Some of the greatest films ever made are of the less straightforward variety, the sorts of movies whose endings are open for interpretation - thus ensuring decades of debate thereafter to keep the film’s legacy alive. But it’s one thing when audiences disagree about plot points, and another thing entirely when it’s the cast and crew who don’t see eye-to-eye on the meaning of a film.
One would think that working together in the creation of cinema tends to build a consensus, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes, actors and directors never manage to reach an agreement on what exact message the film they’re collaborating on is trying to send. Sometimes, those disagreements erupt into outright feuds; more often, they become lively debates for years to come.
