• When thinking of a movie you’ve seen, what do you first recall? An actor’s face, a snatch of music, a plot twist? For artist Paul Rogers, it all seems to come down to settings and objects; his drawings of films fascinatingly illustrate how the details of a film might stand out differently for one viewer than they do for another. On his blog on Drawger.com, Rogers has sketched a series of movies, reducing each to six isolated images (often street signs, objects, and peripheral moments from the narrative) and inviting viewers to “Name That Movie.” We’re happy to have figured out a couple (The 39 Steps, The Red Shoes), but it’s harder than you might think. Thanks to Very Short List for the tip!
