It would have been a decent movie. But the ending was too frustrating to watch, starting with the scene where Jimmy's wife praises him. The movie should have ended with drunk Jimmy walking down the street, leaving it unknown if he goes to jail or not, also leaving Sean clean. The ending, showing Jimmy and his wife being careless about Dave, and moreover Sean showing that Dave's murder was "no biggy bro" seems like the movie wants to send a wrong message that I don't wanna say out loud since it's disgusting. They could have left it untold about everyone's lives. Instead they chose to show ignorance towards the death of the most tragic character in movie.
Except for the ending (where Jimmy doesn't go to jail even though he has committed two murders) this is a great movie! What I don't get is why Eastwood only hints that Sean tries to get Jimmy to jail and why he doesn't end the film with Jimmy's imprisonment (additionally I found Jimmy's wife's statement at the end of the film ridiculous...)
the best film i've ever seen!
