I want to ask everyone's opinion of the ending of Hang the DJ. Were the two main characters really people or just a simulation? I ask for a couple reasons.
Near the end when the female is provided time to say goodbye to one person, she chooses the male lead and they decide to leave together and buck the system. While leaving, a security guard attempts to taze them but instead, the security guard freezes and they are able to escape to the wall.
While climbing the wall, everything turns to binary code which proves this is clearly not reality.
After the wall climb, the characters find themselves in a room of strangers with numbers above their heads. Anyone notice the first person with a number was 998, was that a coincidence or was it because the repeated success rate of 99.8? Anyway, why are those people there? They then turn to particles and float away.
Finally, the two lead characters end up on the opposite ends of a bar, in a different time frame and with different personal styles. When they look at each other, was that attraction or did they recognize each other?
Because of the above points, I am a bit confused. Maybe that is the point?
What are your thoughts?
