Poll: Face Reveal Scenes in Movies

These films were filled with action, suspense and some considerable character development, but many were shielding us from knowing the faces of one of its chief subjects. And when that moment finally came, it was often climactic and surprising. Maybe it was finally unveiling the ugliness the character always tried to hide or maybe it was a subtle cue that the character, and their secrets, have now been, or will be, revealed in the story.
