Ending Things 5th best film of 2020, says indieWIRE critics' poll

indieWIRE conducted their annual poll of over 230 film critics to find the 50 best movies of 2020, and I'm Thinking of Ending Things came in at number 5! Nice.

Per tradition, IndieWire asked over 200 film critics around the world to rank their favorite films of the year. We tallied up the numbers and present the 50 highest rated titles below.

The 2020 IndieWire Critics Poll featured reviewers from major trade publications such as Variety and The Hollywood Reporter as well as critics from local newspapers and websites, freelancers, and contributors on film from across Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.


5. “I’m Thinking of Ending Things”

Director: Charlie Kaufman

Cast: Jesse Plemons, Jessie Buckley, Toni Collette, David Thewlis

Read IndieWire’s review: If “I’m Thinking of Ending Things” feels like both an act of self-parody for its director and also a radical departure from his previous work, that’s because it takes Kaufman’s usual fixations and turns them inside out. While this leaky snow globe of a breakup movie is yet another bizarre and ruefully hilarious trip into the rift between people, it’s not — for the first time — about someone who’s trying to cross it. On the contrary, Kaufman is now telling a story about the rift itself. (Source)

Nomadland, Never Rarely Sometimes Always, First Cow, and Lovers Rock were ahead of CK's film.
