I'm not talking about the superficial "it's a coming of old age story"; all the normies got that; it's the least interesting part. I'm talking about the interesting complexity of showing "the quintessential fool VS the quintessential artist/thinker"; it start showing something relatively complex with them going on a final masks-off thing; but it feels like the movie ends before its final act.
What kind of incomplete messaging is this?

Agreed, when it ended I was expecting more
you're stupid. I'm saying my brain is so big, that I wanted more from it to feed it.
its crap and nothing happens
Life. What a trip.
WHAT A LIFE!
They should have had a fight like in Dragon Ball Z or Spiderman: No Way Home.
Dont you know? European movies end at the end of the second act. It makes the film deep and ambiguous in a way that shitty American movies with their third acts can never achieve.
Banshees sucked but you’re retarded for saying something like this
You motherfucking dimwits are going to end me! Colm chops off all his fingers, changes his mind about Pad and Pad burns his fecking house down!?! How is there no third act???
>OMG THEY SHOULD HAVE FOUGHT THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN SO EPIC END THE MOBIE WITH A BATTLE SCENE OMG EPICCCCCCCNESS WE MISSED OUT ALTERNATE ENDING WHEN?
More like a regular bloke vs pretentious pseudo
Finish it few 7-8 hours ago. My take.
The simpler a person is, the more convinced he is of his rightness and his own intelligence, because he lacks the competence to evaluate himself objectively. We can see this effect in the movie and here in the posts. The film is a metaphor for society with its people - smart, less smart, simple and extremely simple, victims and abusers. The really smart ones like Siobhan are a minority and they have to put up with the stupidity of everyone else, first they close in on themselves because they feel misunderstood and unheard, then when they get fed up they pack their bags and leave somewhere where they will live better . The less intelligent like Colm try to do something to make their existence meaningful, but often the fools are so many and so annoying that they waste their time on unimportant things, like Podrick, who want to speak their mind and be heard, despite having neither the knowledge nor the life experience nor the professional competence, just like many of the anons on 4chin. Meanwhile, somewhere far away or not so far away, a war is raging...
also sorry for englando EU fagg
>you see it's all about iq
Oh lawdsy here we go again
you missed some stuff. the self-destructiveness of "the artist/thinker" is an important theme and "the stupid" towards the end calls his bluff and goes "let's see if you actually have a nice day" and he doesn't (he leaves the burning house).
the sister is a peripheral character that expresses one of the main observers of the main duo (e.g. there's the 'superstitious old woman' or 'the nosey shop owner" etc.) and besides: 'the artists' is also a thinker in this story.
There are other things in play i know i just didnt want to write an essay.
Colm deciding to not die and talk to Padriac constitutes the conflict resolving.
The self-mutilating loneliness pseuds think is inherent to the engagement of any artistic pursuit is just unresolved despair. Padriac's decision to burn his house down is what made Colm realize that he was just being a fussy, depressed bitch, and that he still viewed life as inherently worthwhile.
>Colm deciding to not die and talk to Padriac constitutes the conflict resolving.
That's what I got from the movie (OP here), but at the same time it seems not enough.
It felt like "1st stage: confusion" "2nd stage: end of this movie" "3rd ???????".
>Being stubborn is le bad
Colm spends the whole film preparing for death. Then when he faces death he realizes he loves living and would rather spend the rest of his days among the living (his dumb friends) than with the dead (the immortal artists of history).
I like this take
I agree with this (OP here), but I still think it's not enough. see here
the film still follows a three act structure. if anything, it's missing a 1st act. The donkey dying was the start of the third act. And yeah, it ends open ended, although the conflict is resolved.
It's just bot s good movie. Pseuds refuse to accept this.
The film's ending posits that a shitty life with boring people is still preferable to no life at all. Pretty simple.
I thought the main message of the movie was simply about how pride can destroy a person and people around him. Colm cares more about his legacy than his friend and completely ruins Padraic by turning away from him. Padraic is simple, but innocent and friendly at the start. At the end he is spiteful and bitter. All Colm's sacrifices for his art are for nothing.
>buhhhhh popular movie actually not good
>every film needs to have a resolution
Many films have endings like this, zoomer. This board fucking sucks so bad god
Last time i watched an intriguing KINO was pic relate. Banshee filled the void.
Colm ruined Pad for sake of his own ego what fucking 3rd act did you want?!
also this movie is about the duality of artists and the struggle to create vs live life. Colm and Pad are two sides of the same person in an internal fight
