Exposed: Frames 00693-00909

Within two seconds of the commencement of this shot, the actor has flung his pulp novel in a spastic manner and grabbed for a ringing telephone – presumably the established connection from the previous shot. This is who TD turns to in his hour of need: a thirteen-year-old spaz surrounded by science-fantasy posters and a state-of-the-art Texas Instruments home computer. Nodding – uh-huh, uh-huh – he replies, at one point with the receiver held back away from his ear due to the expressed urgency in TD’s voice. What he heard exactly we don’t know – yet we do know, based on the superior acting exhibited in this shot – that is was important enough for the spaz to simply stand up and walk out of the shot: whereabouts unknown.
