Things that Make Me Go Ooooooh, part 67

Saturday, November 08, 2008

As you might be suspecting, balancing ye olde blog and the new day job is tough. Sure, there are time constraints, but mostly, all my I-have-to-have-this! thoughts that would normally go here are now being directed towards the job. Take, for example, these Charley Harper books that just debuted at Old Navy last weekend (and, um, popped up in yesterday's Post Express Styles section). I fell in love with Charley Harper when his retrospective book was released last year – but, at $200 (or a still-high $126 on Amazon), the price was a little hard to swallow. Now, you can buy a limited edition set of Harper-illustrated kids' books and games at Old Navy for pennies. Well, dollars. (I think all the products are $15 or less.) I'm bummed because my local Old Navy didn't have them in stock when I showed up the other day, but I'm hoping to get my hands on some, stat. Too. Cute!

Merely recognizing the movie's ambition - the fact that Kaufman, in his first film as a director, is trying to be wholesale Ingmar Bergman - is a pleasure in itself. Sometimes the movie is only funny, and that's fine. At its best, "Synecdoche, wholesale electronics New York" has the power to make you sit back in your seat and think, whoa. This guy really is brilliant. Yet there's a second true thing about "Synecdoche, The movie fails as a piece of entertainment. It fails by even the most indulgent standard. After a promising 45 minutes to an hour, the story derails. Some glimmers of brilliance remain, and wholesale digital cameras they're worth savoring, but mostly Kaufman just spins his wheels in the second half. He repeats the same kinds of scenes over and over until watching thfilm becomes in itself an existential wholesale mp3 trial. I don't know if this is praise or criticism, but I've had entire months go by faster than the second hour of this movie.
The cast is game and inventive, with Samantha Morton as our hero's devoted assistant and Emily Watson as the very different woman cast mp5 player to play her in the stage piece. The underused and always interesting Tom Noonan has a key role, as a bizarre stalker who gets a part in the play, and Hoffman, of course, is ideally cast as a sad sack, all-too-intelligent, striving, unhappy artist.

Those books look adorable! I love picture books. However, that is not my reason for commenting! Rather, I'm narcissistic enough to think that if I tell you that I wore a bow blouse today and I'm telling you that because I know you love them, you won't think I'm a fool. :-) And even though this post is muddled and long, I'm not a spammer!
