This shot makes me think of the Coen brothers' A Serious Man

I love the balance of this shot, how the two characters fit together despite being apart

Many shots capture the tragic side of Ed Wood, but I think this one says the most

    "Ed Wood" was a great choice for Paused. Most of those are really amazing pics, and the one with Martin Landau and the octopus is just really sad if you have seen the movie."Ed Wood" is one of my favorites from Burton, more people should see it.
    By the way, the thing about "A serious man" is spot on.

    While I agree that octopus scene is largely sad, it also has that wonderful moment where Landau shouts, "Let's shoot this fucker!"

      I agree as well, its sad, but I laugh every time I hear that. Just as a photo though, is more sad than funny.

    Best Tim Burton film, an absolute classic. Loved this article.

    Love this new series. Not every photo needs a caption or a reason to be there. Just enjoyable. Also, reckon I have to change my name up a little with another "Sean" in town...

  • Lenano

    Burton's best movie in my opinion. Truly an amazing and beautiful movie, one of my favorites. After watching, it gave me an urge to watch Plan 9.

    Oh, and Brad, these pictures are too random, you should be writing a 4 paragraph caption under each and every image explaining why you chose it and how it relates to the overall themes of the movie, in excruciating detail. ;)
