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.
