Guess the final image
Think you know your movies? Test yourself at The Final Image, a blog that asks its readers to name the film of the latest screenshot they post. “A shrine for screenshots of the final thought, le mise-en-scene finale, or the final shot of films,” The Final Image is kind of like a visual film version of Jeopardy.
When an image’s accompanying film is unfamiliar I find that my mind tries to interpret it and automatically fills in the blanks, and in the process I’ve created a new story composed entirely out of just that single image. The most arresting final shot I’ve across in the past couple of years has to be from INCEPTION and (spoiler alert warning to the one person who still hasn’t seen this film) the way it cuts abruptly from the spinning totem, which left the theater groaning in frustration.
