Kaufman on Kaufman (on Kaufman)

synecdoche_new_york

For those of you living under a tortoise shell or in a fallout bunker, Charlie Kaufman has a new movie out which he has written and directed.

Synecdoche, New York is, in short, brilliant.

If you haven’t yet seen it, step away from your computer and go check it out.  It’s far better than Adaptation, a sight better than Being John Malkovich, and in my humble opinion equally as good (if not better than) the much loved Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

If you happen to work in theatre – like I do – then it is compulsory viewing.

And check out this interview with Kaufman: he has some very interesting things to say about writing for stage and screen.
