Watch: CineFix Picks the 100 Most Iconic Shots in Cinema of All-Time
While the #CinephilePhoto trend on Twitter is highlighting a lot of favorite shots from filmmakers and fans alike, CineFix has decided to collect what they they are the 100 Most Iconic Shots of All-Time. They start all the way in the past with some of the earliest motion pictures, moving through iconic silent films very quickly until things move very quickly beginning with Citizen Kane. Now this isn't entirely meant to be definitive, though it strives for some objectivity by including well-regarded films of history like North by Northwest and The Wizard of Oz as well as pop culture icons like Raiders of the Lost Ark and more.
Here's CineFix's picks for the 100 Most Iconic Shots of All-Time (via Movies.com):
While I'm not sure I entirely agree with inclusions like Pretty Woman, The Notebook or Some Like It Hot, despite the timeless nature of the latter comedy in cinema's history, many of the right shots are recognized from Back to the Future, Silence of the Lambs, Gone with the Wind, Casablanca and more. Others that feel out of place are the pool scene from Fast Times at Ridgemont High and the orgasm scene from When Harry Met Sally. The first is just too typical and the latter is more of a great scene than an iconic shot. Surely there are 100 more that aren't mentioned here you can think of. Do it!
