days to make a match so maybe you guys want to cross your fingers somewhere else.

Somerset: You meant what you said to Mrs. Gould about catching this guy?

Mills: Yeah.

Somerset: I wish I still thought the way you do.

Mills: Why don't you tell me what the hell it is you think we're doing?

Somerset: Picking up the pieces. We're collecting all the evidence, taking all the pictures and samples, writing everything down, noting the time things happen.

Mills: That's all?

Somerset: That's all. Putting everything into neat little piles and filing it away on the off chance it will ever be needed in the courtroom. Picking up diamonds on a deserted island, saving them in case we get rescued.

Mills: Bullshit.

Somerset: Even the most promising clues usually only lead to others. So many corpses roll away unrevenged.

Mills: Don't try to tell me you didn't get that rush tonight. I saw you. We're getting somewhere.

文化面面观

好莱坞女星典范 Jodie Foster

她四度赢得奥斯卡提名,两度获奖,还获得过2座金球奖,3座英国学院奖以及1座演员公会奖。同时,她还是导演、制片人,所制作、主演的影片也都大获好评。称之为“女星典范”,决不为过。

Alicia Christian Foster (born November 19 1962), better known as Jodie Foster, is a two-time Academy Award-winning American actress, director, and producer. She has also won two Golden Globes, 3 BAFTA awards and a Screen Actors Guild Award, making her one of the few select actors to have won all four major motion picture acting awards (Oscars, Golden Globes, SAG, and BAFTA awards).

After appearing as a child in several commercials, Foster won her first role in the 1970 TV movie Menace on the Mountain, followed by several Disney productions. Foster did not experience her breakout role until 1976, when she received moderate recognition but great acclaim for her role as a pre-teenage prostitute in Taxi Driver, receiving an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. In the early 1980s she was famous for being the object of obsession of John Hinckley, Jr. In 1981 Hinckley shot President Ronald Reagan with a .22 caliber pistol, in an attempt to win Foster's favor. (The shooting echoed events in

Foster's 1976 movie Taxi Driver, directed by Martin Scorsese.) Having been on TV and in films since she was a toddler, Foster took time off from acting to enroll in Yale, and she graduated in 1985 with a degree in English Literature. She won an Oscar for Best Actress in 1988, for playing a rape victim in The Accused. In 1991, she starred in The Silence of the Lambs as Clarice Starling, a gifted FBI Agent investigating a serial killer. For this performance she received international acclaim and another Oscar for Best Actress. Her films and roles have spanned a wide variety of genres, including thrillers, crime, romance, comedy, children's movies, and science fiction. She also has appeared in Bugsy Malone (1976), Little Man Tate (1991, her directorial debut), Sommersby (1993, with Richard Gere), Contact (1997, with Matthew McConaughey), Anna and the King (1999, with Chow Yun-Fat), The Panic Room (2002) and Spike Lee's Inside Man (2006, with Clive Owen).
