One Final Synecdoche, New York Poster
You've seen the trailer, now check out the poster! Well, it's not exactly as good as that trailer, but this final poster for Synecdoche, New York looks good enough to be featured here today. In addition to the slick design and lack of any actual faces, the poster boasts probably one of the longest quotes I've ever seen. Obviously this is such a complex film and such a hard one to sell, that they had to put a quote on there that was a paragraph long. I've seen the film and it s indeed a mindfuck, to say the very least, but it's still an impressive achievement. Anyway - give this one more shot before you start buying your tickets to see it in theaters in a few weeks. Special thanks to Cinematical for debuting this poster.
For those wondering exactly what the quote says, here it is. "No film with an ambition this large and an achievement this impressive, can be anything but exhilarating. Thanks in large part to a superb cast, led by Philip Seymour Hoffman's unsparing, sympathetic, towering performance. The movie should delight viewers who both work the movie out and surrender to its spell." Does that even make sense?
Synecdoche, New York is both written and directed by Charlie Kaufman, who is making his directorial debut after writing such screenplays as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Adaptation, and Being John Malkovich. This film first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and went on to play at the Toronto Film Festival as well. Sony Pictures Classics is distributing the film and will be premiering it in limited theaters starting on October 24th this fall.
