Everyone sees something different in ‘Endgame‘: a biblical apocalypse, a portrait of painful co-dependency, a confession of guilt and dignity in the face of death, a night of baffling hopelessness, a meaningless babble.

We have a great rapport together.

‘Bowling For Columbine’ and ‘Gus Van Sant’s Elephant‘ really intrigued me.

But having said that, it is always a lot of interpretation.
