Episode Info:

In this episode, co-hosts Simone Barros and Zach Betonte are rejoined by "Director's Club" co-host, Jim Laczkowski to discuss Charlie Kaufman's 2008 magic realist film, "Synecdoche, New York". They discuss Kaufman's use of space and architecture, the emotional effect of viewing a character undergoing a crisis of self, and question whether the film is apart of the meta-realist tradition.
