The Usual Suspects - possibly the best ending to any film I've seen.

the greatest trick i ever pulled was convincing the world i didnt exist... :D

usual suspects by a considerable margin...
You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don't
owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to
put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission,
don't even start asking for theirs.

Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo by a mile.

Shocked that people prefer a one-trick-pony. :S

Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo for me. I can see why it's losing though. It's a long, sprawling epic that moves very slowly. Maybe a generation gap thing? Hard to say. The Usual Suspects is darn fantastic in its own right though.
