    For those of you who have seen this amazing movie I want to get people's thoughts on the ending. Did Edward Norton really follow his fathers words and escape out west? Or did he simply accept his fate and the whole scenario playing out in his head was simply him dreaming as they went along?

    I guess one's interpretation could be like saying whether the glass is half empty or half full. I wanna knoiw what y'all think.
  2. The fact that it remains unresolved made it the best, most satisfying ending I have seen in a very long time.

    Agreed, El Mamerro.

    I would like to think that he escaped, but not knowing makes it better.

    Its based on a book, right? I think I'll go get it tomorrow.

    i kind of got the feeling that Edward Norton was day dreaming, though I would like to believe that he took off west...
  5. I have the same feeling pedro does...it was obvious to me in the ending that it was reality that prevailed over the fantasy mood the fathers talk had....to be perfectly honest i didnt really liked that film....when i saw 'do the right thing' i thought i was a good movie...everything else i watched later on plain sucked....25th hour seemed like a dope movie and gradually turned to nothing special imo. Despite all that, i love the movie for the "fuck you" scene...thats awesome and thats what dude has done in all his movies at some point.

    i didn't see this movie yet, but i heard that it was verry good.

    i especially want to see it for:

    I just finished watching it.

    The ending felt like it represented a fantasy more than a reality, and the entire end sequence wasn't "definite", but I think the rest of the movie suggested that it wasn't intended to be the final word of the story. Either way, the filmmakers did a great job of making what could have been a mundane subject into a really entertaining couple of hours.

    It's tough to get a really "introspective" movie like that made in mainstream Hollywood, especially with big-name actors, so it's cool to see it playing on cable in my house late at night. Rosario Dawson really looked and acted lovely, too.

    I have to admit the 'fuck you" scene was pretty fucking funny....but, c'mon Spike did you really have to do it?

    Also, yeah he was daydreaming..

    P.S. Rosario Dawson looked real HOT in this movie!

    I loved this movie so much, the second I put down the book, I put the DVD in. Effyou-the book is pretty much word for word with the movie. Except the last page, I cant really remember exactly tho.
