Do I have an original thought in my head? My bald head. Maybe if I were happier my hair wouldn't be falling out. Life is short. I need to make the most of it. Today is the first day of the rest of my life. I'm a walking cliché. I really need to go to the doctor and have my leg checked. There's something wrong. A bump. The dentist called again. I'm way overdue. If I stop putting things off I would be happier. All I do is sit on my fat ass. If my ass wasn't fat I would be happier. I wouldn't have to wear these shirts with the tails out all the time. Like that's fooling anyone. Fat ass. I should start jogging again. Five miles a day. Really do it this time. Maybe rock climbing. I need to turn my life around. What do I need to do? I need to fall in love. I need to have a girlfriend. I need to read more and prove myself. What if I learned Russian or something, or took up an instrument. I could speak Chinese. I'd be the screenwriter who speaks Chinese and plays the oboe. That would be cool. I should get my hair cut short. Stop trying to fool myself and everyone else into thinking I have a full head of hair. How pathetic is that. Just be real. Confident. Isn't that what women are attracted to? Men don't have to be attractive. But that's not true. Especially these days. Almost as much pressure on men as there is on women these days. Why should I be made to feel I have to apologize for my existence? Maybe it's my brain chemistry. Maybe that's what's wrong with me. Bad chemistry. All my problems and anxiety can be reduced to a chemical imbalance or some kind of misfiring synapses. I need to get help for that. But I'll still be ugly though. Nothing's going to change that.
La genialidad de Laroche:
Who's gonna play me? I think I should play me.
I'm probably the smartest person I know.
John Laroche: Then one morning, I woke up and said, "Fuck fish." I renounce fish, I will never set foot in that ocean again. And there hasn't been a time where I have stuck so much as a toe back in that ocean.
Susan Orlean: But why?
John Laroche: Done with fish.
Point is, what's so wonderful is that every one of these flowers has a specific relationship with the insect that pollinates it. There's a certain orchid look exactly like a certain insect so the insect is drawn to this flower, its double, its soul mate, and wants nothing more than to make love to it. And after the insect flies off, spots another soul-mate flower and makes love to it, thus pollinating it. And neither the flower nor the insect will ever understand the significance of their lovemaking. I mean, how could they know that because of their little dance the world lives? But it does. By simply doing what they're designed to do, something large and magnificent happens. In this sense they show us how to live - how the only barometer you have is your heart. How, when you spot your flower, you can't let anything get in your way.
El guión es buenísimo, te puede enseñar tantas cosas. Merece la pena verla. Siempre recordaré lo que dijó Susan Orlean:
There are too many ideas and too many people. And too many directions to go. I was starting to believe that the reason it matters to care passionately about something, is that is whittles the world down to a more manageable size.
"Hay tantas ideas y personas, direcciones...empezaba a entender que la razón por la cual las personas querían algo apasionadamente era que encogía el mundo a un tamaño más manejable"

Ayer la ví por segundo vez y es una genial mezcla de comedia y drama, ficción y realidad, muy buenos todos los personajes y la manera de narrar la trama
Charlie Kaufman me parece un guionista muy original y aquí sin duda se luce
Para mí lo mejor es el final
Destripamiento: (Pulse y arrastre sobre el recuadro si desea leer el texto.)
como finalmente Kaufman sonsigue encontrar esperanza y sentido en su vida
Otra historia de dobles,
muy original, sin duda, con la marca del guionista Ch Kaufman
por un lado el protagonista se des/dobla entre un guionista parecido a Ch K y su hermano,
ambos interpretados por Nicolas Cage
por otro, juega con el doble sentido de la palabra "adaptación", como adaptación literaria -Ch K adapta un ensayo para escribir este guión, un libro sobre orquídeas-, pero también como el concepto de adaptación en la biología darwinista
por supuesto, el film es una sátira sobre el (mal) cine norteamericano de las úlitmas décadas
por cierto, desde que estrenó "Synecdoque", Ch K parece haber entrado definitivamente en crisis, como sus personajes. Espero que no, es la gran esperanza blanca para toda una generación, quizás la única
Historia de perdedores solitarios y fracasados más raros que un perro verde que pretende ser una comedia- comedia negra con aires filosóficos y conforme va avanzando se vuelve aún más surrealista convirtiéndose en una basura.
Parece que la hayan dirigido los hermanos Coen esos. Pues eso, una subnormalidad. 2.
