  1. petitesoeur Says:

    “The End” of the film &/or the protaganists in: Thelma and Louise, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Lawrence of Arabia, 400 Blows

  2. P. Andrew Says:

    1. Thelma & Louise
    2. Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid
    3. Lawrence of Arabia
    4. Truffaut Classic w/ his alter-ego character

    Similarities? The characters are all rebels, anti-establishment figures, anti-heroes. Even in their finals scenes they will not surrender to authority or convention and exit on their own terms.

  3. movienerd Says:

    Thelma & Louise; Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid; Lawrence of Arabia; & The 400 Blows. Didn’t all of these shots end with freeze-frames?

  4. Chris Chang, Film Comment Says:

    All three of you are almost right: These are all freeze frames (and last frames) from well-known films. But the second to last image is NOT from Lawrence of Arabia.

    Hint: Australia

  5. andyw Says:

    1 – Thelma & Louise
    2 – Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid
    3 – Gallipoli
    4 – 400 blows
    all freeze frames/final images
