I'm Thinking of Ending Things

I'm Thinking of Ending Things ★★★★½

While there are definitely a few elements I'm left cold on, esspecially near the end of the film, I was able to stay with this film. Anyway, "figuring it out" is probably not the point. I think about the discussion about Lucy's landscape painting and her belief that you have to invision yourself looking out over the landscape to project emotion.

Kaufman has done his job by creating the frame with creative narrative conventions that invite audience participation. Our interaction with the film makes up half of the meaning. Go watch it again or read the book or watch an "explained" video to better understand what is textually happening, but this is the type of film that flurishes when you bring yourself to it.
