SCOD: A frolicking Gollum - sometimes you just want to hug the little fellow Can't Post

Today's the big day for many of us (well not me, probably Frown), but for many TORnsibs! But if you're waiting for crowds to thin a bit, or if you just want a break from Hobbitmania, here's another screencap to ponder. Here we have Gollum in Smeagol mode. He has a puppy dog quality here, very eager to please.

Any thoughts on this image are welcome, but, some points to consider include:

Has Gollum really reverted to Smeagol? Is his eagerness to please and to be helpful sincere at this point?

What do you think of the compostion? Is there any significance to his placement within the shot?

What about technical issues - how realistic do you think he looks? Any problems?

Any thoughts on Andy Serkis' performance?

Which leads me to a little extracurricular credit. AngelicEvil Please forgive me on this, it's a bit unorthadox, but it's something that has always fascinated me: Was Gollum's look and behavior in any way influenced by the character actor, Peter Lorre? I am always reminded of him whenever I watch Gollum. Maybe this has been addressed, if not, I wonder what others think. Here's a clip from Casablanca featuring Peter Lorre.

Thanks everyone! Smile
