10 cloverfield lane (dan trachtenberg, 2016, effects by kelvin optical).

possibly? my favorite shot in the movie? still? the symbolic heft of this shot, alone, makes every complaint about this aspect of the movie seem trite and pointless.

caught between real nausea and fictional horrors, having survived reality, our heroine takes stock of the situation she finds herself in, and she finds the fictional horrors (just a fucked-up special effect!) much more awesome, and simultaneously much more easily conquered.
