Amazing caps. The normally so beautiful and souldful Frodo... looking entirely wild, mad, enraged, desperate, about to throw up. The visuals really do speak for themselves concerning what's happening to Frodo, when seen like this.

The clowing-around pic is a nice but almost surreal contrast. :-)

I agree that he looks lightyears away from his usual Frodo-self, but so he should. Still, it's rather alarming--and gripping--to see it.

Do you think the post should be clowning-around pic free? I'd hate to ruin the effect just for the sake of providing an entertaining behind-the-scenes photo. This is a serious question, so let me know.

No, I don't think the clowning should be removed. At the end of the day the serious ones are of an actor at his trade - and doing it extremely well. The clowning through contrast helps further demonstrate just how well, IMO.

Whew! That's how I hoped it would be perceived, Maeglian. I think he and Andy are super in this scene, into their roles 150%. The shot mugging for the cameraperson makes me think how much work it was, that the "playing" was the natural and necessary spilling-over of pent-up energies from the intense concentration.
