Synecdoche, New York

Synecdoche, New York ★★★★★

"What was once before you - an exciting, mysterious future - is now behind you. Lived; understood; disappointing. You realize you are not special. You have struggled into existence, and are now slipping silently out of it. This is everyone's experience. Every single one. The specifics hardly matter. Everyone's everyone."

Funny, profound and fundamentally human in a way so few films are. Kaufman's magnum opus, and one of my all-time faves.
