VIDEO 10 best movie opening shots ever

Movies only get one chance to make a first impression and that opening shot is of vital importance. Like the first line of a novel, it's about capturing the audience, drawing them into the universe the film wants to create and helping them to understand its rules.

And sometimes that's done with a very cool shot ideed.

CineFix has put together a video of the best opening shots in film history and while that's a big ask their picks are certainly some fine examples of movie art. Watch the full video below.

It's broken down into different kinds of first shots so this isn't a pure list, leaving some room to mention other movies. And that's no bad thing, with the video operating as more of a visual essay on opening shots.
