I watched Synecdoche, New York (2008) for my birthday with the hope of stirring raw emotions and medusa-like fantasy.
And it did.
Kaufman's frames are vested with solidity and dynamism. Non-diegetic inserts were mostly of questionable origin but yielded multi-layered meanings. His sense of space is flexural, it can be distorted without affecting the narrative layer. His frames, though mostly not staged in depth, is characteristic of a blossoming auteur aesthetic mindset influenced by certain directorial giants (i beg you know them) who have worked with Kaufman. His images are associative (i.e. burning house, micro-paintings of Adelle, the whole theater set of New York).
He reminds me of Kafka!
Thank you so much to everyone who greeted me yesterday! Thanks Thanks Thanks!
