Matthew y Theo discuten sobre la revolución de Mao Tse Tung en The Dreamers, de Bernardo Bertolucci.
Theo: -Think of Mao as a great director making a movie with a cast of millions. All those millions of Red Guards marching together into the future with the Little Red Book in their hands. Books, not guns. Culture, not violence. Can’t you see what a beautiful epic movie that would make?
Matthew: -I guess, but… It’s easy to say books not guns. But it’s not true. It’s not ‘books’. It’s ‘book’, a book. Just one book.
Theo: -Shut up. You sound just like my father.
Matthew: -No, listen to me. The Red Guards that you admire, they all carry the same book, they all sing the same songs, they all parrot the same slogans. In this big epic movie… everybody is an extra.
