Endless Eye's rating of the film Synecdoche, New York

An astonishingly brave and bold film that functions on multiple levels, all at once absurd, hilarious, and tragic, quite like life. To me, this is a film about breaking apart the boundaries of identity, learning to transcend your suffering by seeing yourself in others, sharing pain. Our transience is real but something persists, and perhaps we are more closely related to that hidden wellspring which keeps on going.
