Great Movie Beginnings

The screen goes dark. Music begins. The first image emerges or explodes. And you are either inside of something or outside spectating.

Manhattan (1979) It doesn’t get better than this.

To Kill A Mockingbird (1962) Perfection?

McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971).  Robert Altman’s best masterpiece.

Blade Runner (1982). Total Immersion in the future in 2:29.

David Lynch’s Blue Velvet (1986). Norman Rockwell’s America has a fatal embolism.

Wes Anderson’s Rushmore  (1998) World’s Hardest Geometry Equation. World’s Best opening scene?
