A Real Oddity - Synecdoche, New York review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
15/11/2009

Synecdoche, New York is a real actors film, which means for the viewer the concept is a little diluted and lost amongst all the strong performances onscreen. Coming from Charlie Kaufman I expected the weird, but the wonderful was sadly posted missing. At times you’re trying to formulate your own translation of onscreen events, as Phillip Seymour’s character plunges through a roller coaster of emotional events in his career and life. He struggles to separate reality from the epic piece of art he is constructing. So much so that boundaries become non-existent and magical moments are few and far between. I did enjoy Synecdoche, but not greatly and while I’m sure it’ll grow with repeated viewings its certainly not for everyone.

Avoid the description as its way off base and the genre as comedy is way out the ball park......the only interest is the chap playing the shadow caden is the actor who played the tooth fairy in manhunter oh incidentally a much better watch ...... all that aside seymour hoffman does pick em he is an actors actor................

Oh so boring and pretentious... - Synecdoche, New York review by PV

Spoiler Alert
24/02/2011

I found this movies to be utterly boring and pretentious. Not intelligent at all actually, though it thinks it is oh so clever and intellectual. I tend to dislike tricky pretentious American movies; Hollywood does dumb far better in my opinion; when it starts to think it's an artform and brainy, the alarm bells ring. Unlike most of the people I know, I know what Synecdoche means and can pronounce it though!

I suppose if you like tricksy pretentious metaphysical semi-fantasy, and/or if you are an AcTOR and love the theatre and pretendning to be a tree or a tampon, then this is for you. But oh, how I hated it! I liked Adaptation and Being John Malcovich more, and liked Hoffman is just about everything he's ever done more too.
