Brilliant. Everything about it was perfect. It is a masterpiece. The ending, while it did feel weird, was really quite clever, I think..
A lot of people didn't seem to "get" a lot of it, and I think a lot of people, not wanting to feel dumb, pretend that they "got" it... But from all the interviews I've read, Kaufman himself didn't quite "get" why he did a lot of it. He is at the point in his life where he is doing art for the sake of art, and doesn't exactly understand why he's doing the things he does, which is when many artists will produce their most amazing, insightful work. There's so much to take away from this film... Look at the reviews. None of them really say the same thing, I think, and that kind of says a lot to me.
As always, I loved Jon Brion's score.
A lot of the movie, I felt was very Vonnegut-esque! That is, in terms of some of the plot.. But also, just some of the themes. For example, in Sirens of Titan, Vonnegut says: "A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved," and I felt that REALLY applied to this movie..
Every actor was amazing, too.
Their were so many parts to it, and the beginning felt a bit rushed with so many rapid scene changes, and I can imagine this was only to cut the movie down since its running length was already quite long.
It was epic, and definitely Charlie Kaufman's masterpiece...
