The best dramatic monologues in cinema can be found within every genre. However, all of these monologues from movies share several of the same characteristics: they are all well-acted, extremely moving, and totally make the movie. Imagine Glengarry Glen Ross without Alec Baldwin’s sales incentive monologue, “coffee’s for closers,” or Jack Nicholson’s stern warning monologue, “you can’t handle the truth” in A Few Good Men. Here are 22 of the best dramatic movie monologues ever.

Many of these speeches are great for acting auditions. Since you only get one shot to make a good impression, don’t waste your chance on a movie monologue that leaves your audience bored and unimpressed. If well-executed, any of these famous dramatic monologues are certain to grab a casting agent’s attention.

Be an inspiration like Fortune from Rudy, a greedy business mogul like Gordon Gekko from Wall Street, or a believer that people will come to a cornfield in the middle of Iowa in Field of Dreams. Which moving speeches do you love the most? Let us know by voting thumbs up or thumbs down in the list below.
