Re: Movies: that last shot
Norman Bates wouldn't hurt a fly. But he'll destroy your soul just by looking at you. Then the image of a skull is subliminally imposed on to his face, just to get under your skin even further.
A great sequence...except it's not the the last shot of the movie. The last shot is Marion's car being dragged from the lake.
Except there's a fade from Norman's face to the car, so it sort of is
Here's one of my
favorites... a free cookie to the first person to name it!
That's from Zodiac
, a favorite of mine.
That guy (Jimmi Simpson) in the pic went to my high school (Hackettstown, NJ) too. I knew him when he wasn't a celebrity!
