Daily Dialogue — March 28, 2018
“You know what you look like to me, with your good bag and your cheap shoes? You look like a rube. A well scrubbed, hustling rube with a little taste. Good nutrition has given you some length of bone, but you’re not more than one generation from poor white trash, are you, Agent Starling?”
— The Silence of the Lambs (1991), screenplay by Ted Tally, novel by Thomas Harris
The Daily Dialogue theme for the week: Trash Talk.
Trivia: Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster only share four scenes throughout the course of the film.
Dialogue On Dialogue: Trash talking in a psychological thriller? You bet, a monologue which goes a long way in conveying how insightful Lecter is.
