“Who is Keyser Soze?” from “The Usual Suspects” (1995) dir. Bryan Singer, scr. Christopher McQuarrie


One of the most bone-chilling scenes in cinematic history .. this is the back story of master criminal Keyser Soze … the much-feared boogeyman of Bryan Singer’s best film “The Usual Suspects.” As Kevin Spacey’s character Verbal Kint says: “Keaton always said, ‘I don’t believe in God, but I’m afraid of him.’ Well I believe in God, and the only thing that scares me is Keyser Soze.”

The other key line: “The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”

The clip here is not safe for work. It’s not particularly bloody, but extremely disturbing.

The opening scene of “Way of the Gun” (2000) … or how 90% of most fights are started …


The terrific and gloriously politically incorrect opening of writer/director Christopher McQuarrie’s 2000 film “Way of the Gun” … McQuarrie’s follow-up to his Oscar-winning script for “The Usual Suspects.” The performance by Sarah Silverman as the obnoxious girlfriend is beyond perfect. The fact that the entire sequence is underscored by the Rolling Stones’ “Rip This Joint” makes it even more memorable. Be warned, though. The language (and action in the sequence) is beyond obscene … not safe for work, little ones, or those who are highly sensitive.
