Parallel Synchronized Randomness


Spike Jonze already did it

Saw The Science of Sleep in the city yesterday.

Given that up until now, Michel Gondry has only directed films that were either A. written by Charlie Kaufman or B. documentaries, I was wary of him directing his own screenplay, and my wariness was confirmed.

Gondry's latest is visually interesting and frequently amusing but doesn't tell much of a story.

Moreover, what story exists is essentially a variation on Degrassi's "Craig is bi-polar" arc, which was similarly unpleasant to watch.

That said, I'm eagerly anticipating Gondry's next writing/directing project.

Related: Charlie Kaufman will direct his next screenplay, Synecdoche, New York.


On our way to the theatre, a woman walked past Josh and I wearing a t-shirt that read: "Department of Erections."

I'd like to believe it was a gift.
