NF-Lee's Gildor and Frodo

Shelob’s Lair Pt. 1 ~ Entering the tunnel (#1 of 9).

~*~


This is the first in a series of nine for Shelob's tunnel and the pass of Cirith Ungol up until the moment when Shelob is hovering over Frodo's head. I liked so many of the screencaps, even after eliminating half of them, there were too many to squeeze into fewer posts.

I think this an excellent piece of filmmaking. Collapse )

As film Frodo stumbles among the webs and corpses, his horror and wretchedness are accentuated exponentially by feelings of self-blame and grief for Sam: grief that Sam is not there, but also grief that he himself is responsible for Sam’s absence, perhaps even Sam’s death in enemy hands.

Elijah Wood, even at his young age, powerfully conveys these varied feelings.
