    Maddox writes: "If spoiling a movie mattered, then people wouldn't own movies they've seen before. I will never list "spoiler alert" to placate you dipshits, so spare me your tearful pleas." That's true in a sense. I knew how Prometheus would end. They all end the same way. The mother ship blows up.

    Neat interview with one of the writers, Damon Lindelof. My own thought tree and impressions of the movie ran right along the lines staked out in this interview. So, yay. He said some people would be creatively intrigued by unanswered questions and some would be pissed off. Hah.

    Such as "Weyland tries to reverse his aging by asking the aliens for answers, even though cryogenic technology has safely maintained him"?

    I don't think the cryogenic lifestyle would be a very active one. Whatever floats your boat. But at least it wouldn't be boring either. What a silly criticism. Of course cryogenics isn't the answer to old age, it merely delays the inevitable.

    You mean the story of MLK Jr's last night on earth? That Mountaintop?

    Good interview, I'm glad I wasn't just grasping at David's significance and those themes were actually deliberate. If anything, this seems like a lot of the shoddiness wasn't Damon's fault, but more Ole Man Ridley going for a 2001 style piece and if you disagree then GET OFF MY LAWN.

In fact, as you express (regarding yourself) below, I kinda like it. I think it's actually a place where Ni doms probably feel more comfortable, cuz I think this is how we look at the world already: mysterious, so many possibilities, never exactly sure what the truth is. Ti doms, I feel, need their explanation (enneagram 5s, in particular, but there is no stronger correlation between the MBTI and the enneagram than Ti doms and e5s) of things, they need to destroy the mystery, they need to have clarity, and I think being in the situation this movie leaves you in, of not knowing, of having so many unanswered questions, is probably not enjoyable to them at all (and, for the millionth time, people: I'm speaking of tendencies, tendencies).
    Strange, unanswered questions don't piss me off. For example, the ending to Lost, which Lindelof also had a hand in.
