Movie Clip Wednesday - Worst Movie Ending
Looks like Boxer may never come back as hostess (but at least she's back playing), so the Milk River Madman is graciously continuing to host the Movie Clip Wednesday Meme where everyone picks a clip from their favorite movies based on a weekly theme. This week's theme is WORST MOVIE ENDINGS. This is kind of tough to write about without spoiling the ending. I'll give it a whirl but I'm going to leave out a lot of plot details.
A movie that immediately comes to mind (and it's a little, obscure Indy film) is 2003's Swimming Pool. It stars Charlotte Rampling as a murder mystery writer who goes on vacation in France. It also features Ludivine Sagnier who is unbelievably hot (and very naked) in this movie. For all you Mr. Skin fans out there, this movie has some great nudity including Rampling, who was in her late 50s at the time. By the time you get to the end of this movie though, you will have no idea what actually happened or what is true or made up in the mind of Rampling's character.
After I saw this movie, I went on IMDB and other chatboards to see if I missed something. Turns out I got it right. Everyone else was as confused as I was. There are a number of theories on what happened including analysis of room colors where different events happen up to dream sequences and conspiracies. I liked this movie with a lot of quirky, odd things and scenes - up until the end. I like movies that leave a little something to the imagination, but this left the whole ending to the imagination. I don't want to have to work that hard for my entertainment.
Here's the trailer because I couldn't find the ending:
I will definitely recommend that you watch it because the acting, storyline, the French countryside and nudity is very good, but be prepared to be confused at the end.
Wanna see more loser endings, then go over and see the Madman . He may actually leave you with a happy ending.
