The Movie ends with the death of Samantha Caine. Not a literal death of the character but a release. With only a few minutes on the screen for explanation, the pictures on the screen must have instant meaning.(McGrail; Milburn, 616) If we are to assume that Samantha is no longer present then we must also acknowledge she was a person and not a personality. Samantha’s transformation into Charlene was accompanied by black outs when Charlene’s personality superseded her own. However, at no point in The Long Kiss Goodnight does the story imply Charlene does has forgotten Samantha’s memories. Regardless, there is strong evidence that Samantha is not the same person she was at the beginning of the film. This goes beyond the change in physical appearance. In Fact, no where is this change expressed more accurately then Mitch points out why the change seems unnatural. Samantha went from “oh fooie the muffins are burning” to walking into a bar and chasing out the sailors.
Imagine the audiences delightful surprise when they discover Samantha, the mild mannered soccer mom, was actually a highly trained assassin. At the right moment the ever underestimated “soccer mom” becomes a superhero; saving Mitch, Katie, herself, and 4,000 others from total annihilation. The Long Kiss Goodnight satisfies all the qualities required of a Tech-Noir masterpiece. Like a Shakespearian play, The Long Kiss Goodnight carried the audience through a full range of emotions. We feel sad for the loss of a perfect world. Anger for the pain and suffering one experiences. And, finally, accepting what is and living in the moment. Resources
