But as folks are having fun discussing in the Uncle Owen...thread, there's some dark stuff in that film And it's been noted the end shot (just to keep on topic) owes something to Riefenstahl.

Speaking of Heston earlier, I vaguely remember a film saw on TV where he was attacked by killer ants at or near climax. But can't remember if it was actual ending. That actor really suffered for his art!
That was probably The Naked Jungle . . . .

I love this shot because, after an hour or so of (mostly) fun and games as Graysmith pursues his passion, we're reminded right at the end of the tragedy and horror of the killing spree. This young man just looks destroyed, even after all the years since.

Great point. Zodiac is one of the most horrifying and scary movies I've seen, since it happened. It was for real.

Also, I love that not only is the last character we see in the movie also the first character we see, but that they bring back "The Hurdy Gurdy Man" on the soundtrack just at the end. Just as the character remembers that night, as he remembers the song. I was in a theater with three other people but when the credits rolled I fucking stood up and applauded. I was so impressed by the movie.

Re: Movies: that last shot

I like to think that the final few moments of a film can double or halve how good the movie is, might wear off after a while though.

12 Monkeys' last shot I'm going to rip off in my short film. The penultimate shot needs a honorable mention too.

Dancer in the Dark was doubled by its last shot. Last scene actually but the last shot's great too.

Saw's one of the best ever! "Game Over." *SLAM*

I mean this as sincerely as possible: as someone who admires your efforts in the creative endeavor of making your own short films, why would you copy shots another film? Or, in your words, "rip off"?

Yep. Perfect ending!

The last shot of The Hurt Locker- Sgt. James walking down the road in his bomb suit, with the ominous caption "Days left in rotation: 360" over it. You know he is eventually going to get blown up.

I love it and it fits perfectly here with some changes, it's more a quick detail in this. It hardly rips off the whole movie of its originality.

It also opens with that music from Antichrist with some dicks in both senses of the word though...

It's still original, honest!

I'm not quite sure of the shots you're referring to: the last scene in the airport, the scene in the parking lot, or the scene inside the plane?

Last shot's the kid's eyes. I'm not really sure if it's penultimate, but I meant the one inside the plane.

I only ask because I find the end of the third-to-last scene, when Kathryn smiles at young Cole, to be the most powerful of the film.

The last scene in Godfather as Michael becomes the new Don and the door shuts on Kay.

The Master was a good movie but the last shot was terrible. So black-and-white and crudely just tacked there. The rest of it wasn't like that at all.

Neither part's in the head-treatment any longer as I changed the tone to something light-hearted and punkish as it drifted more and more depressing while the core idea was supposed to be light-hearted. Maybe I'll make it in the next month as the script's going to finish quickly now it's been thought through and the sets are gonna be just some pink painted cardboard castle walls and the acting's supposed to be just some unnaturally happy people.

Sometimes credits are more a part of the movie than usual. Dogville ended unexpectedly light-heartedly. Oh and the final shot's fine too.
