I'm Thinking of Ending Things ★★★

I'm thinking of ending things like trying too hard to be included in the realm of Kaufmanesque which never has the intention to put the viewers in the same logic to understand what on earth is going on.

If you're looking for a mystery to solve or a riddle to break, don't push until you bend over backward just to connect all the haphazard dots in this movie. Just drop a hint: even the dreamlike logic cannot inherently fit to explain all the ambiguity. And worse, there're dozens of artsy and melancholic reference you need to unpack.

Kaufman's direction synergized in delicate square-framed cinematography, quirky design production, and nostalgic scores is too precious to be overlooked if you instead just decide to be lost in his self-conscious and compulsive narrative play.
