Synecdoche, New York

Synecdoche, New York ★★★★★

This one blew me away. I don't even really want to talk about it right now as there is simply too much to grasp in just one viewing.

For now, suffice it to say that I loved the script, in terms of structure as well as dialogue. There were just so many beautiful moments that either made me laugh or brought tears to my eyes - or both at the same time. It has a lot to say about how we (or many of us) live our lives, and after the film ended, a feeling of having been touched by something meaningful lingered. There is also a good deal of crazy, Kafka-esque stuff going on, but you knew what you were in for when you read Charlie Kaufman on the poster.

This movie kept me up at night (is a rare event).
