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. My mind was focused on the burning house and the series of illnesses that Caden Cotard (Philip Seymour Hoffman) suffers. I thought about how clever it was to hide an event such as the burning house right under o... read more

" Notes: Oh dear, this movie was a tough watch… I mean, since I was familiar with Charlie Kaufman’s work, I knew beforehand that it would be quite surrealist but still. I guess it might have to do with the fact I’m going through a difficult time in my life right now so I wasn’t in the best mood to watch such a depressive picture.

WillChangeTomorrow posted a review 6 months ago

¿Hasta que punto puede llegar nuestro desarraigo?



Synedoche New York, es un espejo de la vida moderna, es una cruel mirada a este mundo Nihilista donde hemos caido, donde ya todo sentido y enfoque se ha perido, el tiempo es solo algo que se consume rapidamente mientras lo vivivimos mientras respiramos, mientras hacemos nuestras aspiraciones, al punto de descuidar otros aspectos de nuestra vida. Cada quien es una pequeña persona buscando significado en un mundo de edificios grises, y morbido. Donde la prostitucion es arte, donde una artista descuida a su hija de los desesos morbidos de su amante, donde un hombre descuida a seres queridos y a si mismo por dejar su huella en este mundo.

Caden es mucho, y es poco a la vez, es decir una persona. Por eso no importa si era Trans, o si simplemente pasaba todo en su mente, al” read more

Mirada metafísica al hombre moderno

“Una experiencia única, eso puede decirse de muchas películas surrealistas o de las popularmente consideradas "mindfucks". Pero entre otras películas que también juegan con la continuidad del tiempo o distintas formas de percepción como Mulholland Drive, Lost Highway, Memento, Teorema, Swiss Army Man, Antichrist, 8 ½ o The Tenant; Synecdoche, New York sobresale al aprovechar estos recursos al máximo para explorar una historia muy humana, sin caer en ser ambigua, confusa o shockeante sólo por serlo.

El protagonista es Caden Cotard, un hombre condenado por una enfermedad y que quiere dejar como legado una obra en la que comprenda la vida misma. Esta insaciable ambición funciona como catalizador temático de la película: toma lugar la historia de un hombre que lucha contra ” read more
