    Synecdoche, New York

    ★★★★★

    Synecdoche, New York portrays life as experienced by a man in modern individualistic society. Born into mystery and finding no sense of destiny or explicitly evident meaning. The protagonist -an artist- must create his own meaning, his own statement of significance. Time races on as he struggles alone to get to grips with what is happening around him. As he tries to exert control over his circumstances he finds that he increasingly loses control and becomes ever more entrenched in…

Retarded, maybe. Braces on his legs. But he charmed the pants off Nixon and he won a ping-pong competition. That ain't retarded. He was a goddamn war hero. You know any retarded war heroes? You went FULL retard, man. Never go FULL retard. You don't buy that? Ask Sean Penn, 2001, "I Am Sam." Remember? Went FULL retard, went home empty-handed.”
