      Alan H I'm not qualified to talk about this film in any kind of informed way. I don't know the source novel or author, and the genre is not one I usually hang around in. But Jesse Buckley, Jeez. And Plemons. And Collette? How can this not be an amazing film? And it is. Painful, joyful, insightful, and mysterious. Lovely, panic attack-inducing, and unforgettable. Profoundly truthful, and difficult to escape after it ends. But worth the experience, far, far and again, worth it. Plus, David Thewlis steals scenes with just a glance, or a wave of his hand. Toni Collette has been burning up screens and scenes for a long time, and I've always gravitated toward her work. And then I saw Hereditary. After that, I've given her (ticket) money any time I could find an excuse. Just a marvelous movie. Highly recommend. And I love cold and snowy weather so it was made for me. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/16/24 Full Review Ben N This is an artistic film that makes sense, only in retrospect. There isn't a natural plot - even though your mind strains to sift one out of the odd and seemingly random things that keep happening. If you appreciate a slow burn, and thinking back on what you have seen; linking it together with human experience, this will be a worthwhile watch for you. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/08/24 Full Review Lisa W Excellent actors exercising their talents - or excellent actors masturbating? Amazing auteur - or artsy word salad & emotions that I'm not refined enough to understand? Where's Roger Ebert when you need him?! * sigh * PS - They all talked really fast and the wardrobe changes were confusing. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/08/24 Full Review Gabriele M Pretentious yet predictable, way too long and removes the only good part of the novel which is the ending. 2 hours wasted. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/05/24 Full Review Nushie S A disorienting introspective journey through fantasy and regret that serves as a cruel reminder of the uncontrollable and sometimes self-loathing nature of our minds. Even in our daydreams, we are not guaranteed the fulfillment of our desires. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review Casey Y I'd rather paint my entire house with a Q-tip than subject anyone from watching this movie. Horrible, should of ended it after 10 minutes.

      Charles Bramesco Inside Hook The mindbending auteur's latest film feels like a culmination of all that came before it. Sep 21, 2021 Full Review Adam Nayman The Ringer I'm Thinking of Ending Things doesn't just dramatize this condition but embodies it through Kaufman's daringly divergent interpretation of Iain Reid's source novel-the most idiosyncratic literary adaptation since Adaptation... Jan 27, 2021 Full Review Nick Schager Esquire Magazine It's a masterwork of unhinged tone, as well as a showcase for Buckley, whose grand performance covers an expansive stretch of emotional terrain. Jan 27, 2021 Full Review Sarah Cortinaz InSession Film If I were to say that I’m Thinking of Ending Things messes with your mind, that wouldn’t even begin to tell you what you’re in store for. It’s unconventional, but so is director Charlie Kaufman. Apr 23, 2024 Full Review Ryan McQuade InSession Film Kaufman’s look at love, loss, legacy, and musicals is just downright bonkers. Apr 4, 2024 Full Review Manuel São Bento MSB Reviews From the incredibly perplexing narrative told through bizarre storytelling to its distinctly unconventional technical characteristics, Charlie Kaufman offers a remarkably complex film that can take various interpretations (requires more than one viewing). Rated: B Jul 24, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
