NF-Lee's Gildor and Frodo

“Ridiculous Thoughts,” Part One ~ Elijah Wood screencaps….

“Ridiculous Thoughts,” Part One....

In my previous LJ entry (about men in kissing scenes), “How did I manage to get such a hot crush on film-Frodo, who has no love scenes at all?”

Here’s a paraphrase of what I said….

When does one get to see the face of male film characters revealing the range and depth of their emotions? In love or sex scenes, particularly? Nope, in angst scenes.

No, we don't get to see film-Frodo making love. We don’t get to see his face while someone makes him tremble and melt and go wild until he is succumbs in ecstasy. But we do get to see him respond to every sort of non-sexual stimulus: he shivers, swoons, sighs, pants, quakes, sobs, seethes, struggles, strives, sweats, and collapses in delirium. That's when I get to see the emotional "reaction" shots I crave.

Inspired by that post, I am presenting a series of screencaps not of Frodo, but Elijah Wood. They are taken from a 1995 rock video by The Cranberries, for their song, Ridiculous Thoughts…..
