Richard Linklater says in the Criterion booklet that it has probably the most cinematic ending in movie history. He hit the nail right on the head. The final minute just blew me away.
Not much of anything going on here. I'm sure that's the point, but...meh.
That ending, wow.
James Taylor's character may have been better if he just never spoke. Certainly, the one somewhat lengthy monologue he's got in the entire film, he flubbed so completely as to make me wonder why they even kept it in the movie.
