Capturing a Golden Moment #7: Sometimes a Great Notion

In this series I'd like to present some exceptional scenes inspired by cinema's most gifted artists of yesteryear.

 

 

Sometimes a Great Notion (1971)

Director: Paul Newman

Scene: "Logging Accident"

Harrowing but poignant, Newman's directorial debut reveals the unique identities of his characters and their deeply commited relationships with one another in this stunningly tragic scene.
