Keyser Söze

Keyser Söze

“The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he didn’t exist.” – Verbal Kint

From Keyser’s Wiki entry:

Söze’s past is unknown, but the story told by Verbal Kint (Kevin Spacey) has Söze as a low-level Turkish drug dealer beginning his criminal career in his native Turkey. The entity that is Keyser Söze is truly born, however, when rival smugglers working for the Hungarian mob invade his house while he is away, rape his wife and hold his children hostage; when Söze arrives, they kill one of the children to show him their resolve, then threaten to kill his wife and remaining children if he does not surrender his business to them. Rather than give in to their demands, and to prevent his family from having to live with the memory of what has happened, he murders his loved ones and all but one of the Hungarians, whom he spares, knowing that the survivor would tell the mafia what has transpired.

Although they didn’t mention it, I am pretty sure Keyser Soze wore Brioni suits and drove a Pagani Zonda F Roadster when he tore through the Hungarian coutryside.

So badass. So very ESM.
