    Smdh, Goodman's character in Barton Fink is the Devil. That shows the Devil essentially trying to claim Barton's soul in exchange for finishing his script.

                The ending for enemy is basically simply put as copies intertwine with each other, each have attractions with each other's mate and cheat their own, all that and a ton of spiders that represent feminism. That needs Aton of explaining.

                  I hate open endings. In fact I hate them so much I don't even watch movies tagged as "mystery".

                          People were really confused by the ending of The Dark Knight Rises? As you pointed out, it was pretty clear if you paid any attention at all.

                                  lol I'd be willing to bet a majority of the population (by and large) have ZERO clue what the ending meant in Donnie Darko while understanding most of the endings of this film. Just because it was 'abstract' or 'up to opinion' doesn't mean it was confusing if stylistically designed that way.

                                      The bird man ending has to be the ending that has made me the happiest of all the movie endings in all my life, I love the way of how when Sam see’s her father flying through the sky, making her enter into a delusional reality that her father is still alive flying with super powers and making her bond with him even more stronger than before gives me a smile all the time whenever I think about it, it’s always makes me happy to see the fact that he has succeeded on making himself a real super hero to the eyes of his daughter and to see that she now is on the same direction he was

                                                            There's nothing ambiguous at the end of Cormac McCarthy's novel, _No Country for Old Men_ . In a word, Anton Chigurh wins. Moss and his wife both die, the Sheriff narrowly escapes becoming one more of Chigurh's victims in the deceased Moss's motel room, and retires from a world he's no longer capable of coping with. Chigurh recovers the money from the vent in Moss's room. At that point you'd be forgiven for thinking that Chigurh wanted the money for himself. He does not. Chigurh's view of the world is confirmed, as is his status as a murderous poltergeist who can walk through it mostly unscathed. In a sense, this is like the endings to some of his other books, especially _Blood Meridian_ in which the character the Judge seems to dance through life, always acting on his own inscrutable motives with results that are frequently lethal to other people, while being, himself, almost ageless and timeless and unconquerable. In that way both the Judge and Chigurh are mythological creatures in misleadingly conventional (non-supernatural) stories. In Chigurh's case, the novel ends with his, having recovered from his injuries in the car wreck, returning the cash to the people who hired him to find it, minus his "expenses." He essentially tells them he works for them now, and it's implied that he's not asking them, he's telling them. To what future ends, it's not stated nor implied. While the truncated ending works better for the movie, anyone who knows McCarthy's writing knows that he ends the book more bluntly and brutally and much more concisely than even the movie ended.

                                                            Honestly, given the totality of McCarthy's work so far, the ending of _The Road_ however sad it is represents probably the most optimistic of any of his stories. Yes, really. Which is saying something considering that _The Road_ is a story so brutal that that even _No Country..._ is tame by comparison. Believe me when I tell you, not all of the novel _The Road_ made it into the movie.

I literally ball my eyes out the minute he looks up at the vanilla sky and says “Let them up there read my mind” and then he looks down and Penelope Cruz is standing there so beautifully lit and the beautiful Sigur Ros song starts playing. Ahhh I’m getting chills just typing it out. If anyone needs ANY kind of explanation for Vanilla Sky, let me know. I can tell you everything. I’ve seen it at least 10x and the original just as much

His wish is granted at the end of the movie. I think that it would have tarnished his legacy if he had survived also.
