In this episode, we’re joined by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman who shares insights into his Netflix adaptation of Iain Reid’s novel I’m Thinking of Ending Things – a tightly wound metaphysical thriller that tackles our assumptions about identity and relationships in Kaufman’s signature surrealistic style.
Speaking with VIFF’s Associate Director of Programming, Curtis Woloschuk at the 2020 Festival, Kaufman discusses why he was drawn to adapting Reid’s novel for the screen, the challenges of filming the long driving scenes and how his work leaves a lot open for viewer interpretation.
