charlie kaufman is like the dude when you first start watching movies that you’re like, this guy is amazing! and then you come to appreciate the finer points of screenwriting, like the simplistic beauty of a well-executed thriller and you sort of stop being impressed by ambitious mind-benders that don’t really pay off.

wow, i wish i could have formulated that thought without sounding like such an asshole.

but, yeah. charlie kaufman, good but overrated.
