First and Final Frames

This is one thing I've been noticing lately since I started my #365Movies challenge. I really look forward to that first scene of the film. What am I going to see? How much will be revealed? How is it going to tie in to the rest of the film? This montage is very interesting in that is shows how the director really pieces the movie together. It's all there for a reason. What I see is the major contrast and similarities from the beginning to the end. You don't really see it when you're watching it, but when put side-by-side it all comes together.
