Came on this morning to mention this one. I keep forgetting Veronica Cartwright is in that movie. Her characters have been through some wringers, especially at the hands/claws of aliens: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUXHB5U-Vl4

"No!!! What happens next???" - my reaction the first time I saw The Birds as the car slowly drives away and "The End" shows up.

Actually it doesn't say "The End" - it just .... ends.

Can't remember the exact final frame, but the last shot of Brazil works pretty well.

The last shot of Cop Hater (based on the first 87th Precinct novel). The killer is taken off to be processed, and the cops just continue going their more mundane tasks - answering phones, doing paperwork, etc - as the credits roll. It's like the movie never really starts or ends, we just kind of sit in while they work on one case.

I loved the end of Edge of Tomorrow when Tom Cruise approaches Emily Blunt to explain the time loop for the last time, then he just pauses and chuckles.

That's the shot I came to post. Totally awesome how the last two words are spoken after the cut to black.

The end of The Shining showing an old photo from the hotel's history; a ball from 1921, As the camera zooms in, we see Jack Nicholson among the revelers. I've seen the movie so many times I don't always wait through the whole shot but the first time I saw it, it stayed with me for days. He doesn't look particularly creepy (like poor wretched Carol in Repulsion<shiver>) but the implication . . .he has been absorbed by the hotel? He's always been part of it? Great way to end it.

Osama. The final shot -- of a man taking a bath -- might be the most horrifying scene in the history of film. Though it's meaningless out of context.

Lot of great ones mentioned already, particularly 2001: A Space Odyssey, Monsters Inc., The Godfather, Inception and The Third Man.

I would also nominate:

Dark City - A man and a woman on a pier, overlooking a sun-drenched ocean. The perfect ending, given all that has come before.

Breaker Morant - Two coffins being filled.

Notorious - Two spies drive away to safety, and the bad guy is called back inside a house to his certain doom.

The 39 Steps - The two fugitives, finally vindicated, take each other's hand.

All the President's Men - Woodward and Bernstein keep working in the newsroom as the teletype prints out the later key events.

Glory - The casualties of the attack on Battery Wagner are buried in a common grave, and then we see their monument on Boston Common.

My favorite has always been the ending of "Electra Glide in Blue" with Robert Blake. His character, Big John Wintergreen, gets blown away by double shotgun blasts out of a van he is driving after. All he wants to do is return something but the bad guys think the jig is up. He slides along the highway and manages to sit up as he dies. Then a looong camera shot out the back of the van as it drives away. Big John fades into the distance as the credits start.

Skip to 1:27 of this clip. It does not show the whole shot, it cuts off way too soon.

Too late to edit post #68, here is a description of the final shot from the IMDB:

"After Wintergreen is killed the camera pulls away up the road for three minutes before a freeze-frame dissolving to black and white for an additional two-plus minutes before credits finally roll."

At the end of Carrie, the camera looks down on a screaming, hysterical Amy Irving after another one of her hand-out-of-the-ground nightmares, her mother trying to console her, then cut to black.

Goodfellas - Henry Hill, in a voiceover, bitches about having to be a "regular schnook" in Witness Protection as he picks up the morning paper off his doorstep. Cut to Joe Pesci's character, Tommy, firing a gun six times at the camera in a homage to The Great Train Robbery. Cut back to a bored Henry closing his front door as he returns to his now-boring existence. Cue Sid Vicious singing "My Way" as the screen goes black and the ending titles inform us what happened to the main characters.

Of course! Makes you wonder how much Shelley affected the writer and the production
people! There must be other direct references to "Ole Percy" but this will do to prove his
influence continues...

Nice work, EH!

A really jarring final shot comes at the end of X: The Man With The X_ray Eyes, where Ray Milland's character ends up at a church revival and tears out his own eyes off-screen. The final shot is a freeze frame of him screaming at the camera with two empty sockets where his eyes used to be.

Saw this on TV late at night when I was a young teen and it shocked the hell out of me...

I remember that! Not sure if I covered my own eyes at the end or have chosen to forget it. I remember the self eye gouging but not that they showed it.

Another ending that only makes sense in context, where it's chilling.

My recollection, which could be wrong as it has been over 25 years since I saw the film, and I'm at work so I can't look for the clip on-line, was that the last sentence was either on its own card, or appeared after a gap following the other text. Really emphasized the utter futility and stupidity of the girls' tragic actions, which they undertook so as not to be separated by their parents.

Walkabout - The Girl's husband coming home and telling her the 'exciting' news about his job and her with a far off look imagining what could have been. Then the credits rolling over the shot of her and her brother's school clothes on sticks. One of the most beautiful endings to a great film.

A simple yet oh-so-brilliant ending to one of my fave RP flicks. Neat jazz score in it too.



Ok not the final scene, but next-to-final one, so give me a mulligan on this because seriously - this 7-minute tracking shot, from The Passenger, is ridiculous.

Quite fascinating lowdown on "the shot", from wiki
(I'd recommend checking out the first link before seeing how Antonioni pulled off the amazingly sneaky shot)

Quote:
The location of the hotel is stated to be Osuna in the film. However, the bullring at the edge of the square is recognisably that of the one in the Spanish town of Vera, in the province of Almería.[3][4] In a DVD commentary, decades later, Nicholson said Antonioni built the entire hotel so as to get this shot.

Since the shot was continuous, it was not possible to adjust the lens aperture as the camera left the room and went into the square. Hence the footage had to be taken in the very late afternoon near dusk, in order to minimise the lighting contrast between the brightness outside and that in the room.

The square was windy and the crew needed stillness to ensure smooth camera movement. Antonioni tried putting the camera in a sphere so the wind might catch it less, but this would not fit through the window. In the scene, it appears that the bars may have been adjusted to be removed as the camera approached them.[citation needed]

The camera ran on a ceiling track in the hotel room and when it came outside the window, was meant to be picked up by a hook suspended from a giant crane nearly 30 metres high. A system of gyroscopes was fitted on the camera to steady it during the switch from this smooth indoor track to the crane outside. Meanwhile, the bars on the window had been given hinges. When the camera reached the window and the bars were no longer in the field of view, they were swung away to either side. At this time the camera's forward movement had to stop for a few seconds as the crane's hook grabbed it and took over from the track. To hide this, the lens was slowly and smoothly zoomed until the crane could pull the camera forward.[Note 1] Then the cameraman walked the camera in a circle around the square, giving the crew time to shut the window bars before the camera returned to look through the window from the outside this time. Antonioni directed the scene from a van by means of monitors and microphones, talking to assistants who communicated his instructions to the actors and operators.


screw it - that whole last paragraph needed to be bolded

I see this one differently. To me the original TTOP123 was a terrific and somewhat disturbing thriller that was undermined by far too many humorous one-liners. All the "light moments" kept yanking me out of the picture, and Matthau's face in the doorway immediately after "gesundheit" struck me as the wrongest note possible for the fadeout.
Of course this hasn't kept me from watching the film repeatedly since I saw it first-run in the theater - it's been in my VHS > DVD library forever.

I think I remember reading, back in the 60's, that those last four words were in the original film but were cut at the last minute.

Just another final shot to offer:

Taxi Driver - Travis Bickle finishes dropping off Betsy at her building and drives off in his cab. He looks in the rear view mirror a time or two as she walks into the building and continues driving. Then a few moments later, the saxophone playing in the soundtrack is interrupted for a brief moment as Travis's eyes dart back to the rear view mirror almost in a panic. Then, he continues driving on.

Maybe it's just a final hallucination as he's bleeding out in the fleabag hotel after the big shootout?

The Mission, both the pre-credits shot, and the post-credits shot. (This was long before post-credit stingers became common.)

The Portuguese and Spanish teamed up to destroy the mission. Both the pacifist priest (Jeremy Irons) and the warlike priest (Robert De Niro) are dead meat. The Native Americans dig through the rubble to get a few belongings, before heading off to the jungle. One of them salvages one item from western civilization that he thought was worth keeping: a musical instrument.


Young Sherlock Holmes. Throughout the film, we are introduced to Holmes, Watson, and Lestrade. Throughout the closing credits, one side of the screen shows a horse-drawn sleigh travelling along a snowy road. After the credits, it pulls up to a hotel. The movie's villain, who apparently did not die in the film's climax, checks in and signs the register, using his new alias: Moriarty.
