Roy’s Taxi

Richard Linklater: See, so say I have a dream some night that I’m with some strange woman I’ve never met, or I’m living at some place I’ve never seen before… that’s just a momentary glimpse into this other reality that was all created back at the bus station. And then I could have a dream from that reality into this one, that like this is my dream that reality. ‘Course that’s kind of like that dream I just had on the bus… the whole cycle type of thing. Man, shit, I should have stayed at the bus station…

Old Man: When young, we mourn for one woman… as we grow old, for women in general. The tragedy of life is that man is never free yet strives for what he can never be. The thing most feared in secret always happens. My life, my loves, where are they now? But the more the pain grows, the more this instinct for life somehow asserts itself. The necessary beauty in life is in giving yourself to it completely. Only later will it clarify itself and become coherent.

Slacker, 1991, written and directed by Richard Linklater

  1. The goldfish wakes up in another bowl, the tidal wave pushes through to a different stop. Borghes dreaming with Bowles on the ‘B’ shelf. You’re dreaming a dream for later, for me.
