The Windshield Shot, Possibly The Ultimate Classic

Just a staple of cinema, you may not have even noticed it.

Have you ever stopped to think about how many movies feature a shot of one or more characters as seen through the windshield of the car they’re traveling in? You probably haven’t, and the reason is because it’s the one shot which nearly every director making a movie with cars in it uses. It’s just so omnipresent that we never really stop to think about how often we’re seeing it, sort of like the line “you just don’t get it, do you?”, which is also in everything.

But here we bring you a compilation video from Supercut, featuring some of the most recognizable windshield shots to ever grace the silver screen. So many that none need to be more than a second or two to bring a smile to the face, reminisce and remind us how great movies are.
