Little Ashes (2008)
Robert Pattinson: Salvador Dalí
Salvador Dalí : If I'm going to be anything more than average, if anyone's going to remember me, then I need to go further in everything: in art, in life, in everything they think is real: morality, immorality, good, bad, I, we, have to smash that to pieces, we have to go beyond that, we have to be brave. no limit.
Profesor de Arte : You have 20 minutes to deliver an oral critique of Raphael. You may begin... Mr. Dalí?
Salvador Dalí : Gentlemen... I returned from Paris with a conclusion that the entire amount of real, artistic knowledge contained within this panel of professors is not equal to one half of this. This, my fingernail. Not one half, gentlemen. And I've been insulting myself by letting your shruddy practices, your pathetic, outdated theories and questionable characters shit on my genius. And I hope with all my heart that you'll realize I'm right and give up this foolishness and go back to the pigsties and the haystacks, where you might be of some real use.
Salvador Dalí : From this point on, my real life begins.
Federico García Lorca : Your real life? And what about this life? You can't just abandon everything!
Salvador Dalí : Abandon what? Sitting in an art room all day, going out of my mind with boredom? Drinking myself into a stupor every night? I'm so sick of it!
Federico García Lorca : How can you say that? Your painting's never been better. This isn't you, Salvador. What's happened to you?
Salvador Dalí : Federico, why can't you just be happy for me?
