Synecdoche, New York

Synecdoche, New York ★★★★★

Charlie Kaufman's directorial debut is a beautiful mixture of Lynch and Kubrick, straining the mind and testing the patience of the viewer. But if the viewer is willing to put all frustrations aside, he/she can experience a magnificent adventure centered on a man's journey to create a perfect play, expanding on the theme of the tortured artist in a way 8½ could've only dreamed of.
