Synecdoche, New York

Synecdoche, New York ★★

This is now the third Charlie Kaufman film I’ve seen and I’m yet to fully become engrossed by his work. I thought this was very self-indulgent, couldn’t connect with any of the characters or the plot for that matter. There were some interesting ideas at the start but the film quickly became inaccessible for me and I was left mentally exhausted by the end. I did enjoy seeing Phillip Seymour Hoffman once again and I love me a bit of Michelle Williams but I think I’m done with Kaufman’s films for the time being. The way he tackles existentialism bores me.
