I never said it wasn't a great movie; It is, without a doubt. But for me personally,

the whole tunnel of light, the old man on the bed, and the other self-consciously absurd images at the end of the movie
are just Stanley Kubrick masturbating on 70mm celluloid. Obviously, other people have differing opinions.
You know what they say about opinions...
