    Synecdoche, New York

    brutal reflection of the artist trying to make something of their pain. while i feel like this concept might be reflected upon better elsewhere (watch bojack horseman's good damage), or at least in an easier way to watch, the self-indulgence here really only adds to the message of the film, much like with adaptation. while this movie doesn't contain itself it does build layers upon layers of abstraction over the artist's life in a manner which feels incoherent and yet…

    the first half is a bit disjointed, some great moments, particularly everything between the haywoods, but also plays a bit loose with the core idea of humans making a spectacle out of their environment. jupe does feel a bit more like part of peele's thesis statement compared to his own developed character. the way his trauma unfolds is interesting but not as fleshed out as i felt it could be, leaving a bit of dissatisfaction.

    the final event of the movie though is perfect. so fun to watch.
