How The Face Changes With Shifting A Light Source
I find this fascinating
oh my god
leia’s reaction there has to be the most realistic I’ve seen in any movie that’s done this sort of thing
not like, “tender gasp, touches hand to mouth” or “defiant eyes, whisper ‘no…!’” or whatever trope drama bullshit
She’s a princess, she knows her shit, and she’s like WHAT THE FUCK???
and the other one she is so dumbstruck she doesn’t shut her eyes for a second and doesn’t look anyhwere because she needs to see what’s going on, she needs to see it happen, in the risk they’re actually serious.
and her last reaction is to tense up and try and move away or recoil, like, she has some sort of control… at that point she would do anything but also feels helplessness. Like… watching your baby teeter over the edge of a cliff, knowing you could never get there in time… all you can do is watch
I recommend everyone watch these movies as adults, not kids, and see it differently. It’s not massively renowned for nothin
