Synecdoche, New York

Synecdoche, New York ★★★★★

This movie emotionally devastated me. Charlie Kaufman is one of the few filmmakers who continuously challenges me. He makes me face my own problems and self reflect on my own life. This movie easily could’ve become the most pretentious film I’ve ever seen, yet he finds a way to make it so honest that you really begin to reflect on yourself. It’s scary yet rewarding. I don’t want to say too much about the movie in case you haven’t seen it but I was continuously moved throughout. I could probably make a 3 hour long video just dissecting it. All the acting is great but Philip Seymour Hoffman is so good here I don’t even know how to explain it. This is easily one of my favourites of all time. I saw it three days ago and I can’t stop thinking about it.
