Just finished watching Vanilla Sky. What a great ending with great music by the Icelandic band "Sigar Ros"

How in the Hell could I forget the greates ending (and the biggest anticlimax) ever: Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Life of Brian has a pretty memorable ending also Grin

I own two SIGOR ROS cd's. They're a great band.

Once again TB, you exhibit fine taste. Have you listened to Mum, another
Icelandic band, whose music was used in Wicker Park (the scene where
Hartnett follows Kruger into the dance studio and she begins dancing to
this music)?

It's that one where those three guys have a three way stand off in a cemetery. Forgot what it was called.

I don't think it can qualify as an "ending" if there is a 5-minute or so scene that comes afterward. IMO "ending" means the last scene, or something that takes place in the last minute or so of the movie

Actually, everything after and including the ecstasy of gold sequence is considered the ending for me. It's where they find the treasure, battle it out, and stab each other in the back one final time.

There are various narrative structure theories that I don't really remember, but basically, you consider "ending" to be the climax and what follows, while drinkanddestroy thinks it's just that final word.
I think both are equally plausible.

The climax is not the ending. Unless you're having sex

From a formal point of view, probably not.
From a viewer's point of view, very easily.

It's Peter Riegert calling because he misses everybody in Scotland and wants to come back. There's no ambiguity whatsoever. Did you watch this when you were 8 years old or something?

I rest my case.

The climax is not usually the ending, unless there is no denouement. In GBU the three-way duel is the climax; the reprise of the hanging trick is the denouement. I think it is helpful to maintain the distinction.

Well, thanks for clearing that up; as I said, I don't really remember it all. Plus I suspect I've mostly encountered narrative theories in terms of literature anyway, where it's a bit different, and probably less clear-cut.
