Favorite Movie Scenes For The Sadist

All of my personal favorite movie scenes which deal with either pervasive subjects, scenes where characters are taken to the extreme, or some sort of psychological mindplay between the characters. Very often these are scenes of close knit tension between 2 characters, and heavy in dialogue.
