    Synecdoche, New York

    ★★★★½

    Worlds within worlds, stories within stories. A tale— if you can call it that— of life and death, love and fear, ambition and failure. Disjointed and in-cohesive, chaotic yet profound. About as non-traditional as it gets in this medium; yet the dark recesses of Kaufmann's ever-fascinating mind seem to effortlessly string together a plethora of thoughts, concepts and ideas into an intricately woven, precisely crafted piece of art like no other.

    Cotard proved to be the perfect vessel to channel…

    Luckily Ari Aster, Toni Collette and the rest of the crew did not drop the ball on this one.

    Hoop-Tober 4.0: #2/33

    Having already seen "Raw" recently, and the Cannibal Holocaust/Cannibal Ferox entries for the "People-eating-People" section are, you know, those movies; my hopes on having a refreshing cannibal-related entry for this year's Hoop-Tober were resting on the shoulders of "We Are What We Are". Unfortunately that's not quite what I ended up getting from it.

    While the performances are serviceable, with Julia Garner being the stand-out and Jim Micke's direction manages to instil a matter-of-factly, oppressive atmosphere surrounding…
