arty answer - A Moment of Innocence
Sleuth (the 70's one)
the there's only two actors in it then the who the hells this guy thing.
is my stock answer for this.
`thats what tipped it over the edge for me
Watched The Godfather again the other night, that final shot of the door closing on Diane Keaton is pretty fucking perfect.
perfect song choice at the end. An ending to die for.
and it was a gift from nature
The wicker man ending is stunning and the final shot had an element of kismet about it
Thought the ending of Cross of iron was just right
All the man with no name westerns have great closing music and shots
The Good the bad and the ugly final scene with Tuco on the cross is great.
cos i know not to read the thread on the basis that i have not seen every single film in history
because he says 'as you wish'
he says 'as you wish' and gives a knowing smile like 'yes, I'm him'
the kid is a little shit and is rude to his grandpa and says he doesn't want to have the book read to him, but then he enjoys it so his grandpa says 'as you wish' to a) acknowledge that they both enjoyed the story and b) to tell him he loves/forgives him for being a little shit.
they leave it hanging like in life of pi, is it him? isn't it him? YOU DECIDE!
the princess only found out the dread pirate roberts was westley because he shouted as you wish when he rolled down the hill
they knew that when they made the film. It's that 2 kinds of people in the world thing, those who think the grandpa is westley and those who don't.
Absolutely killer blow at the end of the film.
is possibly the most moving ending of any film
The Usual Suspects
obviously it's become over-done and too well known and all that jazz recently, but seeing The Sixth Sense for the first time, at the time it came out, i don't think i've done as much of a WOW at a final act since
it was pretty powerful at the time.
now pretty much every second film is "omg they were dead all along!!"
and it got spoilered ages and ages ago....and many many times since, it wasn't just an accident....its like its gonna be prespoilt for most people now, who didnt see it originally
that I was told and then forgot and was still like WOW :)
and say "well I was glad when it ended anyway!!!!111".
Because I'm a funny guy.
at the end of Terminator 2
Same with Friday Night Lights.
at the end of 'A History Of Violence'
that they show in the old people's home in the Simpsons
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (sutherland version)
Don't look now (sutherland version)
Mostly because it's the crappest, most annoying ending of all time. But that's exactly what they want, so it's quite enjoyable.
The last scene is heartbreaking
We both know that Pt 2 is the best film ever made, however....
.... I reckon you're remembering it wrong. The final scene is actually that strange 'it's-pa's-birthday' flashback scene with the family round the dinner table, not the shot of Pacino sitting in the chair which fades to black. Never understood why Coppola chose to do that.
Fucking amazing, I love it!
...we find ourselves in disagreement! :)
butch cassidy & the sundance kid
obviously. The whole shebang really, once you skip the boring first bit and get into the robbery and car chase.
I can honestly say I never expected that
That look between them and then that still really powerful ending.
If I start listing I won't stop. So I won't start
A great anti-ending is The Death Of Mr Lazarescu though
All the buildings collapse
'You met me at a very strange time in my life'
-->#Where is my mind#
Dead Poets' Society, but the correct answer is of course
The Wicker Man
Beau Travail- completely absurd, euphoric, tragic. Cinema at its best, bringing disparate elements together to create something completely new.
Also love the ending to Heat. There are some people on here who think its a mediocre film. Where are those bellends?
Happiness wins though, hands down.
i never expected that killing spree. it was just so visceral, so bloody, and red running through the prison on fire covered in petrol with noone left to put him out was just the most intense finale of any film i've seen.
This scene (spoilers obviously) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDVm8f6kxXQ -- there's something so moving about it, how much is said just in how the characters look at one another; in my view, it's an absolutely perfect way to end that film.
I had a similar thing with 'Frances Ha', too.
On a different note, the ending to 'Mulholland Dr.' is visceral (saw it at the cinema not long ago; incredible stuff) and also emotionally intense in the context of what the film's (generally accepted to be) about... Badalamenti's 'Love Theme' in that film is one of my favourite of his Lynch soundtrack works.

Sort of a non-ending in a way, and I know some people hate it, but it really gets me.
Tommy Lee Jones <3
Also I like the bit in last of the Mohicans where the sister jumps
I also remember thinking ooh at tag end of 12 monkeys
Those names at the end are the people who worked on the movie.
