    This comment is directed towards people who didn’t care for the ending. Listen. I didn’t care for the ending either when I first saw it, which was when it was released into theaters in ‘07. I was in eighth grade at the time, so I hadn’t been quite exposed to the world yet. I don’t think I even understood what the film was really even about. Just a few days ago, I decided to watch it again and sweet Jesus, what a movie it is. Yes, it has all the elements of a great crime thriller. Yes, if you look at it solely as a source of entertainment, the ending does fall flat in that respect. But if you watch it for its themes, which deal with the nature of violence, the lack of morality in today’s people and the overall degenerative state of the world, then it is a masterpiece. Plain and simple. It is so world weary and cynical that it almost has a nihilistic message, which seems to be present in a lot of the Coen brothers' films, and the ending only adds to what it’s all about. Watch it again from that standpoint. It is a pure masterpiece of filmmaking. 7 years 3 months ago
