Ten Great Death Scenes and Why We Should Be Glad For Them

Farewell to Arms Death SceneWhat makes a good death scene? Obit, a website that endeavors to examine "life through the lens of death," examines the art of the movie death scene, selecting their favorites reaching back to the death of Catherine in "A Farewell to Arms" from 1932. This is not merely list candy, but neither is the treatment of the list particularily insightful. Still, the cinema is where most of us encounter death first and, if we're lucky, most frequently. The Obit list best serves as a perhaps unwitting hat tip to the filmakers who have embraced this opportunity with grace and gravity.
