Reminiscence got released yesterday on HBO max. This Hugh Jackman starring film is a dystopian sci-fiction noir diving into the philosophical conversation. The dialogues used in the film get the audience into a moment of introspection.

Here are the top dialogues recited by the main protagonist that made us pause and think for a minute or two.

“No such thing as a happy ending. All endings are sad. Especially if the story was happy.”

“The past can haunt a man. That’s what they say. That the past is just a series of moments. Each one is perfect. Complete. A bead on the necklace of time. The past doesn’t haunt us. Wouldn’t even recognize us. If there are ghosts to be found, it’s us who haunt the past.”

“You’re going on a journey. A journey through memory. Your destination? A place and time you’ve been before. To reach it, all you have to do is follow my voice.”

“It used to be you couldn’t go back again. But time is no longer a one-way stream. Memory is the boat that sails against its current. And I’m the oarsman. When the waters rose, and war broke out, there wasn’t a lot to look forward to, so people began looking back. The tank started as an interrogation tool, and since then nostalgia’s become a way of life. But for Watts and me, it’s a living.”

“You’re going on a journey. A journey through memory. Your destination? A place and time you’ve been before. To reach it, all you have to do is follow my voice.”

“Truth is, nothing is more addictive than the past. Who wouldn’t want to be reunited with a loved one? Or relive the most meaningful moments of their life? But memories, even good ones, have a voracious appetite. If you’re not careful, they consume you.”

“Memories are like perfumes, better in small doses.”

The complimentary conversation of Watts and Nick was worth contemplating.

Watts: You’re late.
Nick Bannister: “Late” is a construct of linear time. We don’t deal in that.
Watts: And yet, we charge by the hour.

Nick Bannister: Forgotten things can always be fished up and dusted off. But the lost, those things people never really took much notice of, till they were gone. They’re defined by their absence.
Watts: You can’t remember something that never made an impression.

The film is streaming on HBO max.
