Montage of Movie Final Scenes

In this short video, The Last Thing You See: A Final Shot Montage, Zach Prewitt has created a montage of final movie scenes. The video connects final shots by theme, creating a seamless video of wonderful moments in what Prewitt calls, “A meditation on the beautiful, cathartic, and transcendent power of the final shot.”

The collection is divided into eight parts: Awakening/Creation, The Natural World, Youth, Love, The Journey, Triumph, Celebration, and Transcendence. It opens with scenes from The Tree of Life (2011) and Vanilla Sky (2001) and ends with scenes from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and The Last Temptation of Christ (1988). Check it out.

The music for the montage is “Gathering Storm” by Godspeed You! Black Emperor. For a complete list of movies, check out YouTube.
