What a let down.
At the end, the TV went black for half a minute.Remember when after Bobby got clipped, Tony was thinking about the time in the boat when Bobby asked him about death and Tony told him that you dont feel anything and everything turns black. "I wonder if you hear the one that gets you"
I've heard people saying that it was brilliant and it was: he showed that things in life do not always end neatly. Great point Chase made there. But when you develop characters with such depth and invoke our involvement as if we know them personally, you owe us some sort of finality. I can appreciate its brilliance intellectually, but I simply can't comprehend it emotionally.I liked it!
I thought it was brilliant.
Yeah, I understand that point. And I understand why some viewers want closure.
But I thought it was brilliant because of the suspense he was building was almost unbearable - it seemed the last 5 minutes took 15 - then the TV went black - I thought my cable was out - to leave you hanging and give you an ending you completely weren't expecting.
To me, it was the anticipation and expectation, not the conclusion that mattered.
It was the best piece of abstract art I've seen.
