Watch a Supercut of Enraged Movie Characters Flipping Tables


I’m not sure how often people actually do it in real life, but in the movies, there are few better ways to voice your fury at any given moment than to overturn a table. (The more objects atop said table prior to flipping, the better.)

Video editor Roman Holiday put together this compilation of some of cinema’s best table-flipping moments, from Raging Bull and Fantastic Mr. Fox to Citizen Kane, setting it to Bizet’s Carmen overture. You can see the full list of movies on Vimeo.
