    What to make of this long, drawn-out, mysterious whilst at the same time enticing affair.

    I must say it kept me gripped to the seat simply due to it's utter unexpectedness. Every frame was a new experiment - at times whole five year patches passed by in less than one minute of the movie's actual tempo.

    It would be foolish to dampen the achievement we have here. Seymour Hoffman is clearly one of the best actors alive the way he pulled this one out.

    It does, however, drag toward the end, and proves to be a tad on the depressive side throughout.

    WHAT doth the movie fanatics feel? Idol? clocker?

    Synecdoching(bear this me this is going to be painful)

    The cast was exemplary as were the lines.
    This celluloid creation both enriched my existence and at the same time blackened my world.

    Now leave me alone I'm off for a pint with a few ship hands.

    I haven't seen it yet.
    Strangely hesitant to do so, for some reason.

    I'll put it in queue and let you know.

    I just watched it today... and i feel i dare not rate it until i watch it a second time.

    But its so ambitious...so imaginatitve...so unique...i couldn't help but be satisified by the end, even if i didnt fully grasp what was going on.

    *EDIT* - Here's how to pronounce the title if anyone wants to know...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6DHp0NYCko

    It is way too much. Too many levels.
    Confusion does not mean the work is great.
    yet does it make it more honest?

    Dissecting this monster is as complicated as life itself, hence the director wins, by looping us in the moebius strip.

    There are a lot of very interesting true points,
    yet mostly drawn out banal ones.

    The director's pitiful masturbation of his own self indulgence makes me cringe & want to turn it off,
    but then there is the catch, it is your life.


    There is no conclusion, there is no end piece, life simply develops, you reflect your past on your present, you exchange known friends with others. just living out of control in your own piss.
    The director is a sad paranoid overly concious and needs a vacation.

    I hate woody allen
