One of the reasons we fall in love with movies is the way we feel when we walk out of the theater or when we turn off the TV—and a film's last image cements that emotional connection. Here's a collection of those "last looks" from some of the more noteworthy movies of recent memory.

For many, many more, head over to the The Final Image for a veritable warehouse of cinematic treasures. But for now, take a look at how filmmakers like Stanley Kubrick, Peter Jackson, James Cameron, George Lucas and Sam Raimi decided to end their films.

Just so you know, however, some of these images might contain slight spoilers, so proceed at your own risk.
