Q: What are examples of movies which depict some of the most skillfully concocted banter?

My Answer:
Things to Do in Denver When You’re Dead:
Establishes a different, and unique dialogue learned in jail and ingrained in these guys’ personalities. Some examples include:

1. Greeting- Instead of a handshake or “pound” the characters press hands together as they would in a correctional facility facing each other separated by thick, wire-reinforced, sound-proofed glass. When they do it out in the world, there is no glass so when they press hands it’s a gentle gesture, it almost looks like a slow-motion high 5, but without the smack, leaving a much more personalized connection (emphasized in the film by the accompanying deep eye-contact, that clearly has a lot of non-verbal communicating behind the gesture).
