The evolving tastes of a film student in London.
In this life we have to be like everybody else – the perfect mediocrity, no better, no worse. I often thought that the gangster and the artist are the same in the eyes of the masses.

Stanley Kubrick, screenplay by Stanley Kubrick, dialogue by Jim Thompson)
