    ★★★★½

    I just recently discovered the first two so of course I was going to check this one out too. And of course it's great. Of course the dialogue is interesting, the fights believable, the overreactions and escalations familiar to any couple. And of course Greece is beautiful.

    Synecdoche, New York

    ★★

    The second acclaimed movie with Philip Seymour Hoffman I've tried to watch in the past year, and as with The Master, I just can't get into it. I think that now after trying to watch both these movies, I've realized that I have a hard time with movies that I feel are too abstract, and lacking in narrative. For SNY specifically, I can respect it for its ambition and how creatively meta it got, but I think I prefer this sort of ground being tread in other mediums beside film. For some reason it remains very inaccessible to me.

    Saw this again at a showing at the Lightbox theatre in Toronto. There are plenty of "great" movies that are supposed to be good for you but are often a chore to watch, but this is not one of them. I'm blown away by the epic-ness of this in every sense: the music, the vision, the grandeur, this movie totally does it for me. Science fiction at its best on film, and incredibly inspiring as an example of modernism in all aspects of the set designs from almost 50 years ago.
