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

I thought about how clever it was to hide an event such as the burning house right under o... 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 wife has left him to pursue her painting in Berlin, taking their young daughter Olive with her. 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)

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
