For Sight & Sound magazine: The final shot of Shampoo

For the “Endings” column in the October issue of Sight & Sound magazine, I wrote about the final shot in Hal Ashby’s Shampoo. It’s one of my favorite final shots in cinema. (I pitched the piece before Criterion made its announcement that it would be releasing Shampoo. Serendipitous timing. Something in the air. Shampoo in the air.)

As much as I’ve written here, as much as I love Shampoo, I’ve never written about that final shot until now. Thanks to Sight & Sound for the opportunity.
