Single Still
Combining photography and filmography, I'm trying to derive the essence of films from a single still. All content original, citation appreciated.
This Sporting Life
Frank Machin (Richard Harris), through quick thinking and grit, manages to leave his life as a coal miner to join his local rugby league club. Yet, despite his ability to become a star, he remains helpless to change his upbringing and his true place in society. This Sporting Life does an incredible job at evoking the rage one feels when their hands are tied, no matter how hard they try.
