Synecdoche, New York

Synecdoche, New York ★★★★★

a film that once struck me as oppressively pretentious, i now find utterly brilliant.

it’s so ambitious and daunting, i can’t even pretend that my monkey brain is advanced enough to fathom everything i saw. but what i am certain about is how much it emotionally resonates with me ;-;

for some odd reason i have never ever been able to cry during films, but i know that if i could, i would’ve been drowning in my own tears by the time the credits started rolling.

and though i’m content about my new-found love for this film, i don’t think i’ll watch it again anytime soon. two viewings of it have been enough to provide me with enough existential dread to last a lifetime!
