4-4-09: Synecdoche, New York

I just finished watching one of the most mind-boggling movies I've seen since Brazil. It's called Synecdoche, New York (yes, it's purposefully misspelled). It stars Phillip Seymour Hoffman as Caden Cotard, a very talented theatre director. Without giving too much away, it's about his life, and the creation of an autobiographical play, which turns into a play within a play. It's pretty intense, but beautifully done. If you're into a more cerebral film, this is a good one to look at. Very, very well done.
