Charlie Kaufman’s last film was released last September. I think I’m finishing things up on Netflix. But the film deserves to be seen in the cinema, with its particularity to place the spectator in a private world. Like his previous Charlie Kaufman films, which feature different worlds and are full of dazzling elements, the most famous of them is the Eternal Sun of the Flawless Spirit for which he won the Oscar for Best Screenplay.
All of Charlie Kaufman’s films are unique and dreamlike in their randomness and absurdity. Kaufman creates a parallel reality with his own laws to present important and realistic ideas in unreal worlds. Between surrealistic ideas and events, sometimes simplified and very complex at other times, and discussion of human subjects such as relationships and psychological conflicts, the long hours delight the viewer. So what did Kaufman do before this movie?

Imagine the strangeness of reality rivaling the strangeness of Charlie Kaufman’s scenarios! Chuck Paris was no ordinary life, which allowed Kaufman to turn him into a movie script.

Michael is a successful man in his field, but he suffers from boredom in every detail of his life, especially the people he deals with on a daily basis. Meaningless, artificial and duplicated conversations walking on the floor, which allowed him to truly see all people with one face and the same voice. He travels on a business trip and tries to break through this boredom with everything he has, and it happens when he finds a girl different from the others called Lisa.
Kaufman visualized human reality in an animated film and even took advantage of it by having the performers of only three voices, Michael, Lisa, and someone else, be everyone’s voices. He took a deep look at life in general and human relationships in particular, which are usually steeped in apathy and boredom. And present all aspects of our lives as a given that we engage in without thinking without stopping and enjoying it, in a bleak and realistic scenario to a large extent.

Kaufman wrote the script for the film based on the novel of the same name and directed it for us. Lots of long dialogue that seems empty of gossip but has meaning behind it, few actors in limited places and a camera that doesn’t move much that portrays a lifeless atmosphere. All are elements that have helped to draw the big picture of the film, which is the human being trapped in himself without real life, in this film which draws the viewer into an atmosphere of psychological horror.
