Lies and DeceitEdit
"The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled, was convincing the world he didn't exist." (Verbal Kint)
The Usual Suspects is a perfect example of how language can be used to decieve those around you, and create a convincing story that almost anyone will believe.
Verbal uses language to decieve Kujan just as many people throughout history, especially world leaders, have used language to decieve people into following them.
The Usual Suspects perfectly showcases how language can be used to decieve people, and to convince them to believe whatever you choose.
How it Was AccomplishedEdit
"The most dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason, but no morals." (Martin Luther King Jr.)
Verbal weaves an intricate tale and decieves Kujan using just the objects he sees around the room. From using Kobayashi Ceramics to formulate a fake name for his lawyer to telling how he was in a barbershop quartet using a brand name from a whiteboard, Verbal is an expert when it comes to lying.
Verbal weaves a story inside of a story, telling the false story of Keyser Soze inside of his story of the events leading up to the coke deal, and has Kujan fooled right until the very end, when it is too late.
"A guy like that, after getting this close my guess is youll never see him or hear from him again, too scared to poke his head up."
Verbal's story fools the cops easily, and he is never seen or heard from again.
Relation to History and Real LifeEdit
"Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it." (Adolf Hitler).
