Why yes Kaufman, stretching things out a little too long DOES make things seem weird! A disaster of pacing and character to such an extent it's making me question how much I liked Kaufman's previous films, something I did not expect going in. Perhaps he needs a producer to tell him no? It's hollow philosophizing about a hollow life that becomes quite obvious and tired after about half an hour. And if the events proper won't put you to sleep, listening to Pauline Kael's writing sure will.

I'm not sure what is more frightening and lonely than realizing a life wasted. Kaufman is no stranger melancholy and this film is no brighter. He slowly peels back the layers of a finely crafted think-piece, not to reach an "ah ha" moment, but to emphasize the complexity of memory and aspiration. Plemons and Jessie Buckley are absolutely fantastic in very grounded performances, while Thewlis and Collette get the joy of chewing some serious scenery. Not for everyone but I loved it.

Its characters are never real and its atmosphere never anything but off-putting, so its weird twists and turns are nothing more than abstractly interesting. Without empathy, the film becomes a puzzle with a nice picture on the box (the cinematography is great) but only five or six pieces inside that Kaufman takes absolutely ages to assemble (and they never all really connect). Disappointing, but its layers are undeniably provocative.

Moving from “existential nightmare” to “existential nightmare in 4:3”, Kaufman builds upon an effective yet lacking book to make a wonderfully uncomfortable, traumatisingly funny, and characteristically sad movie. Amazing turns from everyone, with Buckley building on her earlier promise to give a bravura performance, and fantastic claustrophobic cinematography. It’s certainly Kaufman’s least accessible yet, and a little overlong, but nonetheless up there with his best work.

"C'mon, Charlie Kaufman, some of us have work in the morning!" Seriously, I get what Kaufman was attempting. The picture takes the dramatic conceit of an impending breakup & uses it to explore existential questions of identity, perspective, loss, and time. Still, those things could've been done in an entertaining film that isn't so aimless & haughty. The shifting nature of the story makes it hard to root for (or even observe) a character with interest. Avoid.

Much like Adaptation., Kaufman doesn't explain directly what is going on and trusts that the viewer will be patient with his style of storytelling. This may be the most Charlie Kaufman thing I've seen. It's just so weird. That being said, the acting is solid and I for one thought there was quite a bit to unpack here by the end. The two car scenes drag a bit, but it's an otherwise fascinating story. Strange, absurdly funny, depressing, told in a way only this writer can. I loved it.

Kaufman finally turns the screw too tightly here, presenting some intriguing and interesting ruminations on mortality and perceptions of time and identity, but can't tie them to a central thesis or concept, cinematically or otherwise. This means the film is ultimately a collection of long-winded expositional drops, with only the supporting performers shining through (Collette and Thewlis are terrific). A disappointment from the usually masterful Kaufman.

Kaufman shouldn't be directing. Eternal Sunshine and Being John Malkovich are two of my all time favorite movies, but his work as a director has mostly been monotonous and boring. In fact IToET is practically begging you to hate it. While the individual performances are good, I thought the leads had zero chemistry. The constant referential and philosophical monologues were extremely boring. The film feels very awkward, and when combined with the lifeless plodding pace I almost turned it off.

I hate complexity for complexities sake.. If you can throw away the first half hour of a movie, and lose not a single thing from the meaning of a film, why have you wasted half an hour of my life? Kaufman is always chaotic and complex but it generaly had a purpose. Here, it's just for show, and some of the most boring 2 hours of your life.

Melancholy is one of my least favorite feelings. So how you do rate a film that so successfully achieves its goal of making you feel melancholy? In any event, there's so much great stuff here, but the car scenes and the ending (interpretive dance and on) just really dragged.

Not enough breadcrumbs to go by. I don't mind meta or subtext. But when the whole structure is referential monologuing it becomes a tedious onanotary exercise in vapidness. Words lose meaning if they have no ground. They float aimlessly. You can pull out your Thesaurus and make a RNG script based on it, with quotes by writers and poets past. That doesn't require talent. Cohesion does.

Charlie Kaufman's worldview is one of the least interesting in all of cinema, and the ways he chooses to express it are dour and juvenile. He uses irony, cruelty and wacky surrealism as a safety net to protect himself from actually saying anything worthwhile. And it looks terrible.

Kaufman doing Mullholand Dr. without quite understanding Lynch's deft handling of the relationship between surface narrative and abstracted narrative. He overloads the surface with portentous and significant absurdist imagery and dialogue, contrasts it with a mundane yet incongruous side-story, and then expects the viewer to either accept the absurdity at face value or not make the connection between the two within the first ten minutes. I still liked it but...it's more of a Lost Highway

This is exactly the kind of film I've been craving! Is it Kaufman's masterpiece? You be the judge. Watching tips: don't try to make guesses or solve puzzles until the bitter end. Just watch closely, suspect all literary, film and musical references and be amazed. Then watch it again. If you scratched your head after the first try, don't worry. You're doing it right. This one will be discussed for many years to come.

The first hour maintains a taut balance of tension and modern angst propelled by a lot of good writing and acting. The final 70 minutes unravel the whole affair, appearing more like a legitimate assertion of self-seriousness that it was earlier thought to be mocking. Amidst this intellectual discord I found myself thinking, "Is this made for me? Am I supposed to be drawn in by this? If I find this riveting I might be lost." For the sake of my soul I had to reject it outright.

Feeling a bit underwhelmed by this right now ngl. Maybe expectations were too high off of anomalisa (forget even Synecdoche). Feels like there's less to chew on for sure and Feels like he's playing it pretty safe here. There's some "surreal" moments, but thematically it feels a little shallow (in comparison to Kaufman's other directorial works). A bit of a regression to his writing only era. Maybe a re-watch when I have no expectations, months down the line, is in order.

One of the more potent deep dives into the workings of the human mind I've ever seen in film. Kaufman does an extraordinary job of filming the psyche's own complex mechanisms, from memory to emotion to abstract thinking to reflection to imagination to introspection, wrapped up in some deeply cynical existential musings (vintage Kaufman) while simultaneously possessing some of his most outright hilarious screenplay material since 'Being John Malkovich' (also vintage Kaufman).

This is a big win for me. I haven't been this unnerved by a movie since Hereditary last year. It's absolutely anxiety-inducing, in the most lovely way. The cast carries this movie almost as much as Kaufman itself. It's a lot, and I likely won't be watching it for a little while, but I greatly enjoyed it. Lovely end scene.

It's almost like Kaufman saved his most monotone, esoteric material for himself to direct. The surface level themes of this movie are apparent from the slow beginning in the car. They arrive at their destination, and nothing progresses. They even get back in the car, and still nothing progresses. Some weird Kaufman flourishes are sandwiched in there, with an incomprehensible ending. Come on, Charlie, help me out a little here. I may revisit this patience tester in some distant decade.

A somewhat interesting movie that became annoying and eventually intolerable about the time they started dancing. It plays out like a confusing nightmare. If you try to make sense of this, your head will explode. By the time the cartoons start, it has gone deep into crazy town. This must be what it's like to lose your mind. The final act is batshit crazy and whack-a-doodle weird. Possibly worth watching if you can accept the insanity of it. Overall, I'm not impressed. The ending really sucked.

Hard not to wonder about the thought process behind the third act's changes from the novel: seems almost as if it was fear of being accused of "transphobia" because of the criminal aspect. But then, why leave the earlier clues about that but without any follow-up? Was the whole last part redone or what? Whatever the answers, something went slightly awry here, and, despite the interesting addition of Kael etc., the unraveling of the film leads to an unfortunate dissipation of emotion and tension.

It probably works for some people, but for me it was incredibly boring. All the discussions about books, movies, ideas not rarely sound extremely forced. The suggestion of everything being projections and experiences that shaped the character is interesting, but the movie tries too hard to show itself as something too deep or complex; a constant attempt to look smart with some supposedly great metaphors. The actual meaning of the movie is far from its intended greatness or uniqueness.

"How can a landscape look sad?", asks Thewlis' backward father at one point. Well, in the same way that the girl's interiority is found in a snowy nightmare where things are off, mirrored, caricatured, poeticized. She sees the future and the past and all is depressed and haunted. And there is no way home, it's been a terrible mistake to come. Kaufman's world is so lonely - it's of the outsider who never got in. What a stone cold masterpiece this often is, and how hard it falls off its high-wire.

I feel bad, I really love some of Charlie Kaufman work, it is so fresh, entertaining and shows glimpses of real human experience. But with this movie he tries to do the whole human experience in a boring and weird for the sake of being weird movie. It felt like he was trying so hard to be like Lynch or surrealistic, but not getting there. This movie came to me as a dumb way of doing deep cinema and storytelling.

I came to this thinking there was a puzzle I needed to solve, that there was some big twist. That Kaufman was here to dazzle, like a Nolan or a Villeneuve. That made my viewing experience somewhat tedious and unrewarding but that was the wrong approach. While there is a "twist" of sorts, it's not interesting in it's ingenuity but in how it casts the whole movie in a different light. Once done, this turns it into a great character study that awards and encourages deep analysis.

You knew Kaufman's lovable sprinklings of pretentiousness would be here, but it seems the lid on Kaufman's sprinkles fell off this time around. I appreciate the effort made in tackling existential heaviness, but I can't help assuming it's source material explores those deep questions with greater skill. By the end of the third act you're left sitting there feeling like you've been edged for two hours with no payoff. There IS substance here, it's just half an inch deep and spread a mile wide.

It's tempting to call a film like this a "puzzle", but in many ways it's very straightforward, especially when know where it's going. Kaufman has a way of externalizing the psychology of his characters, in this case Jesse Plemons, and doing it in a way that doesn't flag that we're really inhabiting someone's mental landscape.

The most abstract, esoteric Kaufman film yet. I usually tend to roll my eyes at Kaufman and his stories about lonely single men and the fantasy dream women they hope will save them, but this atleast seemed to be somewhat self-aware and critical of the trope, the keyword here being "somewhat". However, the psychological horror elements were done very well, and Toni Collette being completely unhinged will never not be an absolute delight to watch.

I'm wondering if obfuscating so much about your story is a good or bad thing here. It's to be expected with Kaufman I suppose. The puzzlebox nature made the themes less powerful but maybe when I see it in 10 years it will mean more then? Pauline Kael segment was funny and there were a couple good bits of humour like that. Toni Collette is fucking amazing as usual.

This isn't bad by any means, but at about the half way mark everything starts to fall apart and become more incomprehensible, more overblown and less interesting. Luckily we have Jessie Buckley as an anchor to keep us from drowning - she holds everything together enough to make this watchable, but all things considered I'd say pass on this and watch Synecdoche New York instead, because that deals with similar themes, is grander in scope and has a firmer grip on what it's trying to accomplish.

Movie studios mess with some great director's opus and they make it all cliched and mainstream, right? Well, I think big shot Hollywood suits were probably the only things that kept Kaufman's past movies grounded enough to be watchable. This one has a brilliant hour or so but then descends into this chaotic babble. A kind of pastiche which is fun to talk about in your film class but to watch... Christ. It isn't just navel-gazing, it's having your entire face completely inside Kaufman's belly.

Original and interesting. Buckley is wonderful, and so is some of Kaufman's direction and writing (the inner monologues, in particular). Elsewhere he goes overboard (get that animated pig out of here). Kaufman seems to have been given free rein, and whether the film is better for it overall is difficult to say. As for the games of identity, they led where I thought they would. It's an amazing idea for a twist that unfortunately sort of fizzles out instead of hitting as hard as it might have.

I don't know what happened but I need more like it. The most ambiguous of Kaufman's films. Also the most unsettling. The conversations throughout edge into Harold Pinter's territory of content-tone dissonance and on-a-dime trajectory changes (especially the dinner conversation). Highly intertextual and ripe for (re)interpretation. 2nd watch: Not remarkable within Kaufman's oeuvre and usual genre, but a great addition to the surreal quiet horror of Lynch, Mother!, Melancholia, and the like.

If a film mostly set in a car, and featuring a character reciting Pauline Kael's review of a "A Woman Under the Influence" without acknowledging that it's Kael sounds good to you, well put aside 135 minutes and watch this.

For me, this is Kaufman's "Burn After Reading." It does a lot of things I've seen him do before, but not as well. It feels like something I should love, but I'm not on board with the structure. Its "rug pull" feels unearned and its structure leaves the viewer flailing rather than bringing them along for the ride. I figured out what it was trying to say eventually, but still don't think the frustration I felt getting there was ultimately worth the time.

An exceptional script and equally impressive performances make this beautifully stylized film a work of art.

I've still yet to determine whether or not the story works for me, because I still haven't figured it out.

Having seen this twice, once whilst knowing fuck-all about it and again whilst knowing about the narrative trickery within, I can safely say this film has ruined my life. It's made up of long dialogue scenes between people who don't want to talk to each other, working brilliantly at that, and the surreal passages (Eva HD poem, Pauline Kael review) would fall on their face if it weren't for the slippery nature of identity here. Very weird, utterly oppressive, and also miserable -- I like.

Early on, there's the potential for something interesting (if not pretentious)...and then it all just laughably disintegrates into what can only be described as parody. It's as if some people got together and filmed a bunch of random imagery and meaningless dialogue in an effort to mock surrealist films. This is a modern version of a black and white film depicting a clown reciting a poem in French to a goat. Just silly, self-absorbed, and unwatchable.

Even the absolute worst Charlie Kaufman movie has a couple moments of shine. Namely, the highlight of the film, early on, happens during a windshield wipers slapping snow scene and the exchange of thoughts between girlfriend and boyfriend. The viewer is called upon to wonder what's real and what's false, and what it all means but by the end of it, you just won't give damn.

Months later, I'm still cold from watching this movie. Some don't/can't/won't let art inside. And if you don't trust the film - give yourself over to it completely - then it might not work for you. If you cannot empathize with the desperation and vast hopelessness presented here, you might not find it of note. But, I'm glad this film exists. And I found it devastating to watch this man. What can he do? Every step he took likely made sense at the time, but he never found what he wanted...

The weirdness and the uncertainty and the ever-hanging question of just what the hell is going on kept me attentive, even when the pacing and philosophizing overwhelms the material. Something like 35 minutes of characters talking in close-ups in a car? I don't mind inaction if the dialogue crackles, but this really pushes it. Ultimately, this experience was indelible. I could not stop thinking about this film for days.

Interesting style but some of it fails, such as the pig. The dialogue is sometimes incredibly fascinating but the script will occasionally drown the movie as well. Buckley puts in really solid work here Collette is the most memorable in the limited time she's present. Excellent usage of colours. Often feels like they're driving into the void which is a great way to explore the themes. I love snow in movies. A lot of greatness but some seriously dicey decisions hinder it. Undeniably experimental.

The inner monologue of a delusional old man, hit by the wind of time like a storm. Interesting, but... not always, especially the car drive monologues: i understand that we are in a inner monologue, so they are appropriate, but they felt like Kaufman's filler material. The film it's just an exposition of fantasies of a lonely janitor we don't know: Once you have to key to interpret the film, it even becomes didascalic, there isn't much to think about outside the puzzle and Kaufman dreadness.
