whew. This was an incredibly complex and intricate work, lofty and grandiose and also intimate and clumsy. I feel like Charlie Kaufman is some spiritual kin to Michel Gondry and this movie is the most unadulterated that he's ever been. And like Gondry movies I feel that the amount of imagination and creativity at play is amazing if not exhausting and, like Gondry, I feel Kaufman's melancholy saturate everything. This is terrible but I feel like I'd like this movie a lot more with a happier ending. I know I know. Something about this movie keeps me on the outside though. Perhaps it's just because this is a first viewing so I was working to keep up with the plot and my bearings throughout the film, but I can't say I love this. I admire and respect it, but not love.

Whew again. Ok. I'm thinking... two more movies. I only have one left on the DVR but it's not midnight just yet and there's always Netflix streaming. This next one is a SERIOUS oversight on my part so this is a great example to finally get this movie watched. And it's short. And ordinarily I'd say I'm in for a mindfuck but after this it may seem like a walk in the park! We'll see. Luckily the last movie of the night (and fest) requires zero mental activity.
