I'm Thinking of Ending Things

Jesse Plemons, Jessie Buckley and Toni Collette star in this psychological thriller from Oscar-winning filmmaker Charlie Kaufman (Synecdoche, New York).

A woman (Buckley) who is thinking about breaking up with her boyfriend (Plemons) finds herself spiraling down a psychological rabbit hole after making an unexpected detour with him on a road trip. Based on the acclaimed debut novel by Ian Reid (though Plemons promises "Just wait. He Kaufman-ised it").

It’s not just a quirky, morose downer of a movie — it’s didactically morose.

Bleak, bewildering, and a bit bonkers. Kaufman’s uncompromising originality is always welcome — but you’ll need time to let this one percolate.

Buckley and Plemons are left to carry that water for much of I'm Thinking's 134-minute runtime, and they're both fantastically game, infusing the movie's heady concepts with a naturalism that borders on heroic.

With his new film, Charlie Kaufman again proves that if you want something to make you feel trapped in a terrifying claustrophobic nightmare for ever and ever ... well, he’s your guy.

On many levels it's a bold, brilliant work, uncompromising in its darkness and distinguished by rigorously committed performances from a superb principal cast. Yet in many fundamental ways, the movie is frustrating; it's frequently a hard slog, as distancing as it is illuminating.

It’s a beautiful, strange terrarium of a film, inviting us to gaze through the glass and wonder what’s going on underneath. Just as funny and creepy as it needs to be, the film is Kaufman at the top of his game, firing on all cylinders. A master of his own unique, unclassifiable craft.

For all of its self-insistent detours and high-minded indulgences, I’m Thinking of Ending Things rarely feels like a concept in search of a movie. There’s a fullness and vitality to it that shines through even when the film is chasing its own tail, which is basically all it wants to do.
