I could list a whole bunch of good movie endings. But THX 1138 (George Lucas, 1971), a dystopian science fiction classic (featuring Robert Duvall as THX,) is my favourite one right now.

The music playing during the end credits is the first movement from Johann Sebastian Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, BWV 244.
