The excellent architecture blog Life Without Buildings recently scored an interview with Charlie Kaufman, one of Hollywood's rare inventive screenwriters. They discuss the use of space in Being John Malkovich a bit, but the focus of the interview is largely on Kaufman's upcoming movie, Synecdoche, New York, which he wrote and directed. It looks like Kaufman comes out brains blazing in this film-its title is a play on the similarly-sounding words 'Schenectady' (a city) and 'synecdoche' (a noun nobody uses much). We're excited. It's out on October 24.
