Watching the Watchers

The Village is an interesting film. I paid $3 to see it at the cheapie theater and felt that was about right. There were many metaphors about life that I wasn't expecting and some, quite frankly, I could've done without.
After it was over, we sat there. Our friends were watching the credits. I'd always made fun of credit-watchers before, not really understanding why they would sit in the theater rather than stretching after a long film.
I think maybe they sit, not to watch the names scroll by, but to maybe digest what they've just seen. A final reflection, if you will. I'm still not a convert.
