Subtleties

A couple days ago, while watching a re-run of Gattaca, I noticed something that escaped me the last couple times I watched the movie (yes - I watch good movies more than once).

In the gym scene, detective Anton says to director Josef "I am curious". Then we are given a brief glimpse into the director's soul when he assumes this is not about the ongoing murder investigation but rather a comment on Anton's own nature, and praises it as this is a very useful trait in his profession.

Writing a screenplay like this is building people word by word. While part of me was happy for finding this small pearl, another part of me felt truly saddened for the director.

I just thought it was worth sharing.
