    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★½

    Charlie Kaufman lets us down, by being deliberately, viscerally confusing, to the point of meaninglessness. Yet I find it quite compelling after the first twenty minutes or so. 

    Ultimately empty, though.

  • The Tree, the Mayor and the Mediatheque

    The Tree, the Mayor and the Mediatheque

    ★★½

    After watching Call My Agent! on Netflix, we wanted to watch some French films, and maybe with some of the actors and/or directors who were in the series. So we started with this.

    It's described as a comedy. It's mildly funny in places, but it's mainly a kind of social commentary thing about land use in rural France. Enjoyable enough.
