"everybody's dead, mr. sheeran."

an entire life wasted. when you sit back and realize you've learned nothing and every experience has led to this. a void where a father should have been. senseless murder where there should have been triumph and trust. confronts the end in a manner that i think only people who are actually nearing death can articulate in all its perfect misery. the movie's over. there's no more part to play, no more captain to serve. maybe even a commentary on the decay of the genre itself, from godfather to goodfellas to now. scorsese's i'm thinking of ending things.
