The bank job

The moment Martine Love appears on screen, I couldn't quite joggle my memory from which picture I'd seen the actress playing that part. Saffron Burrows dresses as a brunette but seems to gradually lighten her hair. I don't know if the first few scenes were darkly lit, or whether the change in hair color is intentional. The way in which Saffron speaks her lines is what ultimately gave her away, for at first I'd thought I was watching a movie with Kate Moss.

The Saffron Burrows lines most memorable to me from her other flick, Fay Grim, follow:


JULIET
(GASP)

FAY GRIM
Ah, shit.

Juliet
Don't think I'm inhuman, Fay. Some dirty work needs to be done. Civilization ought to thank those of us who are willing to do it.

FAY GRIM
Why is it when someone starts talking about civilization, I hear the sound of machine guns?

Juliet
You American's are soft. Still, I appreciate your help.

FAY GRIM
I just don't want you to die in my hotel room. I've got to sleep in here tonight. There, it's done. Get out.

JULIET
What happened to the porter?

FAY GRIM
Huh?

Juliet
The Arab kid. You were the last to see him.

Take the name of your journal and convey the hardest word conveyable with a picture using Retrievr.com (Example: "Quest for the Hollywood Buzz" = a buzzard/vulture for buzz, or bee, a holly tree for Hollywood, but I'm stuck on Quest).

How can I convey a quest with an image? At first I try drawing a holy grail on Retrievr, but that kinda ends up being an apple as I didn't like the search results
