Which is also the movie with the best beginning.

IMHO no one has surpassed that movie yet in terms of *innovation*. The idea that the STAR WARS trilogy jumpstarted modern American cinema, action movies/blockbusters/etc. is just bullllshit, man. Lucas copped everything from the last seven minutes of 2001.

I'll put it in old-SAT form for you:

Kubrick is to Hendrix as Lucas is to Jimmy Page.

Enough of my rant. Other endings I like, or rather, was strongly impressed by:

THE PLANET OF THE APES (original Heston-version)
BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES
KILL BILL, VOL. 1
BACK TO THE FUTURE
SPARTACUS
THE GRADUATE (I love that they look so awkward at the end, like, you just know their life is going to suck.)
EASY RIDER
PRETTY WOMAN (Shut up, everyone that comes to Hollywood got a dream.)
GONE WITH THE WIND

That's all I can think of for now.
