The other day I finally got round to fulfilling my duty as a Charlie Kaufman fan and got the DVD of Synecdoche New York. Seeing it for the second time (after catching it at the at the cinema almost a year ago now) I was left feeling that as well as being ‘interesting’ it was actually quite ‘enjoyable’ too.
But I really must compliment the marketing executive who managed to convince himself that this film was “The Smash-Hit Comedy of the Year!”…? I really doubt anyone could believe that the faux-sticker on the DVD artwork would manage to increase sales, but who knows, maybe this plucky marketing executive actually believed this….? or mabye he just hadn’t seen the film…. we can only hope.
