The man who sits still stands out.
In the movies, men are either running after something or running away from something. This is also true off-screen—chasing, chased. Non-stop movement is a morbid state. The remedial action is non-action: STOP.
A man running is easily knocked over. This is not the case with a man who is standing still. Like any other expression of action-less activity, there is an art to standing still.
