    Subject: The ending: SPOILERS
    Date: Oct 28, 2003
    Sender: AllahPrevious | Next

    The ending shows the guy walking into an isolated bushy area, which when zoomed out happened to be hairy vagina the body of the lead woman.

    My take: The characters are already dead and are living in their own or a shared personal hell. The exact symbolism of why he went to her vagina, and why it was the only "place" in the middle of nowhere is not comprehensive to me yet.

    I do understand it to be a metaphor either about men, or about this man in relation to this woman. Regardless they were both dead and with this in mind you may have to see it over again to decipher what the writer was trying to say.
