How shall the new environment be programmed? It all happened so slowly that most men failed to realize that anything had happened at all.
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 story centers around a man and a woman who rebel against their rigidly controlled society. The following clip will obviously spoil the movie for you if you haven’t seen it already.
The music playing during the end credits is the first movement from Johann Sebastian Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, BWV 244.
