My Favorite Charlie Kaufman Movie
Dana Schwartz
123

Remind me which Charlie Kaufman movie ends with the character getting what he wants.

Is it the one where the protagonist is forever trapped and paralyzed inside the body of another person?

Is it the one where his brother dies for no particular reason?

Or the one where his memory is erased and he’s doomed to re-live endless self-destructive patterns?

Maybe the one where he just kind of dies without seeing any meaningful results of his art?

Or do you mean the new one where his own self-destructive patterns destroy his hope for meaningful connection and he ends up back in his soul-crushing family?

At least we can ageee that his characters ALWAYS get what they want.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
