“In Praise of Movies that Just End (because They Used to Know When to End)”

At Uproxx, Mike Ryan writes about contemporary movies and their multiple or stretched out endings. “I reached out to a few prominent screenwriters/filmmakers to ask them if I was off base. These are people you have most likely heard of who have made movies you have most likely seen. What I found was I was getting two sets of answers. I was getting ‘on the record’ answers that kind of insinuated I was making too big a deal about this. Then I was getting ‘off the record’ or ‘on background’ answers that were much more interesting and honest and made it sound like, yes, I was correct. So what I did was I told everyone I wouldn’t be using their names and would just publish everyone’s quotes on background because I’d rather have the interesting, more honest answers.”
