    Get busy living, or get busy dying.

    Weeks lost in one cut, years lost between scenes, lives lost in a blink of an eye. Time is slipping through our fingers. You may mind your own problems, sort your own miseries as if they are the only thing in this world worthy of your attention. You may play pretend; pretend you are a fairy, or an actor, or an actor playing an actor playing an actor. Set a daily routine for…

    An interpretation of a mans life (or death?), perhaps everyone's life. Sonder is the word that comes to mind. This film will make you feel, even if you don't know why.

    I imagine some see this as pretentious material that is falling short of its intended message, but I think this is a really good movie, and I intend to discover it further. This is one you will have to rewatch, but man isn't discovering it initially fun...

    Second viewing in two weeks shows you how much I love this film. I do not normally watch the same movie in such a short time span but this one convinced me to do so.

    The second time around lets you pick up on many of the things you missed or misunderstood in the first viewing, from what Kaufman intended for his audience to pick up. And after watching YMS's analysis of this film makes you appreciate the effort and…

    "And the truth is I feel so angry, and the truth is I feel so fucking sad, and the truth is I've felt so fucking hurt for so fucking long and for just as long I've been pretending I'm OK. Just to get along. Just for...I don't know why. Maybe because no one wants to hear about my misery, because they have their own. Well, fuck everybody. Amen."

    Kunjungan yang kesekian kali, dan masih saja relevan! Pekat, pedas, namun sulit diabaikan kebenarannya! Tak terasa sdh 8 tahun Kaufman rehat, sungguh rindu dan sangat mewanti karya barunya!

    I have had this film on my watchlist for a very long time. The reason for that is that I think Charlie Kaufman is one of the most interesting screenwriters in the film industry, even though his style is easy to parody, as seen in Community, in the episode where Abed tries to create the ultimate meta-film. Among the films he has written that I like are Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich and my personal favorite…

    Brilliantly imagined and perfectly performed, Synecdoche, New York is so heartbroken and strange that it can be compared only to other Charlie Kaufman films.

    Synecdoche New York is truly a special film. After rewatching this film I had a truly special connection that I have had with few very films. It's hard to sum up in words what this film has come to mean to me in the last few days.
    When I watched it yesterday and this morning I was both over joyed and completely. I was over joyed at the Charlie Kauffman depicted the character of Caiden and how honest he was…

    One of the most emotional and captivating films I've ever seen and has given me a new found appreciation for Charlie Kaufman.

    Grim and full of misery, but such a thoughtful and profounding experience to view the study of the character performed by late Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Caden Cotard.

    Caden lives his deteriorating life, trying to come to terms to all the downturns, as well as trying to get affirmation from people around him by putting on his magnum opus of a play before his impending death.

    They weren't kidding about this being a postmodernist film. Hyperreality is prominent within this film…
