Cαrlítо’s review published on Letterboxd:
'Synecdoche, New York' is staggeringly complex, and at times feels artistic to the point of pretension. 'Philip Seymour Hoffman' gives an excellent performance as do the many other actors that accompany him. the make-up looks great, the set design is fantastic and the film is shot great and packs countless details and little touches in every frame and line of dialogue. the script is well written, there are many memorable quotes.
at a surface level, this movie is already fantastic. the acting, writing, story, editing, sound track, production design. this movie is an absolute emotional rollercoaster. the deep messages of this movie really hit me hard and moved me in ways i didn't expect. easily one of the Best (and most underrated) films of all time. it greatly upsets me to see this movie constantly going under the radar in discussion of amazing films. the settings are bizarre yet beautifully bleak. and this film explores life and death, and that sometimes life can be so mundane time can pass without anyone noticing or does it matter at all?.
