Last night I went to see the new film from Charles Kaufman, Synecdoche, New York. He is the writer of Being John Malkovich and Adaptation, and this film was his directorial debut. I went with my Indie Film movie group, which usually goes out for a drink and movie talk after the film. We don’t usually spend much time talking about the movie we just saw, but last night we did. The movie really got us thinking and talking about life, death, existence, dreams, control and many other things.
