Synecdoche, New York

Synecdoche, New York ★★★★★

I don't think I've cried this much in my entire life.

A second watch made it all the more heartbreaking, while also giving me an opportunity to pick up on even more symbolism.

I don't even know where to start analyzing Synecdoche, New York, so I'm not going to.

It's so depressing, but it's not heavy handed at all, and that's something really hard to accomplish.

It's just so incredibly honest.

How something as surreal as this can be so grounded is beyond me.

A perfect companion piece to Anomalisa, as this has the spectacle and personal level of Caden's harrowing play, and Anomalisa is on the small scale, yet big
meaning of Adele's miniscule paintings.

Losing Phillip Seymour Hoffman is one of the worst things to happen in recent years.
