: (I don't suppose Duncan ever came close to kissing Cora like that!)
: Joy, I don't think ANY of us have been kissed like that!
No, surely not!!!
Don't you love the way, just before they cut to the "afterglow" shot, he rests his head on her shoulder/chest? That movement is so touching...seems to convey a certain private admission of his own inner -- what? -- I want to say "fragility" because after all, we are all fragile underneath, but then it's hard to think of Hawkeye as fragile, exactly!! But what I mean is, he's trusting himself emotionally to her with that gesture. Does anybody else get what I mean??
And, Joy, I do agree that the unspokenness of everything that happens is what makes it so powerful.
