Synecdoche, New York

I’m not really sure what to think about this movie. I mean, I liked it, but it was just very different. Not that I was surprised. It was expected since it was written (and directed) by Charlie Kaufman, the guy who wrote Eternal Sunshine, Adaptation, and Being John Malkovich (three films I love). The cast is awesome and, of course, Philip Seymour Hoffman is amazing as the lead. It’s just a very long, slow, strange story. I don’t even know where to begin with the plot. Not something I’ll watch again, most likely, but something I’m glad I took the time to see. If you really like the other films mentioned, you’ll probably like this, too.
