Another iconic ending that still manages to retain its impact despite being the subject of so many parodies since it was first released, the ambiguity only adds to the climax of Thelma & Louise.

Ridley Scott’s road trip buddy movie is a character piece first and foremost, as we get to know the two title heroines and their motivations as they wind up on the run from the law.

Not willing to surrender without going out in a blaze of glory, Thelma & Louise ends with them driving a car directly into the Grand Canyon, leaving their ultimate fate entirely up to us to decide.
