As his life crumbles around him, theatre director Caden Cotard (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) mounts a new play, a work of 'brutal honesty' reflecting on the transient nature of his life. Naturally, the production (and in turn the film itself) descends into a surreal nightmare where fiction and reality blur. Kaufman's directorial debut is an incredible, ambitious must-see.
Dir. Charlie Kaufman, USA, 2008, 2h 4m
