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

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... 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

“Synedoche New York, um filme sobre a vida de um cidadão chamado Caden Cotard, no qual nos mostra de forma surrealista, sua decadência explorando temas como a morte, vida, depressão, moralidade, conformismo, vazio existencial e mais. Trata-se de um genuíno retrato da modernidade e de suas contradições, a que me refiro? bom basicamente Caden é um desses personagens tridimensionais que só podem ser explorados ao máximo com recursos metalinguísticos e simbolismos subjetivos, não é algo fácil analisar esse filme já que por conter tantos simbolismos fica difícil arrumar uma interpretação para cada um deles, pessoalmente não gosto de obras demasiado subjetivas e simbólicas que não levam a lugar nenhum e que só estão para parecer "cool" não é o caso de Synedoche New York, o” read more

"Philip K. Dick returned obsessively to the theme of simulacra in the form of artificial environments, events, artifacts, organisms, and even worlds."

" 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. Indeed, I thought it was really dark and not so much fun like the previous movies involving Kaufman. I mean, it was pretty straightforward for the first 30 minu"

WillChangeTomorrow posted a review 1 year, 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
