The twist felt cheap


Expected better from Scorsese, didn't think he'd direct something with a cheap Shyamalan-esque twist.

Agreed, the coming 'twist' was pretty obvious. Telegraphed as hell, I would have been surprised if there wasn't the twist at all. But they laid it on pretty thick. It is a Shame too the performances of the film were good and the plot itself is not bad, but the twist resembled the cliche "it was all a dream" way too much. Also if you figure out the twist by the middle of the film it severally negatively impacts the enjoyment of the film.

It was based on a book so maybe it's not all his fault.

I liked the twist. Especially cause I got it wrong first time I watched the end. Even the twist is a twist.
