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.
