Single Still
Combining photography and filmography, I'm trying to derive the essence of films from a single still. All content original, citation appreciated.
Saving Private Ryan
After surviving the initial landing of Normandy, John H. Miller (Tom Hanks) is tasked with finding Private Ryan (Matt Damon), after all three of his brothers are killed in action. Saving Private Ryan displays Spielberg at his best: creating a thrilling ride, with an engaging narrative, that doesn’t get hung up on gags or tricks. And of course, the first thirty minutes or so might be one of the most riveting battle sequences ever filmed.
