I'm thinking of ending things. Once this thought arrives, it stays. IIt sticks, it lingers, it dominates. There's not much I can do about it, trust me. It doesn't go away. It's there whether I like it or not. It's there when I eat, when I go to bed. It's there when I sleep. It's there when I wake up. It's always there. Always.

Major disappointment from one of my favourite filmmakers.
I don't leave reviews, ever. However in this case I simply must.
I have been waiting to watch this film for quite some time, as an avid fan of Kaufman I couldn't wait to see his newest creation. The trailer was amazing, which only built on my expectation.
This film is a complete disappointment. It feels almost forced and the direction is terrible (4:3 aspect ratio for no reason, most of the shots aren't thought through, the surrealistic elements are forced for the sake of a 'surrealistic touch'). What saves the film, to a certain degree, is the dialogue and the acting (Toni Colette and David Thewlis are, as always, phenomenal). The plot tries too hard to be complex and unpredictable.
Big thumbs down to a filmmaker whom I absolutely adore.
