Since the beginning of motion pictures, filmmakers have trained their cameras at whooping, wheezing, sneezing, sniffling, hacking humans. Some of these expulsions are pivotal to the narrative. Many are purely incidental. But today, they all take on a new significance as vectors for disease. That’s why we believe now is the moment to examine them together in isolation, to see how their depictions vary across history and genre, and to understand how they’re shaped by the lens of the present.
You can see all the collected movie coughs in a mega-video, browse the gallery for individual clips, or check out the categories of gross coughs, drowning coughs, Spielberg coughs, and background coughs, or sneezes by themselves. You can even play a game of identifying the movie from an audio clip of a cough, if you think you’re an expert on such things. -via Everlasting Blort
