You've seen the movie, right? Kinda fun, wasn't it? You do know there is a reason why we tell such stories, right? What I mean is, it isn't just for entertainment. Right? I mean, there is that, sure. Of course. But there is more to it than that. Just like with the Narcocorridos and their music. Some of it is just entertainment, some of it is braggin rights, but there is a part of it that is very socially and culturally important. It tells people where they are, and how their culture is shaped, and why things happen in some of the ways that they do.
Let me see if I may explain:
Keyser Söze - killed his whole family - all because of his position in the underworld of crime, and the affront to his position that some other men presented. What was Keyser Söze thinking you may ask . . .
He wasn't thinking is my response. He was operating on the basis of the rules within which he lived. That was what he had to do to stay on top. What he did not know was that he had been set up, and we don't see this in the movie, but it can be no other way. Verbal Kint set him up, then killed him, stashed the body, and took his passport. Ever after when Verbal wants to really play the bad guy, he pretends that Keyser Söze did it.
That Verbal Kint is really one sick bastard.
Ever wonder why they spelled his last name with an i instead of an e? Because then we would suspect they really meant to say Verbal was Clark Kent's little brother, and that just simply would not do.
So anywayz . . . here's the important part of the lesson:
one of you fukers is wearing Keyser Söze's t-shirt.
I think Verbal's gonna want that back.
