  2. Time is passing by quickly, you might not live to see the full analysis before you die.

  3. It's not only in opening scene, but in many others as well. Though, in the rest of the movie the passage of time revealed more through the main character's vision. He often confuses time periods or how many years have passed since something happened.

    I'm not the only one who thought this movie had a deeply, deeply positive message, right? That we are all the same? That death connects us, that ultimately we are all the same person? It outright says it near the end but people keep saying this movie is scary or too introspective. I took an amazing message from this movie as a stand for mankind to unite.

  5. This movie had both deeply depressing and deeply positive messages. And, I think, which one you get from it, tells what kind of person you are. In this context "Song For Caden" is fairly important.

  6. Thank you. Seeing a new upload made my day! I appreciate the integrity of your work, you never put out bullshit for the sake of an upload and that makes you like the jesus Christ of Internet video creationists. I'm always passing the time watching your videos but never ever wasting it. :D

  7. I've been meaning to watch this for a long time. It has been recommended by one of my professors in particular. But despite living within the capital district, I never had any interest. Honestly, I watched it just so I could watch this review to its fullest and I'm glad I did.

    This might be the best movie I have ever seen, and I have never said that before in my life. I hate to put it so high on a pedestal because it is essentially the pretentious cliche of being about life, death, love, and everything in between... without being a pretentious cliche. I'm still taken back by it.

    As for your analysis, I like what you have to say and I'm waiting for more. I understand how long stuff like this takes; just know that I'm waiting with anticipation.

  8. thank you so much for doing an analsis of this film. i've been trying to have an educated discussion with someone about this film for years but i can never find anyone, even film buffs, who have seen it. this movie left me depressed as all fuck but man it was quite an experience. i'm also glad to see you branch out from traditional yms reviews and do something a little more thoughtful.

  9. What's your favorite movie if Synedoche is #2? New to your site, wasn't able to quickly discern this. You might also enjoy Stardust Memories by Woody Allen if you haven't seen it. Not as heavy but also a dream reality with a main character struggling with his existence.

  10. You could do an entire analyzed video on Charlie Kaufman career and filmography.
