In the latest bizarre head trip from Charlie Kaufman, I'm Thinking of Ending Things follows a young woman who travels with her new boyfriend to his parents house. Upon arriving, she comes to question everything she thought she knew about him, and herself. We'll be breaking down the details of the complex story and its themes, the important elements to Jake's character we learn, and explaining the ending and what it means. LOTS to look at with this one.

  • After the movie I stared at my laptop for like 10 min trying to understand what everything meant and I felt like I was about to have an aneurysm 😂 I thought the door with the tape and scratches was symbolic of his suicidal mind and I knew he was the janitor but I just couldn’t understand how Lucy fit into all of it 😂 having this dude say he immediately knew what was going on made me feel sooooo dumb lmao

  • Movie is an adaptation. Charlie Kaufmann did a good job but he is overrated. The author deserves credit for the story.

  • so does that mean that the reason the girl keeps saying "i wanna go" is because he wants to comity suicide? i didnt get my his "ideal" woman would wanna go home but if its just him always. then her saying that is actually just voicing his desire to die? any other explanations?

    • I took it as Jake knowing that his 'dream girl' was always going to reject him on some level and pull away from him, putting her own desires above his own, but I think your interpretation of it being a metaphor for his suicide makes more sense.

  • It wasn't necessarily a bad movie, but GD, as a person who's struggled with depression and anxiety his whole life, it really brought me down the day that I watched it. Although I do think it was overly long for a movie with this sort of message (coming from someone who places Kaufman's Synechdoche, New York as one of his top 3 favorite movies).

    Manuel MarinManuel Marin6 ngày trước
  • My take of the movie was that Jake's upbringing (his unstable mother and slaughtering of animals) made him into a secluded, schizophrenic serial killer who was never caught and that Lucy was dead the whole time. Real time was him as the janitor. His vibe is sketchy and uneasy on purpose. The girl in the ice cream shop warning her that she should stay is a clear indication of what the potential concept could be. Maybe this is just what I wanted the movie to be like ;)

  • At the same time, this guy has had only one big tragedy in his life: his own lack of action. People all over the world are persecuted for their ethnicity, religion, skin color, gender, orientation, nationality. He had two parents in America, healthy body, white male who could accomplish shit - and even if he couldn't, he could have found personal happiness by fulfilling personality-wise and starting a family. If he ever forced himself to feel that desperation that he is unhappy maybe he would have broken apart from his own living in the mind and started really living. I mean, there are millions on the planet who would gladly switch places with him - now that's fucking bleak. This movie isn't bleak, this movie is about a guy who squandered his time - which is fine, unless you're not fine with it -AND HE ISN'T. People get raped, lose their kids, their loved ones, succumb to horrible illnesses, disabilities... He was healthy enough to work as a janitor in his fucking old age. Jesus, what a wasted life. Because the only things that stood between him and real life was his own standing in one spot. We are all exposed to media like no other generation on the planet ever was before us, to movies and narratives and stories, obviously we use them to try to make sense of our identity, we can get lost in them if we don't fight for strong sense of identity, or we try to transplant them to make them into identity. Challenge of realizing those are works of fiction are life has a bit different rules is everyone's. So honestly - it's not about that pretentiousness is wrong - it's the fucking privilege. How privileged can you be to waste a perfectly good life in normal country, where you're not persecuted, maybe unnoticed, but that isn't a conviction if there is something to notice about you, without physical or mental illness, without impotency, without criminality... All wasted on some sitting around and watching life go by. It's honestly a case of insane privilege. The filmmaker should go homeless for a while. I guarantee he would quickly realize his movie is right, yes - but also wrong because we can find the impulse inside of ourselves to survive and then to thrive but self-awareness and objectiveness about reality are necessary here. Hard to appreciate what you have - if those pigs were the only thing standing between him and poverty, it would be a movie how poverty destroys identity by forcing humans into criminality... but we are not fucking spineless, muscle-less toys. Time and death take us all but seriously, time we have can be used. *sigh* I don't belong to this branch of cinema.

  • Society creates media images of prettified people and prettified reality - even in horrors. When you think about it dealing with real demons or posessions would still be easier than having your mother die or being raped or losing a child, etc. The movie seems to be about the fact that this guy lives only inside his own head and he creates images from movies and society and his own feelings of being inadequate - but at the same time... what choice does he have? Other than living in his own mind? What's outside of it is bleak.

But nope, and now that I have watched your explanation i can conclude that I still understand none of the movie at all and I'm still very confused

  • After seeing this movie I just felt a confusing sadness, mostly because of what the pig said in that final scene, "Someone has to be the pig with maggots" and it's true, there will be always somebody who has to be the lonely, never loved, burried under their mistakes and risks that they didn't take type of person. That's how our world is and it's not always a matter of beauty or an interesting personality, if you're not a forward person the world is gonna run you over and you're going to be.. fine, not happy, not satisfied, just.. fine, alive and that's it. Makes you think of all the good you have that you take for granted, there's people out there that doesn't have a voice of their own or an ear to listen to them and that makes me.. Idk, guilty I guess. It's a great movie and a piece of art, like everything that leads you to deep reflection on things.

  • Hold up. They talked about the rapey song... then when fake jake and fake Lucy dance in the hallway you see the janitor try to rape or attack Lucy? Anybody catch that??!!

  • I guess I had it wrong. My interpretation that the Lucy that we followed was mostly real. That after she "ended things" with him (which I just figured was implied,) he was left all alone, never finding anyone else, so he holds unto that memory, as that's the only thing left in his life. He makes the fantasy relationship of the two that follows the rest of the points in his life, like his parents dying. And that with him becoming older, his fantasy starts to distort, like how they met being changed to the scene of the movie. Lucy changing once again her story on how they met, alongside the "can't say no" thing made me think that she was "ending things" with him. The actor being killed by the janitor made me think that for Lucy, the old Jake had died, so she had to move on. Something Jake couldn't.

  • the movie is like the visual representation of dementia like how Everywhere at the end of time was the audio representation of dementia, this film is like the visual After watching this film it settled in my head far better than EATEOT, don't know exactly why but I am a visual learner My grandmother developed sundowners around the middle of last year. I remember her asking me when my parents would come to pick me up and that it was getting late. I told her that I lived here, and she seemed really confused and just walked off. I also remember her going around and locking the doors several times before my mother had to tell her to just go to bed. Another time she asked me what my name was, and I told her it was Devlyn, and she just said, "Oh, that's my granddaughter's name! What a coincidence." I never had a strong connection with my grandmother since she lived in Illinois and we constantly moved and she only visited at Christmas, but the whole time she was there just felt weird. My mom said that if she ever developed it, she wanted us to shoot her in the back of the head. I know that if she develops it that I might as well, and the thought just terrifies me, especially sense I already have memory issues, and I'm still a minor. This film made me feel high

  • I will say that this review was more entertaining than the actual movie. I attempted to watch the movie although the long car ride to the guy's parents house was nearly unbearable to watch. At one point in the movie, I fell into a DEEP sleep....then woke up and tried to finish it and guess what happened? If you guessed that I fell asleep AGAIN, then you win the prize. This movie is HORRIBLE. despite receiving mostly favorable reviews. The issue is that the movie masquerades as an intellectually stimulating film that is so deep and many people are afraid to say that they don't like the movie because they don't want to be stereotyped as being " too stupid to understand it." The movie lacks a creative approach by using the same old " it was all in his mind" concept. This is a lazy approach that has been over-used many times in an attempt to keep the audience guessing by making things happen that seemingly don't make sense when in reality -NONE OF IT IS REALLY HAPPENING AT ALL . It's the same old - it was all a dream...it was all in their head...blah...blah.....blah.... For this to be the concept, this movie could have at least been far more entertaining. It fails at being the intellectual, mind boggling Masterpiece that it wants us to believe that it is and any movie that puts me to sleep twice is NOT a good movie, PERIOD. So, for all of you that consider yourselves to be reasonably intelligent, and you did NOT like this movie....don't feel bad, it's NOT you! The movie SUCKED.

  • If your movie is so overcomplicated with subtly and pretentious that you have to look up and explanation then you failed at good storytelling and connecting with the viewer. This is the type of movie who smells its own farts , drives a Prius and is a vegan and never shuts up about how they are better then you for doing so. Fuck this movie and if you think this is deep or a great movie fuck you too.
