Edward Norton Quotes:

- Fame is very corrosive and you have to guard very strictly against it.
- All people are paradoxical. No one is easily reducible, so I like characters who have contradictory impulses or shades of ambiguity. It’s fun, and it’s fun because it’s hard.

Oh I love him! I really do 🙂 I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen The Painted Veil!
That is a great caricature of him Shafali- you captured his mimics perfectly!
Thanks:) I would say that this is one of my best caricatures so far – but the fact that it’s failed to interest many visitors reminds me of the universal fact that what we think is the best is often not perceived to be so by others…and it is this difference of opinions that makes life more interesting, because it throws up challenges:)
Glad you and I share a common interest in EN’s characters.
Thank you Ajay. I became a fan of his after I watched Primal Fear and I loved him as the Illusionist:) I haven’t watched Fight Club yet (something about the name, perhaps) – but I’ll remember your recommendation.
Prestige was awesome!
Remember the three parts of a magic act:
The Pledge, the Turn, and the Prestige!
Telling a good story too is an act of a magician:)
Nice! I like it. Fight Club was also a prominent movie in his career. I particularly liked The Illusionist though The Prestige was of similar genre and was more nuanced than The Illusionist (may be because it was Nolan’s movie.) And I can’t forget his Fight Club for it’s utter craziness 🙂
