Art House Films... Why Do They Always End Weird?

So, I'm watching The Station Agent last night.  An art house type film that really had potential.  It had a totally unique plot and new faces that could spell a good movie.  But, I found I was disappointed.  Not at the whole movie just the ending.  It just doesn't really "end".  And I found myself wondering why all art house type films tend to have some bizarre ending?  Perhaps I don't understand good art.  Let's face it, I'm not the artsy fartsy type anyway.  But, I really think movies should typically have you walking out going "Cool movie.  I didn't see that coming."  Or maybe "Cool movie, I'm so glad they worked that out."  But, in this movie, I just ended by saying, "Huh?"  So, I give this movie a 3 of 5 stars.  Excluding the ending a 4 of 5.  But, the ending just blew it for me.
I just realized a problem.  I don't have any other rentals to watch at home!  This is terrible!  Let's hope HBO comes through...
