Synecdoche, New York DVD release (trailer)

Synecdoche, New York was PopMatters' #3 film of 2008. Erik Hinton called it "brilliant and insane film at its best." Chris Barsanti piled on the praise in an October "Screener" column: "Charlie Kaufman comes closer to creating a kind of cinematic magic realism than any American director has done in living memory. And it’s only his first film." So, needless to say, we're looking forward to the DVD release on March 10th.
