From the court scene in “The Boondock Saints”

It’s REALLY interesting to me how just by removing a few words, the meaning of an entire scene can change. Most of these sentences are fragmented and make little sense, which is interesting considering that it’s a monologue (well, a duo-logue) but two brothers about to shoot a man because they believe God told them to. They might believe they’re working in some perfect clarity, but they might be perceived as fragmented and unintelligible and even crazy, not able to be understood or reasoned with, reckoned with. But yet, some of these sentences make sense and are actually at odds with what was originally said. I’ve italicized them (emphasis mine).
