Synecdoche, New York

Experimental deprimant, dar excelent, despre singuratate, esec si moarte. O "comedie" trista care te bantuie mult timp, dar te face sa vrei sa-l revezi, caci e plin de detalii care par ca-ti scapa la prima interactiune. Un fel de Orele , dar mai underground si cu multa meta-arta.

Regizat si scris de Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich). Cu Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener, Michelle Williams.

Bad Time Management

It all happened this morning…The door bell rings twice, hysterically. I wake-up annoyed and I look at my watch - it’s 6.30 a.m. I open the door and, instead of a real and, let me say, endangered person, I find a sealed envelope with a funny message: This is the first day of the rest of your life. I open the envelope in haste, even if my mind is crowded with thousands of somber possibilities…

Inside, there’s a DVD with a dark red cover. I put it into my computer, even more intrigued than you can imagine. Surprisingly, my laptop is safe; it seems that my antivirus has detected nothing but a 9 minutes .avi film. I play it and watch the images in a complete state of shock. It contains the most significant moments I have lived during the last month. 9 minutes out of one whole month! Only 9... should I be happy or gloomy?

Am I captive in an episode of the most subtle Big Brother ever made? The cameras were everywhere, even in my bathroom! Who should I sue?

The last frame cast some dim light over the whole occurrence. It said: Go out and buy Time Management. The best book of your life. It will help you find a brand new you.

Is this marketing…? Wouldn’t this be amazing? I’ll sue the bastards, this world is not all about publicity!
