The Cojocaru generalization of the 2 × 2 extended Jones matrix method, placed in a wider context of previous approaches to anisotropic optical thin films, is analyzed from a complementary perspective. This, contrary to initial belief, allows for a simple proof that one may include multiple reflections by taking into account total fields into the anisotropic film, and this therefore provides support for a more widespread use of the method.
