Poll: Iconic Closing Shots in Movies

These were the very last shots that we saw before that screen faded to black... and we haven't been able to shake them since. As plots and character arcs wrapped up, these final frames were able to satisfy, shock or elicit some other type of emotion from us. These shots showed us how one can never underestimate the power of a send off.

Which of these iconic closing shots in a film is your favorite?
