    can anyone explain the ending to me? Love Tommy Lee Jones but this has to be the dumbest movie he's ever made.

    Understand, local steals drug $$, bad guys try to track him down but then all loose ends, no ending that makes sense to me.

    There's supposed to be an existential message there that nobody can do anything about the evil in the world and everything sucks. That good is wasted on a terrible world.

    Cheery, ain't it?

    I think that they made a movie that made no sense just so they could laugh when people and critics say that they got it. I have read different things online about what some think that the movie meant and they all read between lines that just aren't there.

    I'm 29 as well and didn't really get it. The beginning was good and then they just completely went all intellectual at the end and I was like "what the hell just happened!"
