This made me smile and relise something i have never noticed before When Frodo reaches into the water to save Sam from drowning in FOTR, it is like a glimpse into the future but vice versa, as we all know Sam reached down to save Frodo in Mount Doom! Loved how those two scenes were one after the other in this video! Does anyone think that PJ wanted to make that link with two similar shots or just a coincidence?
I think that one of the writers mentions this symmetry in the commentary to ROTK, as far as I can remember. Is there a Tolkien topic that you have wanted to look into more deeply and write about your thoughts on it? If so, we'd like to hear from you for the next TORn Amateur Symposium- coming in November. Happy writing!
