Best Of - Can You Feel the Subtext?

Hey guys,

The first study we did here was about
subtext in dialogue, which was SO much fun. I have such a great treasure trove of scenes to share. We decoded wordless subtext, one-word subtext, single and double entendres, lines that have two or even three layers of meaning, subtext in seduction, poetry, evasion, and appeasement, the subtext of not saying what would normally be said, I could go on and on…

It’s just as true today as it was in July, 2006, when we concluded this study that layered dialogue always fascinates and entertains even after repeat viewings. Hope you enjoy them.

Thanks again to all the contributors.
