Top Ten : Downbeat Endings
I recently did a top ten downbeat movie endings for the good people at Top 10 Films:
Sometimes, everybody loves a happy ever after. The guy gets the girl, the hero rides off into the sunset, the man realises he wants to live after all and his angel pal gets his wings. You know the kind of stuff I mean. It’s heart-warming and sends you off with a smile on your face. Sometimes however, if you’re anything like me, there’s nothing like a proper downbeat and depressing ending to round off a film. An emotional gut punch that reminds you that not every story can be a fairytale, is often more powerful than even the happiest of happy endings. It can often leave you walking out of the cinema in a shocked stony silence but that’s merely testament to a real emotional impact.
