First/Last Shots

“The first shot allows a director to make a statement of purpose for the film the audience is about to see. The last shot allows for a quick summation of all that’s come before. The two can provide circularity by mirroring each other exactly, or they can suggest a film’s journey by being jarring counterpoints.”

Watch: this supercut will change how you think about first and last shots of movies
