This has the best ending in all of movies. After hours of grueling arguement and soul searching, everyone just leaves. Then on the steps: Hey, what’s your name? Davis. Mine’s McArdle. (Beat.) Well. . .so long. Some argue how brave this film is to wear its liberal heart on its sleeve. I say, this completely true to life near Warhol-esque micro-ending is what’s bravest.
