No, I don't have to admit that. I thought the ending was perfect. What you meant was "I didn't care for the ending. In my opinion, it was somewhat vague and I would have liked to see some of the loose ends tied up." Instead you tried to tell us what we should think.

Not true at all. The IDEA of a movie (or a book or a television show) is to tell an entertaining story. I can be argued that any movie which you left wondering to yourself, "What happened next?" is more compelling and interesting than a neatly packaged ending. (See: The Sopranos finale)

Actually, they can. They're the fucking directors.

And god forbid you should have to do a little wondering after the credits.
