Overlooked performances, great quotes and show-stopping scenes that helped define this year's cinema

Overlooked performances, great quotes and show-stopping scenes that helped define this year's cinema

As I take copious notes while watching the movies I'm going to review, I inevitably accumulate a loose smattering of random scribbles about this performance and that hilarious one-liner from picture after picture, all year long.

Occasionally such notices make it into my reviews. More often they end up as scraps I discard after failing to find room for them before the final "Save" on my computer.

Then I stew over not being able to share them with readers. What if examples of just how funny the dialogue is would make one more person see "O Brother, Where Art Thou," the best picture of the year?

So by way of resolution, here's an affectionate retrospective of some of the most memorable moments, best quotes and unsung performances of the movies of 2000 -- called the Forget-Me-Nots:

Delicious dialogue

"You're nothing but a malcontent who knows how to spell."
 -- the Abbe Coulmier (Joaquin Phoenix) to the Marquis De Sade (Geoffrey Rush) in "Quills"

"Technique is nothing more than failed style"
 -- Stephen Dorff as the deranged terrorist/director "Cecil B. Demented"
