I personally like movies where you draw your own conclusion.

I don't like it when you are spoon fed everything, it inhibits us from using our imagination, and thinking for ourselves.

Now I don't think it should be ambiguous to the point of being lazy - you can distinguish between poor writing, and bad editing (and sometimes laziness), and the director simply wanting to leave the viewers to draw their own conclusions.

Lol I know the type you speak of. . But I really did think that was a great movie.

I don't see what's so ambiguous about it. To me it's pretty clear what happened: SPOILERS BELOW. . . .


























Tommy Lee Jones pussied out (he knew Sugah mang' was in there). . . Sugah mang wasted Carla Jean. . . He crashes the car, and dipsets. . . As far as how you want to take what the ending means in a literal, and metaphorical sense - it's up to you. I saw it as simple as the title: This is no country for old men. . .

It was a great 3/4 of a movie. The last 1/4 the film just devolves into a non-happening. I really didn't need the Coen Bros or a few hours in a theater to tell me some MUNDANE sh*t about the way life is.

I liked the Sopranos ending because it left the possibility of the show returning one day.

Haha I feel ya. . . It definitely wasn't anything groundbreaking in that regard (some deeper understanding of life).

Why wasn't the ending great?

An old man comes to realise that he has no place in a world where nothing is valued and nothing is guaranteed. It fits in with the nihilistic tone of the movie. In fact the ending is rather arbitrary in No Country For Old Men.

Would you have preferred Chigurh to have busted into his farm before making him and his wife flip a coin before painting the walls with his air-gun?

Hell that would have been cool, but then again, the impact of the movie would have been lost.

I never actually thought of what the ending should have been. But, I at least believe it should have had an actual ending. "An old man comes to realise that he has no place in the world where nothing is valued and nothing is guaranteed." Sorry, but that is a message that did not need to be sent and keeps the movie from being the four star "masterpiece" folks like to pretend it is.

For the record, "Fargo" is the Coen Bros' masterpiece.
