Having the most fun with it all, though, is the pairing of Toni Collette and David Thewlis, who operate will all manners of wild emotion and are utterly captivating in their extremeness. In the narrative they are agents of the surreal, and they are imbued with a particularly unpredictability that never allows you to take your eye off them once either of them has entered the screen. They’re captivating, and at times hilarious. After 20-plus years of watching Charlie Kaufman’s movies, audiences probably have a pretty good grip on whether or not they connect with his style – but it’s a promise that if you consider yourself a fan that you’re going to love I’m Thinking Of Ending Things. It features the very best of what the writer/director does so incredibly well, and will wrap itself around your brain like a coil as you work to decipher it all. It’s a phenomenal film that will go down as one of the best, if not the best, of 2020.
