Dir. Charlie Kaufman. 2008, 124 mins. 35mm. With Philip Seymour Hoffman, Samantha Morton, Michelle Williams. Obsessed with his mortality, and with his personal life falling apart, playwright Caden Cotard builds a massive set reconstruction of New York City for an upstate production. In this dazzlingly ambitious directorial debut of screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (成为约翰·马尔科维奇, Adaptation， 和 一尘不染的永恒阳光), the lines between reality and art dissolve. Hoffman anchors the film’s mind-bending conceits with a profound and moving portrait of an artist driven by a quest for deeper truth. Charlie Kaufman will introduce the screening and participate in a discussion afterwards.
