Trying to remeber what eugene says to vincent before he
kills himself.Cant find it anywhere.
Post favorite lines and such.
Simply one of the best films ever made. Ethan Hawke is amazing as usual.
I have a great deal of admiration for this thoughtful sci-fi flick. The de-gene-erate Vincent originally worked as a janitor. But against such great odds; contrary to the beliefs held by all those he knew and loved that he would never amount to anything of worth, he fooled them all into thinking he was a valid, elite, genetically superior member of society.
Of course, what makes Vincent’s feat such a remarkable one is that we as viewers understand that those who end up working in menial, janitorial positions, are generally mental and physical degenerates with little purpose in life; quietly and sullenly going about their empty days cleaning up after others; lacking the intellect and the strength of will to change their fate; condemned to a life without meaning, without joy, without hope, without love.
>literally every time i make this post, within 5 minutes there are various responces, always similarly worded, about how i missed the point of the movie, or how wrong i am.
seriously jani, you need to fucking kill yourself. you are literally a disgrace to your family, and furthermore, to the entirety of human existence.

You just perfectly described someone does it for free
Friendly reminder that Rand Paul plagiarized the Wikipedia article for Gattaca:
I feel it would have worked better if they hadn't picked one of the few careers where health and genetic testing makes sense. Of course NASA only wants to send healthy people to space, if they die they just wasted billions.
It should have been a career where it shouldn't matter, in order to showcase how stupid the discrimation is.
My English is terrible, sorry.
The outer space is an environment where mankind shouldn't be, because we can't naturally survive there. Vincent destination, Titan, isn't friendly either.
Vincent should have died like 5 years before he joined Gattaca, but he lived, against all odds. Gattaca was to Vincent what the outer space is to mankind.
This. Even in today's non-genetic ubermensh super-babies world, they wouldn't let someone with a heart condition that can kill you at any moment on a spaceship.
I get the "follow your dreams" message, but surely he could have a different dream. Like he wanted to join the Army, or be a firefighter or something
