Hi lads,Geordie Sam here,(spoiler alert,don't read if you don't know the film)
can I just say(imho) I think the ambiguous ending to Angels With Dirty Faces is THE BEST of all time,simply because it can NEVER be resolved one way or the other.Did "Rocky" go to the gas chamber "faking" his cowardice, like he was asked to,or did he really "BOTTLE IT" and crumble.We will never know.
I for one think (and want to think) he was doing it for the good of the "lads".
Sam.

Along the same lines, what do you think of Inception?

Best ending? So many candidates...

Rigth off the bat I could say "One flew over the cuckoo's nest", but there are so many possible choices...

I won't say it's the best ending, but it is one of my all time favorite movies which had a great impact on me as a kid. In 1959 my Mom and I rode the streetcar and bus from where we lived to downtown Dallas to watch this at the Majestic Theater.

Too many to name, Sam, but one that comes to mind immediately is Casablanca.

I forgot about K-Pax, a very underappreciated film in my opinion.

Best ending ever? Oh that's easy. Thelma and Louise. I hated that movie, and I hated both characters. Having them kill themselves was the best thing that could have happened, it just should have happened during the opening credits so everyone could have gone right back home.

That is a movie I never had a desire to see, Doug, so thanks for letting me know that my intuition was right. Thumbsup
