a pivotal moment [In reply to] Can't Post

1.) What's Gollum's primary concern at this instant? Is he more concerned with himself than the Ring? If so, do his fears outway his lust? Elaborate.
"Don't give it to him", his voice really cracked on that line so I think that's where he's at.

2.) Taking a moment to examine the visual detail, what are some things you notice here that you might overlook in real time?
Gollum's eyes are really deeply sunken in.

3.) Abolishing all context with the movie, how would this image come across off-hand? Note Gollum, Frodo, focus and contrast.
Everything else is fading and blurring except for the focus on Gollum. I think this is a moment where Gollum makes a key heroic move and the fates of many are changed by his actions.

4.) Any other thoughts/comments?
I wonder if his teeth hurt - they look pretty badly uncared for.

    O.o that's quite interesting, Gollum isn't as real looking here as I had imagined Xanaseb Send a private message to Xanaseb Sep 16 2012, 9:41pm
