The best cinematic speeches ever

The title is self explanatory. You can also add monologues if you'd like.

One of my absolute favourite is Bane's speech from the time he blew open the walls of Blackgate prison in the movie The Dark Knight Rises.

It had absolutely everything.
It was intense.
It was well articulated. The pauses were perfect. The emphasis on words was immaculate.
The tone was ever changing as the content of the speech changed.
I don't really believe that his voice modulation can be rightfully praised with words from my vocabulary.

His hand gestures were authoritative and power oozed through his posture.
And to top all that he had that amazing voice which he somehow managed to pull off without any tech.
The whole scene was a masterpiece.


PS: This is only for cinematic speeches and monologues and not real life speeches.
Real bores me. Give me reel anytime.

This was from the movie Gandhi.
It is so good that our teacher made us listen to it in our speaking skills class.
And we were made to write a report on why this is the perfect template of how to give a speech.

I said that this was not about real life speeches but I can't really keep this speech out when talking about great speeches.
This is one of the greatest ever for sure.
Make sure to watch the video.
It is eye opening in a way.

Most won't understand it.
See if you can find English subs.
But this is an epic monologue.
The guy in the video is playing the role of the (in)famous story writer named Saddat Hassan Manto who lived most of his life in British India and his last few years in Independent Pakistan where his stories were accused of being pornographic and he had to stand on trial many times.

This monologue shows him defending his literature in front of a class.
Some of the most epic quotes of his mentioned in the monologue are:-
1) My stories is the mirror in which the society can see it self. If the society has a problem with its face then how is that a fault of the mirror.
2) If you can't bear my stories then it stands to reason that the whole society is unbearable itself.

Pardon my poor translation but then again you wouldn't know how bad I did:p.
