As for the “Mordor, Gandalf, is it left or right?” sequence, how can I complain? Yes, Frodo would very well know which way to go when leaving Rivendell, but when he has the face of a Michelangelo, bathed in the dew of the first dawning of the world, I cannot dwell on that. I have interpreted the line as an expression of Frodo’s flusterment, all eyes unaccustomedly upon him – increasingly awed then made resolute by the enormity of what he was doing.


I thought that it was a little inane, but I also, for the same reasons you have given, found it endearing. I've often been in two minds about extra bits or extrapolations that Jackson did (very confusing to always have two minds arguing!) But I'm quite content to enjoy the scene anyways, and to enjoy these lovely screen caps that you've made. I also enjoy your own descriptions and commentary. Thank you! :)

Take a look at the comments of Chickenlegs and Estelani, Gentlehobbit. I think they give better and deeper reflections on why what seems like an inane question nevertheless makes an affecting moment.

Thanks for commenting!
