Between the beats

Its my favourite Debussy quote: “Music is the silence between the notes” and similarly with film & great acting, the ‘action’ in drama is not in what is said but is in what is not said & how it isn’t said – the breaths, foley & still moments where the eyes betray the mind & transfer emotions directly to the audiences heart.
Accordingly it is fascinating to see a scene stripped of dialogue: A few silent men
