The voice of the FabTV interviewer of Charlie Kaufman, director and screenwriter** of I’m Thinking of Ending Things (Netflix, 9.4), is thin and reedy, and the speaking style is the usual 65% vocal fry + 35% sexy baby — par for the course for 20something women these days. (Just ask Lake Bell.) And she sounds as if she’s “reading” the questions, and that someone else may have written them. She could be a court stenographer reading back testimony.
Kaufman’s film opens two weeks from today.
** Kaufman adapted Iain Reed’s 2006 novel of the same name.
