Hi All and welcome to this weeks SCOD 1. What do you think of the contrast between everyone else looking to the sky and Frodo staring creepily ahead?
Frodo doesn't have to look around to see the demons! They are right there in his head. which is creepy. Very. 2. Why do you think only Gollum was bound?
I think the Rangers of Ithilien get a vibe from Gollum, of murder and malice, that they simply don't get from Hobbits, even if they are a bit unsure of the Hobbits. 3. Does this scene work for you?
Well I hadn't considered the logistics as much until now... so there is that difficulty. But purely as a scene in its own right, yes it does. Especially as it sets the stage for Sam to do some needed tale telling; and for Frodo to show how he has changed, and what the Ring let's him see. I love that when Frodo goes *very* creepy and eye-rolling, Faramir has a look of startled horror on his face. Serious business going on, and I like that he takes these Hobbits seriously. 4. Any other comments?
Sméagol looks so very pitiful in this scene, so skinny and bedraggled (even more than usual.) One of the times I really felt physical 'pain' for him. Even though I know what's bugging him the most is not being able to tear our Frodo's throat, grab the Ring and run. And I like the extension of the cold 'twilight' coloring we talked about recently. Cheers
