Stephen Spielberg - Jaws

  1. Hey Dhuran, I think it's fascinating that you think the ending needed 'more'... in the original novel, there is no oxygen tank or exploding shark; rather, the shark just drowns; rightly, Spielberg knew this wouldn't chime cinematically, so went for the explosion. For me, one of the great things about JAWS is that it has a proper ending; there is no final coda in which the audience understands that the story isn't 'over'... this is certainly something that filmakers would be tempted to do if this movie was made now (but thank goodness is wasn't!).
