I'm Thinking of Ending Things

Could have been an all-time "watch with an opening night crowd that's about 75% misled by marketing" movie in the better world where this would somehow get a wide release.

EDIT AFTER SLEEPING ON IT:
mostly finding myself admiring the gambit of a Charlie Kaufman take on a Donald Kaufman screenplay/source material more than I'm moved by either the content or the exercise. Kinda wish there was a tad more Persona in its DNA (the hints of such were the most interesting thing in it to me, and definitely would've been a new addition to his whole thing but would he even be any good at it if he pushed that farther), but I'll take Kaufman's Horse Money, especially in the trappings of such prestige. How rare is it to have an American film at this budget level that does things with onscreen geography, even if it's just to fuck with you? Or to give such room for its lead actors?
