Critic Reviews of "Synecdoche, New York"Time OutMay 15, 2009
Somehow, because it resists unlocking, it feels more serious, troubling, significant. It's as funny as it's depressing. It's as brilliant as it is baffling.Chicago ReaderDecember 17, 2008
It seems more like an illustration of his script than a full-fledged movie, proving how much he needs a Spike Jonze or a Michel Gondry to realize his surrealistic conceits.Detroit NewsNovember 21, 2008
A surreal exploration of art, love and death, it has the Fellini-esque feel of some lost European cinematic masterpiece that reaches far past the normal boundaries of drama and into the very essence of existence.Miami HeraldNovember 14, 2008
The more you ruminate on Synecdoche, New York, the more resonance you find in it.Arizona RepublicNovember 13, 2008
It's a strange trip, to be sure, but a worthwhile one for those willing to take it.Chicago TribuneNovember 10, 2008
I found it bracing, and genuinely in touch with the sweet chaos and ache of life.Stop SmilingMay 16, 2016
The movie is ungainly, but to appreciate it one has to swallow the whole purple pill. As inconsistent as it is, it's still more album than mix tape.The NationMarch 06, 2015
Brilliantly imagined and perfectly performed, Synecdoche, New York is so heartbroken and strange that it can be compared only to other Charlie Kaufman films.What CultureMarch 24, 2011
An important and intriguing film that must be seen to be believed.QuickflixOctober 27, 2010
The power and tragedy of the love story, or hell, the life story of Caden Cotard will become a part of you, because it is your story, and his story is yours, and back and forth and so on and on because 'everyone's everyone'.Suite101.comOctober 20, 2010
Art is a dream through which some seek to rise above the mundane. "Synecdoche" is the nightmare of succumbing further to the mundane via art. What could be inaccessible is instead gloriously indispensable - a confounding & combative, but great, film.DCistJune 12, 2010
The line between reality and imagination, possibility and pipe-dream, become immaterial, and the film becomes the overflowing contents of a fertile mind spilled out all across the screen.
