Hello...I come by here from time to time and saw a comment about Mystic River. I just went to catch this in re-release this weekend. How did I feel about it? Great acting, particularly by Penn and Robbins. But the ending was not particularly satisfying. I'm not against a bit of moral ambiguity in a film - in fact I often like it - but the ending to me felt hasty. They had the parade, Bacon's character knew, and it ... just... ended. It kind of felt like they ran out of money, or like Eastwood got tired of editing and dumped what was left in the can for the last reel. Not bad but not what it could have been, either.
