I’m interested in the ones that really put an image in your mind.
I know a guy who insisted that Citizen Kane showed the woman on the ferry and that the sun was behind her, illuminating her body beneath the dress. That isn’t in the movie. But the actor does a great job describing the scene, that it makes an image in your mind.
Quint talks about the USS Indianapolis is like that. They talk about a bunch of other incidents but none so indeliable at the image that Quint stirs in the audience with that speech.
For it is when he talks about how the men would scream and pound on the water to try and get the shark to leave.
Sometimes he’d go away. Sometimes he didn’t go away.
The image of a group of sailors in a little knot on the ocean, frantically pounding at the water and screaming as a shark is approaching is burned into my mind’s eye.
That sort of thing.
