LET’S HAVE A SIT DOWN! #1
I’m going to try a little experiment which may become a regular feature on my blog if it is successful enough and I can continue to amass the material. The aim is to bring two actors together in conversation using only dialogue from characters that they have played.
The two actors I’ve chosen to get this little experiment going have actually already shared the screen together. We were first treated to this with the coffee shop scene in Heat. That’s right, it’s the legendary Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino engaging in a little fighting talk…
(Warning: if you are sensitive of ear and easily offended then don’t read on as this conversation will contain quite a lot of profanities.)
DeNiro: It’s not necessary to lay a foul tongue on me my friend. I could get upset. Things could get out of hand. Then in self defense, I could do something to you that you would not like, right here.
DeNiro: … if you make one more move on me, you motherfucker, I’ll fuckin’ cut your fuckin’ balls off and shove ‘em up your fuckin’ ass. I’ll fuckin’ bury you! I’m gonna stick ice picks in your eyes and send ‘em to your family so they can eat them for dessert!
Pacino: Who the fuck are you?… What, you think you like me? You ain’t like me motherfucker, you a punk. I’ve been with made people, connected people. Who’ve you been with? Chain snatching, jive-ass, maricon motherfuckers. Why don’t you get out of here and go snatch a purse.
DeNiro: I ain’t no white trash piece of shit. I’m better than you… I can out-learn you. I can out-read you. I can out-think you. And I can out-philosophize you. And I’m gonna outlast you. You think a couple whacks to my guts is gonna get me down? It’s gonna take a hell of a lot more than that… to prove you’re better than me!
