Sleepers (1996)
“I'm gonna prosecute John and Tommy in an open court (…) I'm not takin' this case to win. I'm takin' this case to lose (…) it's payback time (…) You read The Count of Monte Cristo lately? (…) See, I read a little bit of it every night. I read words like "revenge." "Sweet, lasting revenge." Payback time. It's our time (…) I'm sayin' it's time for all of us to get a taste. I'm sayin' it's time to put an end to this.”

"My name is Lieutenant Aldo Raine. And I'm putting together a special team, and I need me eight soldiers. Eight Jewish American soldiers. Now, you all might've heard rumors about the armada happening soon. Well, we'll be leaving a little earlier. We're going to be dropped into France dressed as civilians. Once we're in enemy territory, as a bushwhacking guerrilla army, we're going to be doing one thing and one thing only. Killing Nazis. I don't know about you all, but I sure as hell didn't come down from the goddamn Smoky Mountains, cross 5, 000 miles of water, fight my way through half of Sicily and jump out of a fucking airplane to teach the Nazis lessons in humanity. Nazi ain't got no humanity. They're the foot soldiers of a
Jew-hating, mass-murdering maniac and they need to be destroyed. That's why any and every son of a bitch we find wearing a Nazi uniform, they're going to die."



"Marcel, burn it down (...) My name is Shosanna Dreyfus, and this is the face of Jewish vengeance."

"In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition! The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous"

"- You've fallen right into my trap.
-You can't trap justice. It's an idea, a belief.
- Even the most heartfelt belief, can be corroded over time.
- Justice is a noncorrosive metal.
- But metals can be melted by the heat of 're-vange'.
- It's 'revenge' and it's best served cold.
- But it can be easily reheated, in the microwave of evil."

„Wildly killing people you don't give a shit about... but you won't get the bastards that killed my whole family? - Revenge is not good once you're done. Believe. It's better to forget. - Forget? After I've seen the outline of my brother's body on the floor... you expect me to forget? I want to kill those sons of bitches. Blow their fucking heads off. - Nothing's the same after you've killed someone. Your life is changed forever. You have to sleep with one eye open for the rest of your life. - I don't give a shit about sleeping, Leon. I want love... or death. That's it. I want death.”

Dogville (2003)
"If she had acted like them, she could not have defenced a single one of her actions and could not have condemned them harshly enough. It was as if her sorrow and pain finally assumed their rightful place. No, what they had done was not good enough. And if one had the power to put it to rights, it was one's duty to do so, for the sake of the other towns, for the sake of humanity, and not least, for the sake of the human being that was Grace herself. […] That's what I wanna use the power for, if you don't mind. I wanna make this world a little better. […] If there is any town in this world would be better without, this is it. Shoot them and burn down the town. […] There is a family with kids... do the kids first and make the mother watch. Tell her you will stop if she can hold back her tears. I owe her that.”

“'Sic vis pacem para bellum. ' Latin. The boot camp sergeant made us recite it like a prayer... 'Sic vis pacem para bellum'... 'lf you want peace, prepare for war. "(…) Frank Castle is dead. He died with his family (…) In certain extreme situations, the law is inadequate. In order to shame its inadequacy, it is necessary to act outside the law, to pursue... natural justice. This is not vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive, it's an emotional response. No, not vengeance... punishment."

“As I lay in the back of Buck's truck, trying to will my limbs out of entropy... Wiggle your big toe. I could see the faces of the cunts who did this to me. And the dicks responsible. Members all of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad. When fortune smiles on something as violent and ugly as revenge, It seems proof like no other that not only does God exist, you're doing his will.”

“Revenge is never a straight line. It's a forest. And like a forest it's easy to lose your way... to get lost... to forget where you came in. That woman deserves her revenge. And we deserve to die. She must suffer to her last breath.”

“Looked dead, didn't I? Well, l wasn't. But it wasn't from lack of trying, l can tell you that. Actually, Bill's last bullet put me in a coma - a coma l was to lie in for four years. When l woke up, l went on what the movie advertisements refer to as ''a roaring rampage of revenge.'' l roared, and l rampaged, and l got bloody satisfaction. l've killed a hell of a lot of people to get to this point, but l've only one more. The last one. The one l'm driving to right now. The only one left. And when l arrive at my destination, l am gonna kill Bill.”

Not on how to care for 'em, or love 'em, or pet 'em. No! Three million entries on how to exterminate them! The humans came and destroyed our home... destroyed our home. - Son, if you ever get the chance to bring mankind to its knees... do it. They showed us no mercy, Darwin.
