Scenes of 2015

The best scenes of 2015.

Based on UK release date in the order I saw them. Although The Case Of Hana and Alice has yet to be released in the UK but screened at festivals.

  • Whiplash

    The opening scene wastes no time in setting up the two characters and their relationship, I wish more films would just get to the point.

    However it was the ending that convinced me this was a five star film.

  • Ex Machina

    Perhaps the moment of Ex Machina where things really passed the turing test was when Ava asked Caleb to close his eyes.

    When Nathan tears up the dancefloor is a pretty special moment as well.

  • Big Hero 6

    Just about any moment when Baymax is on screen but let's go for the batteries running out.

  • Appropriate Behavior

    The final scene on the train is a great ending.

  • The Tale of the Princess Kaguya

    Fleeing the palace.

  • Still Alice

    Alice finds her own video message

  • Wild Tales

    So many great moments to choose from the freeze frame title shot came close but it's the climax of the road rage sequence that stands out the most.

  • It Follows

    The opening sequence is a wonderful condensed version of the entire film.

  • Mommy

    Yes, that moment. I knew it was coming and it still completely floored me.

  • Girlhood

    "Let's try something new" followed by crazy golf.

...plus 8 more. View the full list on Letterboxd.
