Synecdoche, New York was interesting and a bit challenging. Kaufman’s stab at directing confirms that his talents aren’t only in writing. He weaves a surreal experience where one can’t decide when they’re watching a play or watching reality, while it’s clear that the characters suffer from the same struggle. The point or message of the film is pretty straightforward, I think, but the presentation and themes along the way are challenging in both material and presentation. Don’t watch it unless you’re ready to pay attention and lose yourself in it. 9/10 for now; we’ll see if/when I get around to a rewatch.
