  • complement the scene's elements and overall purpose?
  • weave elegantly into the fabric?
  • give the actor something to do?
  • reach beyond the merely serviceable to the truly exquisite?

Does the action . .
  • avoid static situations, e.g.,
    • telephones
    • cars
    • restaurants
    • offices?
