comment In “Mystic River” how come no one mentioned the second murder?
I guess "this morning" would have helped, but the ending would still frustrate me as a viewer because it hinges on not just one but two very unlikely events: (1) a second murder having happened on same night as the first, and also (2) second murder undiscovered until just after Dave's death. To me, this felt like the screenplay cheated its way to resolution -- and I can't believe such a movie won Best Picture.

comment Explanation for Lenny's “I've done it” tattoo
I gave Lenny more credit than that... I think he truly wanted closure, but Teddy was tricking him. Of course we don't know what happened after the events in the movie, but personally I think Teddy would have been Lenny's last kill.

comment Explanation for Lenny's “I've done it” tattoo
"Lenny would rather live on as a deliberately ignorant hero, or at least a righteous vigilante, than choose to live on with complete knowledge, including the knowledge that he is a monster. He makes this choice when he burns the success photos and copies Teddy's license plate." To me, that was Lenny setting up revenge on Teddy, as Teddy had just admitted how he'd been using Lenny. See my answer above for more.

comment Why Ava behaved like that with Caleb?
From a screenwriting perspective, I think Ava left Caleb to show us viewers that it is not just the Nathan-type selfish/heedless scientists who will have to suffer from AI. Instead, AI could turn on all of us -- even those of us who are good guys, like Caleb.
