Film Scenes: Brooks in Shawshank Redemption
Great writing and acting. The look on James Whitmore's face while he rides the bus and Morgan Freeman's face after hearing the end of his letter, perfection; it's acting that looks and feels like real life.
That first moment that sought to document an act, an idea, a presence, an existence, a deity... that initial spark of creativity born of desire to intensify experience, enhance a space, beautify a body, paint a cave wall, decorate a tool... that first shuffling of utterances, that first gesture, that first rhythm, that first song... that was when we truly became human. --Kevin
