  • oh man! We just seen it about 4 days ago and hubby and I had the same discussion, I think your DH is right he did come in a ferry but at the end the head person whispered something to the guards and it looked like they were taking him to the lighthouse to cut into his brain like Leo thought all along which leads me to believe that Leo was right and he was not crazy! Hubby thinks Leo was crazy.

  • I want to know. The movie kind of leaves it up to the viewer to decide if he was crazy or not.

  • I read the book, and it was amazing! I didn't even realize there was a movie out, I need to see it. Do you really want to know if he was crazy? :)

  • I thing it was to hard for him to deal with the truth and I do think that he made himself believe he was there as a detective investigating a missing person. The doctor tried to help him one last time so that they wouldn't kill him...but at the end he decided that it was better to die as good man or something than to live as a monster. Meaning at the end of the movie he realized what he had done and why he was there but would rather die as a detective good guy then live as a monster for killing his wife who killed their children. Whoooooo! hope you got that lol.

  • The good man/monster comment could have been interpided either way. He may have referred to himself as dying as a good man and the doctor living life as a monster. Who knows?

  • I saw it and loved it! I took the ending to mean that he knew what he did but didn't want to live with it. Or couldn't live with it. So by making them think he was still crazy, he wouldn't have to live as a monster anymore. Or something like that! I love Leo.
