    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★★½

    Charlie Kaufman's second tribute to outsider art and fake movies this year. I feel like I could mansplain this film pretty well if prompted. I've noticed that most reviews are not talking about some key points but maybe they're being deliberately coy. I'm going to resist the temptation for now as I'm sure we'll get dozens of explanation videos shortly after release.

Strong acting (Dudley Dursley is MVP) and generally well-made, just major structural issues as it takes a long time for the plot to actually start.
