MORE Powerful Movie Scenes With Minimal Dialogue
As Norma Desmond once said, "We didn't need dialogue. We had faces." Though she may have meant this in a different context, we understood the subtext - sometimes, the most powerful moments in a film can be conceived without any dialogue at all. We often associate powerful movie scenes with some intense action or an intense exchange of words. However, these scenes had little to no dialogue and still resonated with us for being as iconic as they were silent. By the end, you may have felt emotionally drained or inexplicably moved, but the catch is that such was achieved without the primary usage of dialogue. So which of these powerful movie scenes, that had little to no dialogue, resonated with you the most? (Please note: TV shows, silent movies or scenes that are montages, like the introduction to Up (2009), though beloved by many, will be excluded from this list.) After voting, SPOILER: you may convey your thoughts here. Also vote for: Powerful Movie Scenes With Minimal Dialogue

Or should I say "We'll always have 'Casablanca (1942)'", there were so many beginnings of a beautiful introduction paying tribute to the most quotable movie of all-time. And to call it 'quotable' is an understatement. Indeed, when it comes to legendary screenplays, the film is certainly among the usual suspects, still holding the record of the most represented movie in the American Film Institute's Top 100 Quotes with six entries and four of featured in the last ten minutes, perhaps the most parodied and "known-before-actually-watching-the-film" moment. So, celebrating the three-quarter century of the legendary classic, which of these Casablanca quotes is your favorite? After voting, discuss the list here, Sam.
