I saw this interesting film last night. Totally absorbing and thought-provoking but definitely not everyone's cup of tea. Probably the second weirdest film I've ever seen, with the first being Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie. It's Charlie Kaufman's directorial debut, so those of you familiar with Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind will know in what vein this film will be in, though it is far more grandiose in terms of production. Philip Seymour Hoffman did a hell of a job as Caden Cotard (surname being of significance) as did the rest of the cast. The plot is still murky for me, but I can tell you that in all of the seemingly random scenes there is a vision here. You may embrace it or be disgusted by it; I think I am in the former camp. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synecdoche,_New_York Thoughts?
