Non seulement les deux inspecteurs de True Detective enquêtent sur un crime particulièrement sordide, mais en plus, Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) n’est pas ce qu’on appelle un gai luron. Dans cette scène, il expose à son partenaire Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson) sa philosophie pessimiste. (Le texte en anglais est suivi de l’extrait vidéo et d’une traduction en français.)
RUST : People out here, it’s like they don’t even know the outside world exists. Might as well be living on the fucking moon.
MARTY : There’s all kinds of ghettos in the world.
RUST : It’s all one ghetto, man. A giant gutter in outer space.
MARTY : Today, that scene, that is the most fucked up thing I ever caught. Ask you something? You’re a Christian, yeah?
RUST : No.
MARTY : Well, then what do you got the cross for in your apartment?
RUST : That’s a form of meditation.
MARTY : How’s that?
RUST : I contemplate the moment in the garden, the idea of allowing your own crucifixion.
MARTY : But you’re not a Christian. So what do you believe?
RUST : I believe that people shouldn’t talk about this type of shit at work.
MARTY : Hold on, hold on. Three months we been together, I get nothing from you. Today, what we’re into now. Do me a courtesy, okay? I’m not trying to convert you.
RUST : Look, I’d consider myself a realist, all right, but in philosophical terms, I’m what’s called a pessimist.
MARTY : Um, okay. What’s that mean?
RUST : It means I’m bad at parties.
MARTY : (CHUCKLES) Let me tell you, you ain’t great outside of parties either.
RUST : I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware. Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself. We are creatures that should not exist by natural law.
MARTY : Huh. That sounds god-fucking-awful, Rust.
RUST : We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, this accretion of sensory experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody when, in fact, everybody’s nobody.
MARTY : I wouldn’t go around spouting that shit if I was you. People around here don’t think that way. I don’t think that way.
RUST : I think the honorable thing for our species to do is deny our programming. Stop reproducing. Walk hand in hand into extinction. One last midnight. Brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.
MARTY : So what’s the point in getting out of bed in the morning?
RUST : I tell myself I bear witness, but the real answer is that it’s obviously my programming. And I lack the constitution for suicide.
MARTY : My luck, I picked today to get to know you. Three months I don’t hear a word from you, and –
RUST : You asked.
MARTY : – Yeah. And now I’m begging you to shut the fuck up.
RUST : I get a bad taste in my mouth out here. Aluminum, ash. Like you can smell the psychosphere.
MARTY : I got an idea. Let’s make the car a place of silent reflection from now on. Okay?
RUST : What should I bring for dinner?
MARTY : A bottle of wine would be nice, I guess.
RUST : I don’t drink.
MARTY : Oh, no, of course not, Rust. Listen. When you’re at my house, I want you to chill the fuck out. Don’t even mention any of that bullshit you just said to me.
RUST : Of course not, Marty. I’m not some kind of maniac, all right? I mean, for fuck’s sake. (SIGHS)
