Tusk (2014) Poster


Michael Parks: Howard Howe



  • Wallace Bryton : [fools around with an ivory carving]  A walrus saved your life?

    Howard Howe : The walrus is far more evolved than any man I've ever known. Present company included.

    Wallace Bryton : Thank you!

    Howard Howe : [poker face]  You're welcome.

  • Howard Howe : Are you really mourning your loss of humanity? I don't understand. Who in the hell would want to be human? God Almighty... In all of my travels, I've only ever known a human to be an ocean of shit.

  • [drugs Wallace] 

    Howard Howe : There, there. It'll be all right, Mr Tusk.

  • Howard Howe : I'm so very tired Mr. Tusk, battered by a life of cruel fate and poor decisions and the terrible consequences of both.

  • Howard Howe : Hello. I am an old man who has enjoyed a long and storied life. And after eons of oceanic adventure, I know I do not wish to spend my remaining years alone while I have some stories to share...

  • Howard Howe : You know I was thinking, The melancholy of losing a limb must be akin to mourning a close friend that you too often took for granted.

  • Howard Howe : To solve a riddle older than the Sphinx. To answer the question which has plagued us since we first crawled from this Earth and stood erect in the sun. Is man, indeed, a walrus at heart?

  • Howard Howe : Well I became acquainted with a walrus when I was lost at sea.

  • Howard Howe : You are a kitchen witch of only good fortune.

  • Howard Howe : Always do sober what you'd do drunk. It will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

  • Howard Howe : Your life as you knew it is over, Mr. Bryton. So if you wish to continue living, you will be a walrus, or you'll be nothing at all.

  • Howard Howe : We survive at all costs. Only to butcher again. And again. Until we ourselves are at last butchered in turn.

  • Howard Howe : I see you have an eye for the unfamiliar and the curiosity of a cat.

  • Howard Howe : Be not vexed or heavy of heart, Mr. Bryton. We two are embarking on an expedition not unlike that of the doomed Anastasia. Their mistake was they look for the monsters out there. They shouldn't have left the dock. The beast has always lied within.

  • Howard Howe : [hearing ringing cell phone]  Well, someone's looking for Wallace... It must be nice to know that somebody cares about you that much. Just what I felt on the island with Mr. Tusk. He was the only living thing that ever had my best interests at heart. As a child, I was not cared for so much as I was... filed away, like a document. A document fed into a shredding machine and fueled by the blood of the innocent.
