This has always been one of my favorite scenes. It is so well written and so well acted. You would think such a long monologue where the camera is on one actors face the entire time wouldn’t work in any film but especially not one like Jaws. But the delivery is so magnetic that you can’t look away and you are completely captured by what he is saying. Great scene, definitely one of my reference scenes when I explain the power of the right dialogue and delivery.
