Movies, Endings and Explanations

Recently, we watched “Shutter Island” at home. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio and is a psychological thriller. Another movie we had watched a few weeks ago was “No Country for Old Men.” What was common to both movies was the need to go and search the web for explanations on the endings!

The movies were at multiple levels, and one had to constantly think of the characters and what was happening. Things were not always what they seemed to be — unlike, let’s say “Singham” or another typical Bollywood movie. And the ending left one wondering, in search of an explanation as to what really happened.

These are movies which typically require a second viewing with the new inputs, so one can then interpret things differently from what one thought in the first watching. For me, this was a very different type of movie experience.
