The psychokinesis might be a half-granted wish. The roar of the train is probably the future rushing towards us. But - again - does it really matter?Freeze Frame - The 400 Blows (1959)The definition of open-ended, Antoine's look is basically the cinematic version of the Mona Lisa Smile. Is he happy? Hopeful? Uncertain? Disillusioned? Is he paralyzed and trapped, or condemning the society that failed him? The look is anything and everything at once, meaning something new to everyone.Iconic - Casablanca (1942)From Medium Close to Extreme Wide, there's no better way to say goodbye to a well-loved character and story.Want to send us stuff?CineFixc/o Mike CruzPO BOX 351213Los Angeles, CA 90035Watch More Recent Cinefix Videos:The Finest Hours Review! - Cinefix Now Framed Roger Rabbit - What’s The Difference?
