    Inherent Vice

    ★★★★½

    Wow... There's just something so utterly polarizing about Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice. Seeing this for a second time was almost like experiencing it for the first. There's so much for you as an audience member to pick up on.

But Synecdoche might just be, not only my favorite Kaufman-related film, but my favorite film in general. Where do I even begin? This might just be the most depressing film I’ve ever seen. Death, which could be…
