THE END OF THE TOUR (2015) by James Ponsoldt
“Imagine the greatest conversation you’ve ever had”
Really all outsiders finish necessarily bad with their lives?, a genie die prematurely and for this he look more brilliant?.
Theses are the main ideas of this movie. In spite of It is based on Although of course you end up becoming yourself, report/interview between the Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky with the writer David Foster Wallace, autor of best seller Infinite Jest, The film twists the information for put in the perverse idea “If you don’t adapt to the society, or you are a regular guy or you will finish bad”. Regular, this word is repited to much throughout the movie, but, What is being regular?, Is being regular good?, Is putting in the society something necessary?.
On the other hand, in spite of I agree with the idea of never glorify to suicide victim, the movies strips to Wallace of him genius. Only it is showed in the dialogs. The current society is able to distinguish between a brilliant guy’s life and suicide defense. Don’t have place for a magnet effect.
However it is worthy watching for: the infinity and snowed landscapes, the sound of the footsteeps in the snow, for the soundtrack, the trips by car and the conversations in there, for the intelligent and funny dialogs, for the surprising black-lit image, It is like a metaphor about the genie’s light. Only for this it is worthy that you watch it.
