The theme of luck over fate is addressed at the start of the movie, being compared to a tennis match when the ball just knocks the top of the net... the ball can either fall back on your side, or bounce over to the other side. I particularly liked this theme, because it's something that plays a huge part throughout the film... most notably the ending, where things come full circle. Speaking of which, MATCH POINT takes such a bizarre turn in its final half hour that I have to admit to being a little taken aback, but in a good way. Others though, may feel much different, even to the point that the ending might ruin the movie for them. Not so for me, as I thought the ending allowed audiences to see something not commonly done in this type of film. It also works because of how developed all the characters have become. Throughout all the back and forths between the leads, it actually feels like you can understand them as real people. This is most evident with Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, who despite seeming to be very loose with his morals, does actually seems like a genuinely decent person. This just makes the ending all the more shocking, which I loved. Lets just hope Woody can keep to this standard with later productions.
