Staff Pick: Joel Whitney

June 25, 2009

Joel_Whitney-small.jpg If you haven’t seen it yet, Synecdoche New York, by Charlie Kaufman, is a brilliant film that is sad, strange, illuminating, funny, epic, and totally original. While it isn’t light or brief or easy, there is nothing quite like it in cinema. Peter Bradshaw (in the Guardian) called it: “surreal, utterly distinctive, witty, gloomy in the manner that his fans will recognize and adore, but with a new epic confidence, absorbing the influences of Fellini and Lynch.”

Bio: Joel Whitney is a founding editor of Guernica. His last article, “The Genocide Myth”:, appeared in Guernica’s May 2009 issue.
