Tagline for the Movie of My Life

One of those common questions people like to toy with is, 'In the movie of your life, who would play you?' Since Brad will never return my phone calls, I thought I'd get a little more esoteric. What would the movie of my life include? Which scenes would end up most poignant, and then what would the underlying message of such a movie end up? Which leads me to a better exercise.

Every movie has a tagline, used in promoting it, to sum up what the movie promises. Many of these taglines become catch-phrases themselves and can outlive the movie in fame, such as, "Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water;" or "Sometimes when you reach for a dream, you have to leave something behind." So i started to think, what would the tagline be for the movie of my life? I've been narrowing it down.

"Sometimes the journey is more interesting than the results. Sometimes neither does much."
"Did you ever get the feeling you weren't being watched?"
"Truth. Beauty. Life. Love. Or this..."
"Take only photographs. Leave no evidence."
"All roads lead somewhere. This one is more like a circular driveway."
"So many men, so little interest."
"One man. One life. One trauma after another."
"You'll laugh. You'll cry. It's better than CATS."
"Today is the first day of the rest of your pain."
"It may be lonely at the top, but it's not so great down here either."
