New Podcast from Kevin McLenithan on Christ and Pop Culture: Seeing and Believing 264 | Charlie Kaufman’s I’m Thinking of Ending Things and Carol Reed’s The Third Man

With Wade on vacation, Kevin calls on Sarah Welch-Larson this week to help make sense of Charlie Kaufman’s latest brain-bender. I’m Thinking of Ending Things, now streaming on Netflix, features Kaufman’s trademark metafictional flourishes and thematic concerns; does it stand alongside Synecdoche, NY and Anomalisa in pulling off the balancing act between “challenging” and “inscrutable”? Sarah also takes the time to talk about one of the all-time great noirs, Carol Reed’s postwar mystery The Third Man.
