Thanks, I was impressed by the pic myself.
The movie was really really sad. The man kept making the same stupid decisions over and over. He was his own worst enemy and ruined every good thing that ever happened to him (outside of his career, which got fucked up too.) And as he got older and really started to figure out that your life isn’t defined by partying on weekends, and what you do for a living, but by HOW you live your life and being a better person, he STILL can’t make the right choices.
The open ended ending was irrelevant. Dead or alive, he had already lost everything he ever had, ruined anything good in his life, and any hope of finding love and happiness was gone. [/quote]
WTF…was this sent over to the Taliban. Did this replace Waterboarding. Why would someone watch that. The only 2 people I know of that should see movies like this are Bill Gate and Oprah. Because they are so rich and happy they need this kind of shyt to bring them down to earth so they won’t spend all day diving into there money pit and paying kids to run around town and hit the lesser rich over the head with ripe oranges.
I took it as a story of an individual who craved glory at the expense of all else. Glory that seemingly only youth could provide. When he reached the point in his life where he had to deal with things beyond his powers, it forced him to look in the mirror and at his mistakes. In the end, he realized that having lost everything, he still had a chance at the one thing that sustained his existence - glory. It didn’t matter what he learned along the way. There was nothing to apply it to - nothing to correct. And like CB said, life or death at the end was irrelevant. THIS was his moment of glory.
