Breaking Bad

This is a still from the show Breaking Bad. Only a moment in one episode of the series, it is able to capture many of the main ideas explored in the show. The men standing in a similar pose forces the viewer to make comparisons between the two characters. They both are focused only on one another, ignoring the natural vastness around them that is highlighted by this long shot. Many elements in this frame are interesting: how we only see a profile of each character, the lightness surrounding them, the way they mirror each other, the slight differences in clothing highlighting their similarities, and the gap that is between them.
