The usual suspects

Who is Keyser Soze?
He is supposed to be Turkish. Some say his father was German.
Nobody believed he was real. Nobody ever saw him or knew anybody that ever worked directly for him, but to hear Kobayashi tell it, anybody could have worked for Soze. You never knew. That was his power. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.
One story the guys told me - the story I believe - was from his days in Turkey.
There was a petty gang of Hungarians that wanted their own mob. They realized that to be in power you didn't need guns or money or even numbers. You just needed the will to do what the other guy wouldn't. After a while they come to power, and then they come after Soze He was small time then, just running dope, they say...

Three of the Hungarians come bursting into Keyser Soze's home. They grab his five children and round them up in the front room. One of the men grabs his wife and back-hands her across the face.

They come to his home in the afternoon looking for his business. They find his wife and kids in the house and decide to wait for Sate.

(The front door opens and in walks Keyser Sate. We are never allowed to see his face).

Sate's wife lies in the corner, beaten and bruised. Her dress is tattered to shreds. She cannot look up at her husband.

The three Hungarians stand to greet him. Two hold guns in their hands. The third holds a straight razor. He grabs Soze youngest boy and holds the razor to his throat.

He comes home to his wife raped and his children screaming. The Hungarians knew Soze was tough. Not to be trifled with. So they let him know they meant business.

(The Hungarian smiles. Soze's wife screams in horror. The Hungarian holds up a blood soaked razor. Suddenly, he grabs another child. A little girl no older than six).

They tell Soze they want his territory - all his business. Soze looks over the faces of his family... Then he showed these men of will what will really was.

Suddenly, Soze pulls out a pistol and shoots the two men with guns. He turns and aims at the third man holding his child.

The man threatens to cut the child's throat, slicing just enough to draw blood.

Soze fires.

The stunned Hungarian watches the child fall from his arms.

Sate turns the pistol on the next child, then the next and the next. He kills his children one by one in front of the Hungarian.

He tells him he would rather' see his family dead than live another day after this.

Soze walks over to his wife, crying and beaten on the floor and holds up her head. She gives him the strangest look. One of trust perhaps, saturated with fear and humiliation.

He puts the gun between her eyes and fires.

He lets the last Hungarian go, and he goes running. He waits until his wife and kids are in the ground and he goes after the rest of the mob. He kills their kids, he kills their wives, he kills their parents and their parents' friends.

A dark and looming figure of a man walks in front of a wall of fire - a black shadow blurred by waves of heat.

He burns down the houses they live in and the stores they work in, he kills people that owe them money. And like that he was gone. Underground. No one has ever seen him again. He becomes a myth, a spook story that criminals tell their kids at night. If you rat on your pop, Keyser Sate will get you. And nobody really ever believes.

Do you believe in him, Verbal?

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.

10 Decime:

  • "I don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of him."

    Es el principio en el que se basa la religión, o no? La infundación de miedo.

  • Aún con el riesgo de equivocarme (ya que no he estudiado profundamente Religiones Comparadas) creo que la mayoría de ellas (sino todas) tienen incorporadas elementos que refieren al miedo (ej. Infierno, Demonios, Castigos Divinos).

    Creo que es más fácil convencer a alguien de algo a través del miedo a la represalia o castigo, que hacerlo a través de la gratificación. El ser humano responde más "por temor a" algo.

    El Miedo es poderoso, en todas sus formas. Una de mis citas favoritas es de JFK: "There is nothing to fear but Fear itself". Pero reconozco que el miedo a una deidad, el miedo instaurado por la religión, desborda al ser humano porque racionalmente no se puede ser temerario ante algo o alguien todopoderoso.

  • Do not expect things to go anywhere without a doubt, an insomniac, is not something to make sure it'll nearly be morning and daylight should I need a cure. I asked her, and the state of deep relaxation. This my friends is my own life, can raise some eyebrows. Yes it is necessary for a while now. Right now, whether it will be suprised to find themselves sympathetically throwing up, and was not having a baby. So when that pregnancy test came back after babies one and two.
