Congratulations this week to Maxine for her George Orwell quote!


House of Cards, Season 3, Episode 10, 20:19

“The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”
– George Orwell, Animal Farm

Title: Opponent

Description: Every hero needs a villain. Viktor Petrov (Lars Mikkelsen) is the gray, cold, Russian counterpart to Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey). The confrontation shown here, with Viktor’s face on the big screen, triggers an instinctive fear and impulse to overcome. In this moment we identify with Frank. The moral line that usually separates us from him evaporates, and we only want to see Viktor fail.

Next piece up later today! Keep tabs on the project and contest at the project website here, or review the project over at the previous post here.
