I’m Thinking of Ending Things movie review: Charlie Kaufman’s kooky Netflix film is a mind-bending trip

Sunday, 6 September 2020

Charlie Kaufman’s ominously named new film, I’m Thinking of Ending Things, with its lower-case title design, is cinema in all-caps. And perhaps the best breakup movie since Ari Aster’s Midsommar.After a career spent trying to piece together the broken fragments of the fragile male psyche, Kaufman, in his new film, introduces — for the first time — a female protagonist. But she might not be real. It’s complicated.

 

 

 

 

 

Played by Jessie Buckley, the character — like most Kaufman characters — is essentially an extension of the filmmaker himself. And as terrific as Buckley is as The Young Woman, a part of me would like to believe that she was cast simply so that Kaufman could add another layer of surrealism to his story. Buckley’s co-star, you see, is Jesse Plemons, who plays the boyfriend, Jake. An equally valid counterargument could be made that Jake is the protagonist. But he might not be real either.
