Out of my heads...

Charlie Kaufman
is one of the most interesting film directors working today (entertainingly, pun intended, Time magazine recently voted him onto their Time 100 list of most important people in the whole world.) Synecdoche, New York, is his most recent production - a phantasmagorical conceit about death and the elaborate preparations we make for it. As with his previous outings, the film employs a number of unusual cinematic devices; themselves utilised in a highly individual way, to create works of great originality - Kaufman's films always raise important questions about life and its relationship to art. Enough, already - go see/buy the picture. Synecdoche, New York - buy me now.
