Great site: Opening Shots

Pop quiz: can you name the three films that open with the images shown above? All come from the Opening Shots Project, a wonderful site I discovered this morning [thanks to The Beat for the link]. Various online people discuss and dissect the opening shots of movies, but with enthusiasm and verve - not dry, academic filmschool speak. Being a wannabe screenwriter myself and sometime comics scribe, this sort of discussion and imagery combo really fires my synapses. Check it out by going here.

The second one is almost certainly Lost in Translation, one of my all time favourite films.
