Screener Squad: I’m Thinking of Ending Things

I'm Thinking Of Ending Things Movie Review


The newest film from Charlie Kaufman is a film about boy meets girl, girl meets boy’s parents, boys parents throw girl through an existential crisis. Or is that what the movie is about? When it comes to Charlie Kaufman it’s not clear if the message is within the film itself, or if the message is within the thoughts you have while watching the film. Does Charlie Kaufman faithfully adapt this book into film? Is this technically horror? Are our critics Adrian, Alex, Brad, and Rae able to figure it out? Do you know why you’re here, who you are, who you’re meant to be? Is Robert Zemeckis a hack? Find out the answer to some of those questions if any in our review.
