Watch: Interpreting Synecdoche, New York With Amy Nicholson (Part 2)

In a video essay published last week, Amy Nicholson (from LA Weekly) and I dove into some of the intricacies of Charlie Kaufman's Synecdoche, New York. This week in Part 2, we examine the role of Sammy Barnathan, ponder why Caden wears a wig later on in the film, reflect on the role of Madeline Gravis, and try to figure out why everyone is everyone, as the world outside of the play collapses.
