Greatest opening moments ever filmed
It's hard—perhaps impossible—to have a great movie without a great opening sequence. Whether it's just one shot or a whole little story, there has to be something right at the beginning of a film to grab the viewer's attention and convince them that this is worth spending a couple of hours on. Some openings are built around dialogue, or even monologue. Some are about action. Some use music to set the mood, and some are unsettlingly quiet. It wouldn't be hard to put together a list of 100 great opening scenes, but here we've assembled ten that represent a variety of approaches and show just how incredible a movie's first few minutes can be.
