The whole purpose of that ending is for the viewer themselves to decide on its meaning, what use would it be being told what it means? The viewer makes up its own meanings for things in the film and gives it more importance because each different interpretation states the case more and more that it is an open work. The best films are the films that give off more meanings and are not limited to just one nice, rolled up meaning that is obvious to the audience.

How come you don't talk about A Clockwork Orange? Do you consider it to be a film of lesser quality? Huh, Georgie boy? None of the old "in-out, in-out" for you I suppose... ?

The reason I didn't talk about A Clockwork Orange there because it is generally regarded as a great film by most people, my point was to talk about films really not considered to be up there in being great pieces of film art.
