Peter Bradshaw on end credits

'Movie credits make me want to run away'

It may be wrong, but I just can't help myself. The moment a film fades to black and the end credits roll, I jump from my seat and I'm out of there. And so I have unwittingly cast my vote in a long-running debate: should film critics watch all the final credits, scrolling, scrolling, scrolling, right to the bitter end? Some believe that avoiding this is a dereliction of professional responsibility. Others think it's a fetish, and that the full-credit list is in any case a vainglory of cinema that other artforms do without.

Either way, I almost physically can't do it. Sitting there until that awful moment when the lights are brought weakly back up induces in me a strange tristesse and exhaustion: the complete opposite of that eternal thrill when the lights go down. I feel like Woody Allen in Play It Again, »
