The end was a bit ambiguous. I definitely think that the ending, for me, was enriched by reading the book first. There was a lot going on emotionally with Jimmy and his wife that was undoubtedly very hard to capture on film.

Personally, I loved the ending (but then, I like endings that don’t really tie up all the loose ends). Kevin Bacon making a gun of his fingers and pointing directly at Sean Penn—it gave me chills.
