That psychologist scene from “Skyfall”…

That psychologist scene from “Skyfall”…

Mobile. Sorry. Blah blah blah…

James Bond is being evaluated for fitness. Part of his evaluation is a session with a head shrink where they play a word association game.

The Dr says "Day". Where everyone else would say "night", Bond throws shade. And it only gets better.

It's such an awesome scene. Every word out of Bond's mouth is dripping with disdain and annoyance. And even then, he shows off his mindset. In his mind, nothing is straightforward, nothing is obvious. He's constantly looking for an advantage or an angle; EVERYTHING is a competition. Everything is an engagement. Everyone is an enemy.

And that gets shown off in less than 2 minutes. Such a cool bit of cinema.
