What are your favorite film endings?

I really hate to use examples from Woody Allen films because I think he's a terrible pervert at best (and I don't watch his films anymore), but my favorite film endings happen to come from two of his films.

Deconstructing Harry

This is pure brilliance to me. A writer being applauded by the characters he created. The entire scene is film perfection in my opinion. I remember I used scenes from this film in a presentation for a class in college. Most of the scenes were filled with profanity and some with vulgarity. I remember I looked at my teacher's face during my presentation, and her jaw was on the floor. I thought I was in big trouble, but I actually got a decent grade. I had been inured to the vulgarity, I suppose.

Annie Hall

“I thought of that old joke. This guy goes to a psychiatrist and says, ‘Doc, my brother’s crazy. He thinks he’s a chicken.’ And the doctor says, ‘Well, why don’t you turn him in?’ And the guy says, ‘I would, but I need the eggs.’ Well, I guess that’s pretty much now how I feel about relationships. They’re totally irrational and crazy and absurd and . . . but I guess we keep going through it because most of us need the eggs.”

That's what it is, isn't it?

I find the end of "The Usual Suspects" fascinating. Watchng Verbal Kint slowly transform into Kaiser Sose as he walks away from the Police Station is a great scene.



I also like the ending of "Harold & Maude" where you think Harold is so distraught he is going to drive off the cliff but he doesn't. He decides to take Maude's advice, crashes his min-hearse and goes on with his life.



My third choice is "Casablanca" where we see Rick & Louis transform from an angry cynic and a "poor corrupt official" into two men who find something worth fighting for.



Good thread topic!

That's one of my favorites as well. Please don't take this is an insult because I have the utmost respect for you as a poster, and I agree with you completely here. I just think these are some great parodies of that.

Fallen was kinda cool in its portrayal of body jumping demons. The final scene has several twists back to back, with a final little gotya. If you've seen it, you get it...

Great movie! It was actually filmed on my street - about a block away. I remember seeing them prep for a night scene. I didn't know what movie they were filming at the time but it looked scary as hell in real life.

On a side note, I met the young couple who owned the house they used in the movie. They were paid an insane amount of money to vacate the property for a few weeks during filming. I think it was enough to cover their mortgage for the year...or something like that.

If you liked Fallen, you might like The Hidden, a sci fi twist to the same idea. Warning, not for the squeamish...
