even if god is dead, you're going to kiss his ass

How - and why - did Tony Soprano die in Holsten’s diner in the final scene of The Sopranos? This incredible series of articles (link below) attempts to clear up one of the 'most misunderstood endings in film or television history'

A thorough examination of the directing and editing in the final scene, a conclusion on what Tony's death 'means', the symbology of Holstenʼs, 'The Godfather', 'Goodfellas' and Kubrick references, 9/11 and the Iraq war and, of course, who killed Tony?

A must read for Sopranos obsessives (wether you agree or disagree).
