Seldom, do Hollywood make such a good movie (imo)
Original is far too understated a term to describe this picture, brought to you by the surreal, twisted minds of screenwriter Charlie Kaufman and actor-director Spike Jonze. The story concerns a puppeteer, Craig Schwartz (John Cusack), who discovers his office has a secret portal that leads directly into the brain of one of America's most popular actors, John Malkovich (Malkovich himself, in a hilariously self-mocking appearance). When the journey ends fifteen minutes later, the participant is spewed onto the side of the New Jersey Turnpike. Schwartz uses his discovery as a way to get closer to fellow coworker Maxine (the always fascinating Catherine Keener). Together, the pair form JM, INC., which allows ordinary citizens to join in on the fun for 200 dollars a pop. But when Craig's wife Lotte (a homely Cameron Diaz), is seduced by Maxine while in Malkovich's body, things begin to unfurl at an even more outrageous pace. Sound confusing?

This film is genius. Despite the 'wintery economic climate', If you don't already have it then buy it!

Being a fan of JM, I've wanted to see this for ages. I just don't want to pay for it...

Pom, it IS one of the finest films ever. You need to kill/sell your soul/prostitute yourself etc to watch this film

What's all this 'Quidco' rubbish about anyway?

your PM box is too full to accept PMs, cleanup for incoming :thumbsup:

Spike Jonze was/is the most hyped of US pop-video makers that never became an auture he was supposed to. BeingJM & Adaptation are his best from what I saw, since haven't been able to see a film from start to finish for quite some years now, as no films being made are good enough for me. might find some time to see Inland Empire though.

And I posted that 10 mins before this one:p

One of the strangest films I have seen in years. Not sure I could watch it a second time.

One of the few DVDs I've bought that I haven't sold on.

I thought it was **** actually. A bit like where people stare at a canvas with two vertical lines on it and gasp " That's amazing!"

Totally agree with termin8r.
This is up there with "much ado about nothing" and "absolute beginners."
Wasted part of my life watching all those.

Absolutely LOVED this brilliant movie! Heat added.
