I'm Thinking of Ending Things

I'm Thinking of Ending Things ★★★½

It seems criminal to rate this film anything under 3/5 stars simply because of its incredible atmosphere and imagery, as well as stunning performances from Thewlis and Colette, but I won’t lie - I didn’t sit through the whole thing. This film is the first I have turned off before the ending in my adult life since “P” (2005) and not for the same reason. I am somewhat ashamed of this, as I absolutely loved the scene in the parents house halfway in thanks to the aforementioned Thewlis and Colette, as well as some beautiful attention to detail to do with the interesting themes of time passing they were introducing, but I just could not take anymore of the couple’s car monologues despite some of the story compelling me. I hope a rewatch will help, and I would like to read the source material to appreciate it more as well as actually finishing the movie, but I’m not sure I’ll sacrifice myself so many brain cells trying to decipher the pretence of the script in the car scenes just for a very cool shot of a dog shaking over and over in a loop Christopher Nolan would have a field day on.
