This week is our last flashback of 2018, to 2008’s Synecdoche, New York. This was my (Zac) pick and I think I’m the only one he likes this movie! We have some good conversation about the ups and downs of the rest of the crew’s first experience watching this mind bender, but I mostly just laugh at their confusion and pontificate over how amazing this film is. Charlie Kaufman! So head of to Synecdoche and enjoy one of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s best performances, or head the advice of everyone else and don’t.
Download. Listen. Enjoy!
