  • Arrival on Random Simple Explanations Behind Most Ambiguous Movie Endings

    (#2) Arrival

    • Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker, Michael Stuhlbarg, Tzi Ma

    Although Arrival was lauded by critics, it left some viewers confused over what the end of the story actually meant. The conclusion reveals that the flashbacks Louise has been seeing throughout the movie are actually not glimpses of the past, but rather visions of the future.

    The character is seeing her unborn daughter, Hannah, will develop the terrible illness and eventually pass. Louise then chooses to embrace her future and go through the events that she has foreseen, even knowing the tragedy that will befall her—and Ian, Hannah's father.

    Right at the end of Inception, Cobb finally returns to his children after spending what felt like lifetimes in the dream world. He spins his totem—the top he uses to determine whether or not he is in the dream world—on a table, but the camera fades to black before it is revealed whether it falls or continues to spin. This has led many fans to believe Cobb is still asleep, and he is stuck in the dream world instead of in reality with his children.

    The ending has polarized fans. Some believe he is awake, while others think he was in too deep and is now stuck in a dream-state psychosis. The film's director, Christopher Nolan, didn't give a clear cut yes or no on the dream status of Cobb, but he did offer this at the 2015 Princeton commencement ceremony:

    The way the end of that film worked, Leonardo DiCaprio's character Cobb—he was off with his kids, he was in his own subjective reality. He didn't really care anymore, and that makes a statement: perhaps all levels of reality are valid. The camera moves over the spinning top just before it appears to be wobbling; it was cut to black.

    In August 2018, Michael Caine, who plays Cobb's father-in-law, offered his take on the infamously ambiguous ending during a screening of the film in London:

    When I got the script of Inception, I was a bit puzzled by it. I said [to Nolan]: "I don’t understand where the dream is." I said: "When is it the dream and when is it reality?" He said: "Well, when you’re in the scene, it’s reality." So get that: if I’m in it, it’s reality. If I’m not in it, it’s a dream.

  • Shutter Island on Random Simple Explanations Behind Most Ambiguous Movie Endings

    (#9) Shutter Island

    • Leonardo DiCaprio, Michelle Williams, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Emily Mortimer, Max von Sydow, Jackie Earle Haley, Patricia Clarkson, Ted Levine, Elias Koteas, John Carroll Lynch, Robin Bartlett, Matthew Cowles, Christopher Denham, Joe Sikora, Tom Kemp, Jill Larson, Raymond Anthony Thomas, Americo Presciutti, Dan Marshall, Ken Cheeseman, Curtiss Cook, Skip Shea, Aidan Mitchell, John Franchi, Bates Wilder, Ruby Jerins, Lars Gerhard, Guy Grundy, Steve Witting, Keith Fluker, Robert Masiello, Donna Glee Reim, Jeffrey Corazzini, Nellie Sciutto, Joseph P. Reidy, Joseph McKenna, Cody Harter, Dennis Lynch, Michael Byron, Alex Milne, Danny Carney, Mackenzie Hawe, Billy Silvia, Gary Galone, Drew Beasley, Rob W. Gray, Thomas B.

Chapman, Chris Henderson, Jon Robert Stafford

    By the time it is finally revealed at the end of Shutter Island that Teddy is actually Andrew, it turns out he is to be lobotomized after taking a deep dive back into insanity. He says "This place makes me wonder which would be worse: to live as a monster, or to end as a good man?"

    Most people assume this is simply the ramblings of a mad man who is about to suffer a horrific operation. However, the true meaning could well be that Andrew is faking his illness in order to escape the crushing guilt from the things he has committed. Having been cured of his madness, he is able to comprehend what he has done and chooses to have a lobotomy in order to dull this guilt forever.

  • A Clockwork Orange on Random Simple Explanations Behind Most Ambiguous Movie Endings

    (#11) A Clockwork Orange

    • Malcolm McDowell, Warren Clarke, Steven Berkoff, David Prowse, Adrienne Corri, Aubrey Morris, George Coulouris, Patrick Magee, Pat Roach, Michael Bates, Gaye Brown, John Clive, Margaret Tyzack, Philip Stone, Carol Drinkwater, Miriam Karlin, Anthony Sharp, John Savident, Godfrey Quigley, Peter Burton, Clive Francis, Gillian Hills, Sheila Raynor, Madge Ryan, James Marcus, Virginia Wetherell, Michael Gover, Carl Duering, John J.

    A Clockwork Orange sees Alex seemingly returning to his old ultraviolent ways after his conditioning and brainwashing is undone when he attempts to snuff it. While this relatively dark conclusion was what Stanley Kubrick felt was most appropriate for the film, the novel is far lighter in its approach to the ending.

    Kubrick’s movie is remarkably darker in tone, leaving it unknown to the audience whether Alex will go back to being in a bad crew. The book, though, made it clear in the final chapter that the character began to realize the error of his ways and eventually started to turn his life around. However, when the book was published in the US, this final chapter was not included until 1986, 15 years after the film had been made.

  • Interstellar on Random Simple Explanations Behind Most Ambiguous Movie Endings

    (#10) Interstellar

    • Anne Hathaway, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, John Lithgow, Topher Grace, Casey Affleck, Ellen Burstyn, David Oyelowo, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Bill Irwin, Elyes Gabel, Timothée Chalamet, David Gyasi

    Almost everyone who has watched Interstellar was perplexed by the messy conclusion. When Cooper travels through the black hole, he ends up in a fourth dimension that allows him to access various points along the timeline of Murph’s bedroom.

    He eventually realizes he can save the human race from extinction by tapping out the quantum data on a watch. Once this is completed, the black hole closes and sends him back to Brand. He blacks out and wakes up in the future, having been rescued by an advanced human colony.

  • No Country for Old Men on Random Simple Explanations Behind Most Ambiguous Movie Endings

    (#7) No Country for Old Men

    • Javier Bardem, Tommy Lee Jones, Woody Harrelson, Josh Brolin, Kelly Macdonald, Garret Dillahunt, Stephen Root, Beth Grant, Tess Harper, Barry Corbin, Jason Douglas, Luce Rains, Brandon Smith, Caleb Landry Jones, Kathy Lamkin, Thomas Kopache, Myk Watford, Matthew Posey, Rodger Boyce, Boots Southerland, Albert Fry Jr., Josh Blaylock, Johnnie Hector, Chris Warner, http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0339472/, Rutherford Cravens, Ana Reeder, Margaret Bowman, Josh Meyer, Marc Miles, Scott Flick, Doris Hargrave, Trent Moore, Roland Uribe, Dorsey Ray, Gene Jones, Kit Gwin, Zach Hopkins, Richard Jackson, Angelo Martinez, Eduardo Antonio Garcia, Elizabeth Slagsvol, George Adelo, Eric Reeves, Milton Hernandez, John Mancha, Chip Love, David A. Gomez, Angel H. Alvarado Jr., Philip Bentham

    Unlike many other movies set in this genre, No Country For Old Men doesn't end with a dramatic action sequence. Instead, it ends a character talking about his dreams. These aren’t some random thoughts that have nothing to do with the rest of the events, either. They are symbolic explanations of why Bell survived and why he is no longer a force in the world.

    The first dream tells how Bell is not focused on money or greed, the things that led to the conflict between Chigurh and Moss.

    Meanwhile, the second dream is a metaphor for how the sheriff is out of his depth and not capable of creating the idyllic world in which he wants to live.
