Felt a little bit like Fellini's 8 1/2. Almost like its dark other half. 8 1/2 felt so uplifting. Even though he was struggling to create his masterpiece, he kept finding joys in his memories and fantasies. Where as Caden seems to keep fantasizing about the horrors and sad times. Really enjoyed both, but felt very differently after watching both.

I don't understand a huge amount of it, but that doesn't stop me from loving it. Definitely starting to develop a taste for this kind of thing. Extraordinarily moving, I know it's going to stay with me for a while.

I'm not sure what I just watched. I do know I want to watch it again though.

I really enjoyed this film... I didn't really "get" much of it, but it's just so good to watch... Philip Seymour Hoffman is essentially God at this point...

This is a brilliant movie. This is also a SURREALIST movie. If you want a perfect plot and you want to be able to successfully analyse every part of a film as you watch it, then you won't enjoy this.

Fantastic, it's an incredible achievement, though I can equally see that it could be seen as hopelessly pretentious and unappealing.

Yes, the main character of this film is pretentious, but don't be confused into thinking that that means the film itself is therefore pretentious. I think Synecdoche is more of a masterpiece than any one of Kaufmann's scripts that were directed by someone else (keep in mind, I love all of those films, as well).

I saw this film for the first time nearly 5 days ago and since then it's been on my mind throughout, it's such a intricate yet delicate piece, I'm such a sucker for deep ending monologues and fascinating characters. Hoffman really did amazing in this

Charlie Kaufman's directorial debut, Synecdoche New York... So that's what undiluted Kaufman is like, huh? It is a tour de force. I was completely bowled over by it. After I was done, I walked around the apartment stunned, and I wasn't sure I wanted to watch the DVD extras in case it answered questions I wanted to think of them for myself. My one word review is: Profound. This isn't an easy film to watch - it involves a lot of work - but I heartily recommend it.

I understand that this movie wanted to avoid happy moments at all costs, but geez, that was unrelenting.

Jaw-droppingly incredible. A standard most films, especially screenplays, will never achieve.
