David Chase On The Soprano's Ending

Alan Sepinwall has posted an interview with David Chase, who is vacationing in France in part to escape the rush of judgments and questions about the choices he made for his final episode. I wouldn't be surprised if this is Chase's final word on the Sopranos. It may also be mine.

It contains some very interesting stuff. Key quote:

"I have no interest in explaining, defending, reinterpreting, or adding to what is there," he says of the final scene.

"No one was trying to be audacious, honest to God," he adds. "We did what we thought we had to do. No one was trying to blow people's minds, or thinking, 'Wow, this'll (tick) them off.' People get the impression that you're trying to (mess) with them and it's not true. You're trying to entertain them."
