Synecdoche, New York

Synecdoche, New York

I really like Charlie Kaufman - 'Being John Malkovich' is great; I love 'Adaptation.'; 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' is one of my favourite movies of all time - but this is self-indulgent, pretentious, inconsequential trash. It's competently made and well-acted (with a cast that boasts Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Michelle Williams, of course, it is) but it's just so pointless. It is not even 2 hours long but it feels like 10 hours, and there's no point to any of it. It is an attractive film but one that is ultimately a massive waste of time.
