"The sendoff after the song is contemplative rather than bold... another surprising move."
If the film ends with the same imagry the book does, then this actually makes sense. The final image I'm expecting is one of sailing off to the horizon (Into the West). If this is the case, then I rather like the thought of the score simply fading off along with the main characters. All the triumphant bombast would belong before the end.
