There’s an unspoken contract between filmmakers and viewers. When watching a film, you agree to give the filmmaker a few hours of your time and attention. The filmmaker, in turn, agrees to wrap up the story cleanly at the end, tying up or kindly snipping off all the loose threads left as the story unraveled—or not. Sometimes filmmakers conveniently forget this unspoken contract, leaving you with more questions than answers. Of course, the only solution to this problem is to watch the movie over and over again until it makes sense. Maybe these filmmakers are on to something.
