“Trojan Horse Magnum”

Caden Cotard, a theatre director producing a version of Death of a Salesman in which he casts young actors in the roles of Willy and Linda Loman, finds his life unraveling. Suffering from numerous physical ailments, he is depressed and alienated from his wife Adele and flirting with Hazel, the woman who works in the box office. His nadir is reached when Adele leaves him for a new life in Berlin, taking their daughter Olive with her.

At this point, Caden unexpectedly receives a MacArthur Fellowship, giving him the money to pursue his artistic interests. He is determined to use it to create an artistic piece of brutal realism and honesty, something into which he can pour his whole self. Gathering an ensemble cast into an enormous warehouse in Manhattan’s theater district, he directs them in a celebration of the mundane, instructing each to live out their constructed lives.

As the mockup inside the warehouse grows increasingly mimetic of the city outside, Caden continues to look for solutions to his personal crises. He is traumatized as Adele becomes a celebrated painter in Berlin and Olive grows up under the questionable guidance of Adele’s friend Maria. He marries Claire, an actress in his cast. Their relationship fails and he continues his awkward relationship with Hazel. Meanwhile, a mysterious condition is systematically shutting down his autonomic functions one by one.

As the years rapidly pbum, the continually expanding warehouse is isolated from the deterioration of the city outside. Caden buries himself ever deeper into his magnum opus, blurring the line between the world of the play and that of reality by populating the cast and crew with doppelgängers. For instance, Sammy Barnathan is cast in the role of Caden in the play after Sammy reveals that he has been obsessively following Caden for twenty years, while Sammy’s lookalike is cast for his part. Sammy’s own interest in Hazel sparks a revival of Caden’s relationship with her.

As he pushes the limits of his relationships, both personally and professionally, Caden lets an actress take over his role as director and takes her previous job as Adele’s cleaning lady. He lives out his days under the replacement director’s instruction, finally preparing for death as he rests his head on the shoulder of an actress in the play, seemingly the only person left alive in the warehouse. As the scene fades to grey, Caden says that he has an idea for how to do the play when the director’s voice in his ear gives him his final cue: “Die.”

If I can write this, my whole life has been wasted. I'm worthless and awful.

We’re all hurtling towards death; yet here we are for the moment, alive.

Death is, in fact, the main theme underlying Synecdoche, always looming larger than the challenges of life. Love is desired and endlessly pursued, but portrayed as ultimately fleeting and tragic.

It’s about what it truly means to be human.

It’s also about how to make an incredibly pretentious movie (it’s more of an underlying hidden meaning though).

The theme is man’s inhumanity to man. And the moral is to always be yourself.
