    So this was out of this world. It is very, very complex.
    The movie is the kind of movie that you need to see more than one time to get the full thing out of it, but it does not require to be seen twice to be enjoyed. You can watch this movie for the first time, and not get all the stuff in it and still find it incredibly beautiful.

    Kaufman himself said he aimed to make a film…

    Ma'am, your house is on fire.

    Do you have the urge to take a trip into one of the most eccentric and brilliant minds working in cinema today? If so, here is the film for you. This film completely encapsulates not only who Charlie Kaufman is as a filmmaker, but the entirety of his worldview. Just as 2001: A Space Odyssey did for Stanley Kubrick and The Tree of Life did for Terrence Malick, Kaufman's mind-melting quirckfest is his undivided…

    It's reach sometimes exceeds its grasp, but how could it not, when your filmmaking is this ambitious?

Watch how theatre director Caden Cotard is brought to live and put to death by a tour de force performance of the legendary Philip Seymour Hoffman who may even top his role in ‘The…

    Charlie Kaufman is a distinctive writer of quirky films that usually subvert formal structures and are built around narcissistic characters who lack self-awareness. To say that Synecdoche, New York takes places within Kaufman’s usual territory would be an understatement and in his directorial debut he takes it one step further in a messy, frustrating and fascinating film. Filled with strange images, characters and situations that sometimes make sense and sometimes don’t, it’s one of the most unique films that I’ve…
