Daan De Clerck’s review published on Letterboxd:
What an incredibly impressive production was this?! First of all, you have to come up with a story, then you have to write it down in a workable and realistic script and then you have to show it off. Charlie Kaufman really did that! Was he depressed himself while writing and making this picture? Cause this is just so well made and it all seems so realistic.
I was shocked after watching this picture. This was just complete madness. And the symbolism that hangs over it like a shadow is indescribable. Psychology, love, ambition, loneliness and hopelessness go hand in hand. Life can be so frightening and confusing, as this film proves.
Philip Seymour Hoffman was a real artist. A man who loved and lived his profession. What a great drama film.
