Let's discuss that final line...( SPOLIERS )
no need to be here if you haven't watched it, and plan to.
because this final line pretty much will destroy the whole point behind it.
therefore, you will not understand it anyway outside the context of what the film presents.
sorry i am being lazy and not capitalizing the start of sentances.
i'm just wasting time so people will not read the spoiler so fast.
so you watched it, and the film pretty much comes down to her final line:
"It's not that I have something to hide. I have nothing I want you to see."
I get why she feels that way in the movie and is the drive for all of that. I know what the words mean and the way that character feels.
How do YOU guys and gals feel about that statement? What does it mean, or do, for you?
We live in the age where giving up "privacy" can get us more out of life in many ways. Society is evolving to match the technology that enables us to do and live more. In way, 100 times more than ever before.
So, someone has my blood type? Knows my address? Knows I like foootball? I say, "Who cares!!" And I am a pretty old guy and should be shaking my flip phone at these "Damn kids, with their rock and roll 8-track smart phones" (I have a smart phone FYI) ;)
So, here statement, and pretty much the entire premise here is not "I have something to hide", it's SIMPLY "I don't have anything I want to show you". Or maybe, I like the human right to NOT show you stuff. Fair enough.
However, to me (and I don't normally see things globally like the rest), I really didn't care about her ideal there, and it didn't affect me in any way. I simply didn't care about her perspective in relation to the whole cyber security fear mongering that is shoved at us all time.
After all, everyone that is so paranoid about "Privacy" now days is old enough to remember, and be proud of the fact that their PHONE NUMBER and HOME ADDRESS, attached to THEIR NAME, used to be published on paper, for nationwide access in the public phone books every year.
Also, I read the writer director interview where he is all paranoid about social media (paraphrasing) and based the movie on that ending statement: I have nothing i want you to see.
I enjoyed the movie, it was well made and thought provoking.
Just curious what others FEEL about the ending "point", as it were.
