    "I will be dying and so will you, and so will everyone here. That's what I want to explore. We're all hurtling towards death, yet here we are for the moment, alive. Each of us knowing we're going to die, each of us secretly believing we won't."

    I can't even really begin to put into words what I just witnessed, but I'll try. Roger Ebert called this film the best of the last decade, and I'm not sure whether I…

    Laughing, crying, smiles, tears. A surreal reflection on life. Wide in its scope, ambitious in its aims, and a masterpiece in my heart.

    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…

    An exercise in magic realism. A film that must be experienced, that can almost not be described or ranked, it feels almost an insult to the film to do so. However, that is the world we live in, one obsessed with ranks and descriptions. I'm obsessed with them too, but the self loathing comes through a lot. I know that is a lot about time and not the film, but that's the only way to discuss Synecdoche, New York.

    A devastating study on how the inevitability of death drives us to erect monuments to ourselves in frantic grasps at immortality. Ironic that a film so preoccupied with death would hold all of life in it, all filtered through Kaufman's brand of poetic, heady absurdism.
