Magnolia Dentin’s review published on Letterboxd:
I'm thinking of Ending Things
It's maybe a bit pretentious and I liked that.
There were moments I loved but it wasn't all the moments
Didn't love it. Wish I loved it.
"It's nice out isn't it?"
"Oh yes, yes. It's fine."
I might love the book. I should try reading the book.
I won't but I should try anyway
Maybe time will soften the sharper edges
"What are you thinking about?"
"Oh, nothing. Nothing. I liked it, I really did. It was nice, it really was..."
Or maybe I do love it and just haven't come around to accepting that yet.
Maybe that this is the only film I've been looking forward to from this year that I've actually had opportunity to see is clouding my experience. It is paced and lingering on the details, playing with absurdities and inconstancies and I love that. I just didn't feel it this time. Maybe I've just been overwhelmed with the absurd and inconsistent lately. Maybe helplessness and discomfort aren't what I need right now...
"Did you say something?"
"No. Just thinking"
"Someone has to be a pig infested with maggots, why not you?"
"Wait. WTF? I wasn't paying attention. How the hell did we get here? What? what? what?!"
