Feeling in the form of film

This is not going to be a normal review. I will not make a list. I will not make a list of all the things bad, of all the things good, and all the things mediocre in this film. I will not give it a rating other than verbal. I will only talk about it. I will talk about why I think of it so important. Why I believe it to be among the greatest films of all time. This article will be a celebration of ... read more

Unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. When I walked out of the New York theater after I saw it the first time, I didn’t know what to think. I felt something, but I didn’t know what.

I thought about how clever it was to hide an event such as the burning house right under o... read more

Charlie Kaufman is arguably one of the finest writers of coming in the 21st century. Debuting with Being John Malkovich, he's continued to impressed many people with his endless originality, amazing characters and wonderful storytelling. It's funny that many people call Eternal Sunshine or Adaptation a Kaufman movie. While he is most of the brains behind those gems, the director is still, in my op... read more

Description: Theater director Caden Cotard (Philip Seymour Hoffman) is mounting a new play. His life catering to suburban blue-hairs at the local regional theater in Schenectady, New York is looking bleak.

His therapist, Madeleine Gravis is better at plugging her best-seller than she is at counseling him. A new relationship with the alluringly candid Hazel has prematurely run aground. And a mysterious condition is systematically shutting down each of his autonomic functions, one by one. Worried about the transience of his life, he leaves his h ... (more)

“Charlie Kaufman is arguably one of the finest writers of coming in the 21st century. Debuting with Being John Malkovich, he's continued to impressed many people with his endless originality, amazing characters and wonderful storytelling. It's funny that many people call Eternal Sunshine or Adaptation a Kaufman movie. While he is most of the brains behind those gems, the director is still, in my opinion, the main man behind the picture. But still, the fact that it's called a Kaufman movie even when he's not the entire driving force behind tells you something.

Enter his 2008 directorial debut, Synecdoche, New York, showing Kaufman's full style when he's behind the camera and not standing there awkwardly on the set. It takes a while for many of the films meanings to sink in, sometim” read more
