    ★★½

    A hollow epic.

    Bernardo Bertolucci had a rare opportunity, he was a child being let free in a toy store. A 5 hour, big-budget, international cast, period piece with a very personal political message, this is every director's wet dream and Bertolucci got overwhelmed.

    An indescribable experience.

    This film was a blast to watch and fundamentally great. 75% of this film took place in 2 settings but it still kept my attention due to captivating dialogue and demanding performances from the 2 lead characters.

    Like most Charlie Kaufman films, 'I'm Thinking of Ending Things' isn't for everyone, but that is what is so great about it. Andrei Tarkovsky once said “A book read by a thousand different people is a thousand different books.”, this…
