Literal goosebumps. IIRC that speech was written in like 10 mins just before the scene.

level 2

Is it possible not to get goosebumps when that scene happens?

level 3

Maybe if you're a commie.

Funny how it's the red states supporting Russia's boy now.

i don't anymore. i used to, but then i pulled a hitch in the military(9/11 happened during my enlistment) and i turned cynical.

level 3

I got goosebumps just reading the comment

level 2

Wasn't actually written right before the scene, but it was written in about 5 minutes and didn't get changed when they shot it.

Check out this super cool oral history of the speech

level 3

Great article, thanks for posting.

I though this was a mock speech they had prepared from the get go but planned to have proper one written up by the time they'd film this scene. Instead they forgot and Pullman delivered the placeholder speech so well that they decided to keep it.

level 2

It really ties the film together

Literal goosebumps

Yep, even just reading it there, I can hear Pullman's voice clearly in my head. Goosebumps.
