The Guardian Film Blog: Five of the Best Unhappy Endings

Something I wrote for the The Guardian last month. It was great coming up with the most sad and sick endings in film.


If you subscribe to the view that happy endings are too often used to satisfy audiences, there’s a good chance you’ll revel in endings that offer the complete opposite. Why conform to generating cheery satisfaction on a mass scale when you can leave audiences stunned, disgusted or bewildered? Some of Hollywood’s most powerful final scenes are also some of the most emotionally unsettling.

What are yours? Read the rest on the Guardian Film Blog.
