I’ve been trying to find the trailer for Charlie Kaufman’s Synecdoche, New York for quite awhile. Now, with about a month until its release, it’s finally hit the net:
Just the trailer itself looks fantastic. Sure, Kaufman does great work with Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry, but with his sharp, witty, and all-around-anomalous screenplay writing, I’m excited to see his directing ability. From the trailer, it touches on two themes about emo I always gravitate towards: the absurd and the normal. Sometimes they go great hand in hand in emo – sometimes they don’t. Sometimes they go great hand in hand in film, especially when Kaufman is somewhere in the picture. I can’t wait to see how this one works out.
