Films with some of the best twist endings. Suggestions welcome; just don't spoil the ending in the comments :)
Denzel has a very memorable quote in the film that somewhat "foreshadows" the "twist ending" in the film:
"We are guided through our life with faith, not by our sight."
Maybe I find it deeply moving, because I'm somewhat of a heavy religious person. The film attacks "belief" and "faith" in a way that very few films have. I really touched me deeply, but for others ... as you said, its an excellent thriller.
By the way, I drew inspiration from this list to create my own "twist" list. I enjoy twist endings as well.
I like to think I'm pretty smart when it comes to film ... and when I film pulls the rug out from under you to catch you off guard, and make rethink what you just saw ... I enjoy that feeling of a film outsmarting you when you think you have it figured out.
Still, great list.
Oh one more thing .... big ups to having the SAW series on there.
I'm a huge SAW fan ... best twist endings of the series were 1 (still the best one), 2, 4, and 6. I expected the ending in 7, while a lil weak, and poorly executed, it still wrapped up the series nicely.
Les Diaboliques has a cracker of a twist
And Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Sutherland)
The Mist! Killer ending, completely knocked the wind out of me.
Oh, Dressed to Kill, they're all coming now!
What was the twist in The Empire Strikes Back again?
I know it's so well known that it's hardly a twist now, but I think it's referring to the parental reveal.
@Ben Thanks for the suggestions! They're all in now!
@Richard The twist is SPOILER SPOILER
Leia calls Han Solo a scruffy looking nerfherder. Did'nt see that coming. The twist that ends all twists. It will go in the history books as probably the most shocking thing in a film ever.
Who's scruffy looking?!
