Fracture is easily one of the best movies I have ever seen! I haven't seen those many movies, but of all I have, this one surely tops the list.

Here are my favourite dialogue from the movie:

Judge Gardner: "You know what nobody understands about certain kinds of low pay public service work, every now and then you get put a fucking stake in a bad guys heart. I'm not supposed to talk about that when I visit third grade classes for career day and it doesn't get you very far in the country club locker room, but its hard to beat when you actually get to do it."

Ted Crawford: "I used to candle eggs at his farm. Do you know what that is? You hold an egg up to the light of a candle and you look for imperfections. The first time I did it he told me to put all the eggs that were cracked or flawed into a bucket for the bakery. And he came back an hour later, and there were 300 eggs in the bakery bucket. He asked me what the hell I was doing. I found a flaw in every single one of them - you know, thin places in the shell; fine, hairline cracks. You look closely enough, you'll find that everything has a weak spot where it can break, sooner or later."

Willy Beachum: It happens right? People wake up, it's not impossible.
Nurse: What're you gonna do, keep asking the same question different ways so you get the answer you want?
Willy Beachum: I guess. That's what I do.
Nurse: Hmm, I knew I should've gone to law school.
