Was auch immer im amerikanischen Film gerade läuft, es gibt noch eine zweite Richtung: Die des Charlie Kaufman. Obwohl er bis dahin mehr Drehbücher verfasst hat als Filme inszeniert, muss er als Autor gelten. Charlie Kaufmans Werk ist so eigen, so originell - seine Figuren sprechen ihre ganz eigene erhabene Sprache. Seine Komödien leben von ihrem bissigen Humor, abgedrehten Slapstick und ihrem selbstbewussten Erzähl-Stil. Poesie und Träume, all das findet Einzug in die Bilderwelt des Charlie Kaufman.

What a better way to end the year is to talk about "Anomalisa", one of my most anticipated movie of 2015. Charlie Kaufman is an inspiration, as a writer and now a director. Synecdoche, New York is one of my all time favorite movies, and yeah it's for everyone, but I personally loved it as with every repeat viewings of the movie made my love each more.
