Robert McKee Explains Synecdoche, NY

“The world of a story must be small enough that you can become the God in it,” he said. “If you have a huge canvas it’s impossible to be the God of that universe and you’ll write cliches.”  Is this Robert McKee-ism the one-line explanation for Synecdoche, NY?  Is Charlie Kaufman, after imitating McKee in Adaptation, now embodying him?  Is Philip Seymour Hoffman just Being Robert McKee in this new film?
