The Agony and the Ecstasy (1965)
Pope Julius II: When will you make an end?Michelangelo: When I am finished!Contessina de Medici: Your question insults us both!Pope Julius II: You dare to dicker with your pontiff?Pope Julius II: What do you think we should do here? Bramante wants to pull it down. He likes pulling things down! No, I want to do something less destructive.Raphael: For what is an artist in this world but a servant, a lackey for the rich and powerful? Before we even begin to work, to feed this craving of ours, we must find a patron, a rich man of affairs, or a merchant, or a prince or… a Pope. We must bow, fawn, kiss hands to be able to do the things we must do or die.[Raphael chuckles]Raphael: We are harlots always peddling beauty at the doorsteps of the mighty.Michelangelo: If it comes to that, I won’t be an artist.Raphael: [Raphael scoffs at Michelangelo’s remark] You’ll always be an artist. You have no choice.
