The Facts of Life According to the Movie Layer Cake

YouTube - The Facts of Life (Layer Cake Speech)

Are you enjoying this?

No. On the contrary. Take it as a compliment. You're a bright young man. This monkey business is in your blood,
under your skin. You're not getting out, you're just
getting in. I've every faith in you. One day, it will be you sitting here telling some young Turk the facts of life.

And they are, Mr Temple?

You're born, you take shit. Get out in the world, you take more shit. Climb a little higher, you take less shit. Until one day, you're up in the rarefied atmosphere, and you've forgotten what shit
even looks like. Welcome to the layer cake, son.

Longer clip version.

Since the early aughts before Daniel Craig was to become James Bond, I have enjoyed the movie Layer Cake. It's a part of my movie rotation that I watch while I exercise in the basement. I have watched the movie many, many times.

The art of good business is being a good middleman, putting people together.
