Exposed: Frames 02216-02490

This is a beautifully composed shot and one of the longest in the film at nearly 16 seconds. You might be forgiven for thinking that Stanley Kubrick directed this shot: the long take, the lone actor, the misc-en-sen itself of the Truck Driver wandering like a virgin (he was!) out of the forest and stumbling as it were upon this lake-like element (it was in fact, and still is, a lake). Unsatisfied, he returns to the darkness of the woods, to confront his fears, and his emerging manhood.
