I once did a course on the art of movie making. It was nothing too technical, just the basics. Now, time and space are one of the most basic elements of a screenplay. I still remember the words of the professor, “It is a dangerous thing, to play with time and space while writing a screenplay for a movie.” And I totally agree with him. But who could have stopped Kaufman. After all he is ‘the’ Charlie Kaufman, a person who has mastered the art of playing with time and space.
The plot of the movie is really good (try guessing it from the name of the movie itself). It is original, inventive and creative. I haven’t seen anything like it before. Spike Jones(director) has done a really wonderful job. Directing a screenplay like this isn’t easy and I don’t think there are a lot of directors who can take a Charlie Kaufman screenplay and produce a movie like this.
There is no movie like this out there, absolutely intriguing. A must watch for everyone.
