Through puppets, many Noonans
It’s a Kaufman film.
The dream sequence is the highlight of this one. Synecdoche, New York, was better.

a frozen body
kept alive through memory
a rebound marriage
This movie is a gem. The scene in the attic and the final scene are unforgettable.
Therese and Carol
Loving through glances, windows
Heatrbreaks and triumphs.
Best film of the year. Brooklyn is a close second, but this one has the benefit of two extraordinary performances. The final scene here is one of the most moving I’ve ever experienced in cinema.
