a quick response [In reply to] Can't Post

because this is a scene I've spoken of many times. I dug out an old correspondence and did a copy and paste. I often feel my first reactions are more real than when I rehash them over and over again. :-)
I've always loved how that scene was filmed in TTT, "Your words are poison". It seems so stifling and close in that room that holds imminent death. Eowyn throws those words at Wormtongue and flies out of the hall. I can just feel the sharp, cool air that blows past her. Her life is close, and stuffy, and filled with death and decay and the world is open and free and sharp. The only taste she gets of that world is the wind in her face as it blows past her. It is perhaps one of the most evocative scenes in all three movies for me.

It's one scene that I feel viscerally.
