big build up for a grand ending
11 June 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Once you've made it to the grand finale of this movie, it's clear that this was the only happy ending it could have had. Johnny was heading for Willy Loman territory with a one way ticket, but he had to be shown that, far from being the failure he couldn't face being, he had created something that was timeless. His smoldering discontent reminds very much of "Death of a Salesman", although his own family is a far more functioning unit that Willy's. Baz's voluntary demise was tragic yet sort of inevitable - yet Johnny had a lot more to live for. The film is deceptively complex. An ending to equal "The Browning Version". It's a long way there, though.... It's also interesting to see Guy Pearce before he made LA Confidential.
