The final shot of a movie is arguably its most important; it can intelligently deploy numerous questions into the minds of the viewer and elevate even a mediocre film to cult status. Moreover, it leaves the audience with their final impression of their movie-going experience, and – as such – is the shot which needs to shine that little bit brighter than all the others that have preceded it.
Set to Arvo Part’s stirring Spiegel im Spiegel and mostly focusing on contemporary films, Vimeo user Lorenzo Antico has put together this supercut of some of cinema’s most cathartic and powerful final shots – from Fight Club to Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity to Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman.
