There's too many for the forum imho. I will figure out a way eventually. It's probably going to be some sort of dropbox thing or something. I'll share it with you, but I shan't share my dropbox on a public forum.

ok, so here's just one example of a screenshot.

dem fucking chairs, man. they are being used everywhere. it's such a great idea to use an item as mundane as a chair so heavily to symbolize power structures, conflicts and the organisational level of the systems depicted in the wire

a good example is this near the end of S3. irl, it's everywhere and wonderful, this is just a particularly excellent example. you'll immediately see what it symbolizes once you pay attention to it. irl, if you're very attentive during your first time watching the wire, you could spoiler yourself a whole lot. it's that expertly directed.

Yes, that's how I felt, too when i first saw it. It's the hypest

there's also the thing with the through-the-window perspective that suggests prison bars, because in the end, both of them share the same problem: they're both trapped in their role and they can't get out of it. Just watch this scene: There's music in the background that's literally saying "i'm locked up, they won't let me out".



also, the clothes.

a great fucking shot
