MD on IG Review: There Will Be Jud

I'm Thinking of Ending Things
is perhaps the most "Charlie Kaufman" of all Charlie Kaufman films. Where else would you find an agonizingly long, snow-swept road trip peppered with internalized relationship issues, depressing poetry readings and bizarrely lengthy diatribes about such disparate topics as A Woman Under the Influence and "Baby, It's Cold Outside", capped off by the main event, a family visit best described as "Franz Kafka's Meet the Parents". And how does this all tie in with a certain Rodgers & Hammerstein antagonist and an animated maggot-infested pig? Heck if I know, I gave up trying to figure it out during the dream ballet.

MD Rating: 5/10

I'm Thinking of Ending Things is now streaming on Netflix.
