The clip Life is Stranger Than Fiction from Swordfish (2001) with John Travolta Fast-forward to today. Present time, same situation. How quickly would the media make a frenzy? ln hours. It would be the biggest story from Boston to Budapest. Ten hostages die. Twenty, thirty. Relentless. Bam, bim. One after another. All on hi-def, computer-enhanced. You can almost taste the brain matter. All for what? A bus, a plane? A couple million dollars that's federally insured? I don't think so, but just a thought. I mean, it's not within the realm of conventional cinema, but what if? -There's a problem with that movie. -Really? -It wouldn't work. -How come? -Audiences love happy endings. -Pacino escapes with the money. Boyfriend gets a sex change. Live happily ever after. -No? -No. Homophobia. Bad guy can't win. It's a morality tale. One way or the other, he's gotta go down. Well, life is stranger than fiction sometimes. You know, guys, I gotta go. Gotta jet. Thanks for the coffee.
