One thought on “Now Featuring: The Woman Who Wanted to Live Alone and Die Alone

    Many people could come up with movies that fit the bill. The beloved The Shawshank Redemption avoids the traditional romantic resolution (unless you could claim that’s a ‘bromance’ goin’ on there).

    What I cite as my fave film is Kurosawa’s Ikiru. In it, the dying protagonist doesn’t form a romantic connection – or a family reconciliation – but sets out to achieve one thing to leave the world a better place. The image of him basking in his accomplishment – all by himself – is one of the great moments in cinema.
