I just watched James Gray's latest film, The Immigrant, and among other things I felt it had the most masterful final shot/image of any film I have seen in a very long time. It reminded me of probably my favorite closing shot of all time in Antonioni's The Passenger then got me thinking about some of the other all time great closing shots in the history of the medium.
Among my other faves are:
Kiarostami's Through the Olive Trees
Truffaut's The Soft Skin
Rafelson's Five Easy Pieces
