havent seen the film yet, but i cant wait,hoping to get to it maybe tomorrow. i love all the coen crime films like fargo, blood simple and millers crossing. just to make it clear now though, im not someone who really 'gets' films with symbolic or veiled-meaning endings.

i wouldn't say the ending was bad but it's just not the standard happy ending

I haven't seen it either, but I' personally don't enjoy "the standard happy ending" movie endings. I like when things don't go as expected. Perhaps because I end up correctly guessing the twist, and "suprise" ending of every movie I watch. Sorry I couldn't help.

I saw it and that was really the only gripe I had with it, too. I don't think we're supposed to know what happens, except that Tommy Lee (I forgot his character;s name) finally retired like he was planning on during the entire movie. We're supposed to assume that a lot of people got killed in that entire fiasco, because it probably didn't end when the creepy psycho guy got in the car accident. Taking into condieration Tommy Lee's somber mood at the end, a whooole lot of more killing was done and it probably wasn't a happy ending for both parties, or it even didn't end at all. But, he's old,,, and there's no place for old men in the police force. Especially when you're dealing with psycho killers after a lot of drug money.
I don't know, maybe reading the book will help clarify a few things? I haven't read it myself, though.
