What are some examples of movies that open with their concluding scene or climax and then work backwards from there?

One of my students is arguing in a paper that the best films conceal the plot's final outcome until the end of the film, and I'm looking for some counter-examples. I'm sure there are multiple movies that start with the outcome or climax and then shift back in time to explain how the characters arrived there; I just can't seem to think of any at the moment!
