Top 10 films and reasons for choice
Some opening scenes to films are so arresting and brilliant that they stay in the mind. In most cases, the rest of the film is not an anticlimax. My favourite 5 list features films that have great beginnings to great films. Of course that is not everyone’s view, a read a critic who said that Lars von Trier should have quit after the prologue for Melancholia, – witty but not supported by viewing.
