another one of my favorite movie scenes of all time, from True Romance (1993). whenever i teach a class on writing dialogue, i show my students this scene. Tarantino’s script is so well-written that you find yourself on the edge of your seat while watching a history lesson. walken and hopper, both playing very minor roles in this movie, make the most of this little moment with truly great performances. and of course, making sure it’s all put together perfectly is director Tony Scott, who is just as talented shooting nuanced intimate conversations as he is shooting grandiose action scenes. good game, sir. thank you for your cinema.
