SCOD: The countenance of Gandalf the White Can't Post

Sorry for a belated SCOD people!

full size here

Doesn't this shot -wow- you? It does wow me. There is such humanity in Gandalf here. Eyes like deep pools of sorrow and understanding, and yet as a Maiar, he is immortal. The funeral of Théodred and the following exchange between Gandalf and Théoden is a potent emotional part of the film which I adore, and Gandalf's face here just encapsulates it for me. It is rather more than just mourning though, there's a great many layers to his demeanour in this cap.

1. What do you feel from Gandalf's expression here? Describe it

2. How do you think that this scene would be different if it were Gandalf the Grey?

4. Do you think PJ & Co. addressed the themes of death in this part and throughout the films adequately?

5. Extra comments :)
