Jefe: "Do you know the words of [the poet] Machado? [in Spanish] 'Wanderer, there is no road, the road is made by walking.' Lovely poet." ... "When it comes to grief, the normal rules of exchange do not apply, because grief transcends value. A man would give entire nations to lift grief off his heart. And yet, you cannot buy anything with grief. Because grief is worthless." ... “You are the world you have created. And when you cease to exist, that world you have created will also cease to exist.”
Positive reviews from Wikipedia: Richard Roeper: "Director Ridley Scott and screenwriter Cormac McCarthy have fashioned a... literate and richly textured tale... Shakespearean..." /// Danny Leigh of the BBC: "The real star is the script. It's like a Cormac McCarthy audiobook with visuals by Ridley Scott. It's black as night, engrossing and masterful." He also acclaimed the performances, particularly Diaz's /// Scott Foundas, chief film critic for Variety, wrote a defense of the film titled "Why The Counselor Is One of Ridley Scott's Best Films"... Foundas writes, "[the film] is bold and thrilling in ways that mainstream American movies rarely are, and its rejection suggests what little appetite there is for real daring at the multiplex nowadays."
Lot'sa of great quotes from IMDb:
Reiner: Men are attracted to flawed women too of course, but their illusion is that they can fix them. They just want to be entertained. The truth about women is that you can do anything to them except bore them.
Reiner: Are you really that cold?
Malkina: The truth has no temperature.
Westray: Well, I'm perfectly willing to believe you had nothing to do with this but I'm not the party you have to convince.
Counselor: Convince of what, for Christ sake?
Westray: That this is some sort of coincidence. Because they don't really believe in coincidences. They've heard of them. They've just never seen one.
“The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.” -Winston Churchill
