I wouldn’t say the bad guy necessarily “wins” in “Cuckoo’s Nest”. While McMurphy does die, it’s not in vain: Nurse Ratched seems a little softer after being throttled by McMurphy and Chief finds the strength to escape.

Same - Vote goes to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975)

What about Roger 'Verbal' Kint from The Usual Suspects ?
Would vote for him if he would appear on the list.

The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
Of course in this movie one villain is caught (the serial killer) while the other villain (Hannibal Lecter) escapes), so in a way it's a split outcome.

Congratulations with the poll! But I’m surprised by this poll, especially now it’s featured on the homepage. I think it contains huge spoilers. That’s why I didn’t want to see the list.

All the films are 4 or more years old. The spoiler issue will not be a great problem in this case. Plus, I didn't mention any written plot twist in my poll.

I saw your reply on this thread. Why you delete your replies specially on my PS threads most of the times? There's nothing wrong in sharing your opinion. Please don't do that.

In the first poll, you should have included the Godfather films, because evil wins. I hate them, mostly because they're boring, but they do fit.

We know you hate them.

Now, they're supposed to be criminals but the whole movie is about a system... oh boy, forget about it, yes they're bad, they're evil, they're the devils personified.

And technically, if Hannibal Lecter is in the list, Vito Corleone or Michael Corleone could have been there. Hannibal was a bad guy but not THE bad guy of the film, Buffalo Bill was.

But we're generally indifferent to what bores us, if they were really boring, you wouldn't insist so much on how you hate the film.
