What do you guys think about a story with an ambiguous ending? Not so neatly tied up and could mean more than one thing. The story is a bit of a mystery with elements of a slow-moving thriller if that makes any sense. It could be a murder mystery of sorts, but there are no detectives and if this guy is really dead comes into question. I kind of want the ending to raise a new set of questions. I don't know if this makes a difference, but this is a screenplay I've been working on. Though a bit challenging, I completely love writing it. I think it is somewhat of a more artsy screenplay than mainstream, but who knows. I don't even know what you do with a screenplay. I asked my friend who has made a few documentaries that were shown at festivals to make my script into a movie. He laughed. That's all I got. Back to the ending. I guess I want to leave it ambiguous if my character was really killed or is even really dead. Do you guys think that could work? I don't really plan out anything I write, but I'm at the point where I'm starting to think about the ending. I don't have to go all ambiguous. I'm not married to the idea. This particular way to end the story just sort of popped in my head. I'm thinking it could work, but I've also been told this sort of thing (ambiguity) is hard to pull off. Are you ever ambiguous with your writing? Have you tried to be? Did it work?
