Not a new trailer, as far as I know. Not an old trailer, either – as far as I know. Really, I know nothing. All I know is: this is a trailer, and it’s the trailer for “Synecdoche, NY.” Fuck it, go watch the thing. Or don’t – you’ve already seen it, as far as I know.
(The preceding paragraph was brought to you by Charlie Kaufman’s brain.)
My reaction as a barely-closeted Kaufman fanboy is that this looks really, really good. The early reviews are fascinatingly mixed – check out these two side-by-side blurbs from Rotten Tomatoes:
“No matter how bad you think the worst movie ever made ever was, you have not seen Synecdoche, New York. It sinks to the ultimate bottom of the landfill, and the smell threatens to linger from here to infinity.” – Rex Reed, NY Observer
“It’s the best American film of 2008 to date, and probably of 2007 and 2006 as well.” – Alonso Duralde, MSNBC
There’s your poster quotes, right there!
