Well that line leads us to believe that he was in fact pretending at the end so he wouldn't have to live with the guilt. So if that line was movie-exclusive then you can't really say the story is the book, because they made a few distinctions.

That's what I thought happened in the end.
Initially I beleive he was in denial and had a supressed memory but was rehabed.

The book is how the story was meant to be told. The ending to the movie cheapened part of that. He was crazy.

Actually this is the kind of movie you have to see a few times. Just to see the subtle things the actors do, and try and find giveaways. Like The 6th sense, when you try to figure out if there was any parts it was obvious Bruce Willis is really dead.

I never watched the trailer. And the commercials never implied that he was insane. It's whatever though I'll still probably watch it eventually.

According to the Bluray special features, in interviews with Scorsese, Lehane, and the actors, he was indeed insane. So we can put this stupid debate to rest.

This thread should be deleted or, at the very least, modified. What the hell, Dooms? That's a real d!ckhead move.
