    They love each other but not as much as they love adrenaline.
    Wonder if the Safdies ever mention this one -- seemz formative to their thematic arena.

    ★★

    Dug the paralyzed fight + car chase. That monster squad costuming was cute. All the rest felt like low effort wannabe B-Movie, where the bulk is comprised of exposition/build-up without any depth to the characterization or wit in its dialogue.

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★★½

    Ouch

    A lush, ominous spiral of memory, compassion, all that longing and knocking about your noodle that won't ever quit - you don't know why the memory or heart pang came up - beating back against time.

    Will be a bit overlong for some, I assume, but Kaufman colors the film with plenty of stylistic interludes, glimpses into both 'characters' deteriorating sense of anchor in the blizzard tide and our endless want for distraction.

    ★★½

    Great production design and cinematography for a very tired-not-wired script.
