This video is a side-by-side comparison of the Opening and Closing Shots of 75 great films. What can this comparison teach us about these particular films and, more importantly, about the art of cinema?
I want to give full credit for the idea behind this to Jacob T Swinney, whose magnificent first and final frames videos (vimeo.com/122378469 and vimeo.com/140600860) inspired me to create my own using different films.
Finally, I’d like to point out that the selection is not based on the value of the movies but on the power of the comparison between their first and last frames.
