This article contains major spoilers for Netflix’s Entergalactic, including the ending.
Netflix’s feature-length special visual accompaniment to Kid Cudi’s eighth studio album of the same title isn’t quite the kind of film that is done justice by any of these articles. It has an ending, of course, and a few plot twists that might come as surprises, but there’s little here that really needs explaining. The work doesn’t excel on the strength of its plot beats, or even its fundamental relationship, but rather how those things are informed by the outstanding visuals and soundtrack.
Yet, for posterity, here’s what really happened. And just in case you’re interested in a spoiler-free version of our thoughts on the special set, here’s our entergalactic exam.
The intergalactic end explained
entergalactic is a love story between two artists, Jabari and Meadow, who become neighbors and then lovers at a speed neither of them is necessarily prepared for. The two are different – Bari is a street artist; Meadow is a photographer – but very similar in their dedication to self-expression, New York and fast to each other.
We know how Jabari feels about Meadow even before he does, because by the time they meet, we’ve already seen him back down from rekindling a relationship with an old flame named Carmen, saying he doesn’t have time. to have a relationship with somebody at present. Famous Last Words! Bari and Meadow quickly bond, and in a series of beautiful montages, we see them bonding and developing what is an unlabeled but also unequivocal relationship.
This is where things get a little complicated. With the two at major turning points in their careers – Bari’s locally celebrated art creation Mr Rager is being turned into a comic book series by a major publisher, while Meadow prepares for a museum exhibition of his work – are they able to commit to one another? The catalyst event for some of these questions is that Meadow finds a text on Bari’s phone from Carmen – a picture of her wearing her hoodie and nothing else. What is it about?
As we see in a little flashback, Jabari just called to help him get a rat out of his kitchen. He mistakenly left his hoodie on, and Carmen, not exactly adhering to the “let’s be friends” routine, pulled his shot. This stuff happens, but it certainly seems a bit suspicious for Meadow. Still, she’s pretty rational about it. She takes some time away from Jabari, but there’s no big dramatic fight. They simply begin to drift away from each other, though neither is ready to let the other go (this is communicated by montages of the two talking to their respective friends about their feelings; a nice mirror of their meet-cute.)
These conversations, however, cause Jabari and Meadow to realize that they want to be with each other. Bari shows up at Meadow’s exhibit then quickly disappears, using her graffiti to lead her back to the vegan burger joint where they had their first unofficial “date”. They run into each other’s arms and kiss for a beautiful happiness forever.
The final frame of the film is the character Mr. Rager of Bari pointing admiringly at one of Meadow’s photos, which is displayed on a billboard; their intertwined art.
