Best Movie Ending Ever(t)?

I know some of you out there are inclined to argue that Synecdoche, New York is entirely too depressing a movie, but I have to maintain that out of that depressing quality springs something beautiful, and it's not much more apparent than in the film's final five minutes. Charlie Kaufman deserves all kinds of awards for his writing here... I've never before seen anyone get so close to touching the raw truth behind the human condition.

Bravo, good sir!

we all know the best movie ending ever, AJ. Sleepaway Camp far and away. But in all seriousness (not that i'm joking about that being the best movie ending ever), it is good to ponder the best movie endings. like, American Beauty has a pretty good ending. hmmm. you should write some others you like too.
