"SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK is beautiful....It makes an irrefutable case for the universality of the individual human experience."Los Angeles Times "SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK is as much a cry from the heart as it is an assertion of creative consciousness. It's extravagantly conceptual but also tethered to the here and now..."New York Times "[F]or viewers up for the challenge, it may be the film most likely to stick with you."Premiere "This is a film with the richness of great fiction....The subject of SYNECDOCHE is nothing less than human life and how it works."Chicago Sun-Times "Kaufman provides juicy roles for his actors, including Michelle Williams, Dianne Wiest and Tom Noonan, who get caught in the time war as art imitates something resembling existence."Rolling Stone "[W]hile deadly serious in theme, the film is frantically playful in its construction, introducing a new surrealist gimmick in nearly every other scene..."Film Comment 4 stars out of 5 -- "Kaufman's meta-cinema must be applauded....He's presented here something intricate enough to put furrows in the brows of Borges or Baudrillard."Uncut54.19718

"...Few scripts toss more challenging balls in the air, and Jonze juggles them all with artful, light-stepping ease. It's magic..." Rolling Stone "...Mr. Cage and Mr. Jonze share a casual, daredevil sensibility, and the two of them -- or should I say the three of them? -- pull off one of the most amazing technical stunts in recent film history..."

4 stars out of 5 -- "[The film] exhibits a self-assurance and a brilliance and should not be missed. Although filled with amusing comedy and irony, the film raises disturbing questions about the 'soul' of modern society and our place in it."Box Office "Barthes plays this fantasy perfectly straight, with Strathairn utterly matter-of-fact about the process..."A.V. Club "[The] quaintly goofy premise makes for pointedly neurotic SLEEPER-ish fun, not to mention nifty digs at our culture of self-invention."Los Angeles Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "There are echoes of the memory-clearing THE ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND....Compelling in the way of an indelible, dreamy short story."USA Today "Mr. Giamatti is the best reason to see the film...his on-screen version of himself goes from soulful to soulless -- and then soulful again -- with the greatest of unease, and he's entertaining in either phase."Wall Street Journal "[A]n ambitious, elegantly shot, tonally cool first feature written and directed by Sophie Barthes that shows hints of Stanley Kubrick and Charlie Kaufman both..."New York Times "See it for Giamatti's typically adroit performance..."Movieline "[A] darkly funny, twisty-cool existential tragi-comedy, loaded with smart notions and filmed like a surrealist dream..." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly "The film is superbly shot by Andrij Parekh and edited by Andrew Mondshein, but it's the hilarious and heartbreaking Giamatti who provides it with, well, soul."Rolling Stone 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Barthes takes her notion and runs with it, and Giamatti and Strathairn follow fearlessly. The movie is rather evocative about the way we govern ourselves from the inside out."Chicago Sun-Times0.5493819

Rolling Stone "[A] masterpiece....Kate Winslet is truly remarkable....The supporting cast is brilliant..." Premiere "[Gondry] can define contradictory emotions with extraordinary clarity and alacrity.

Entertainment Weekly "ETERNAL SUNSHINE has an emotional center, and that's what makes it work."Chicago Sun-Times "Going to the movies would be an eternally wondrous experience if more movies were as smart, ambitious, offbeat and emotionally rich as ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND."USA Today "There's a tenderness and a wistfulness to Kaufman's writing and Carrey's performance..." Box Office "It's another screenwriting triumph for the prodigiously gifted Charlie Kaufman, directed with visionary panache by Michel Gondry."

"The whole film is cracked, but in a stylish, downtown way..." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] dark-hued road movie that plays like Jarmusch crossed with Bergman."Total Film "[The film] has an offbeat, absurdist charm that turns a potentially creepy conceit into an odd, touching adventure."New York Times 3 stars out of 5 -- "[The characters'] shared recognition of the comic melancholy rings true. As entertaining as it is moving, and occasionally hilarious..."Empire "[T]he film is tinged with a kind of thoughtful melancholy....Small outbreaks of quirky magic lighten the mood in Charlie Kaufman fashion."Sight and Sound 4 stars out of 5 -- "It's a well-written road movie....This deadpan comedy-romance is big on quirkiness and has a big heart."Ultimate DVD0.3933433

3 stars out of 5 -- "JCVD is a much better and more thoughtful film than anything he has been in before. Director Mabrouk El Mechri reveals the muscular superstar in a way we've never seen him" achingly human, self-deprecating, funny and even a bit weak."USA Today "[JCVD] aims for a knowing, cerebral mood, allowing its hero moments of moody contemplation, during which he reflects on the strange, lonely life of middle-aged, globally known martial artist."New York Times "Sympathetic director Mabrouk El Mechri creates a marvelous netherworld of ambiguous scenarios, and Van Damme rises to the challenge -- of acting -- like the real pro he is." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly "[Jean-Claude Van Damme] is reborn, playing a role he has never previously essayed: himself, or at least a fictional facsimile thereof."Los Angeles Times "[T]hrough his unrelenting dissection of Van Damme, El Mechri adds real poetry and feeling to the mix."Film Comment 3 stars out of 5 -- "Taking true embarrassing events from Van Damme's life and putting a silly spin on them makes for a great ride of action, comedy and mistaken identity."Box Office 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] treatise on celebrity, a confessional for its star. It aims playful cuffs at his waning physicality, his dwindling career, and one remarkable seven-minute take even sees Van Damme address the camera to direct roundhouse kicks at his chequered past."Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n immensely watchable postmodern thriller....A strangely compelling collision of BEING JOHN MALKOVICH and DOG DAY AFTERNOON."Empire0.1342112
