Should have shown Scarlette's face during finale scene


It's exclusion probably cost them the best picture.

If you read the trivia on IMDB, you would know that this was a conscious choice from the beginning, based on the heavy references to Rosie's shoes, particularly how they were very often at his eye level. Like when she's pacing above him at the place he was getting physical therapy. The director is making the shoes a prominent feature of Rosie, so they would be easily recognizable when Jojo discovers them on a woman hanging from a noose. That and the director thought it would be too dark and traumatizing, both for Jojo and for the audience, to show Rosie's face. I liked the way they did it. You knew without having it spoon fed to you.

Maybe he thought he could copy Speilberg's red coat moment in Schindler's List.

It's a PG 13 movie, which could be the reason why. However the movie is quite heavy. They should've made it an R rated movie.
