“What an endlessly inventive movie this is! Supplies a stream of dazzling inventions, twists and wicked paradoxes.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Have you ever wanted to be someone else? Or, more specifically, have you ever wanted to crawl through a portal hidden in an anonymous office building and enter the cerebral cortex of John Malkovich for fifteen minutes, before being spat out on the side of the New Jersey Turnpike? After working for a decade as one of the most inventive directors of music videos and commercials, often blending live-action, animation, and puppetry, Spike Jonze made the leap to the big screen with Being John Malkovich. From a mind-bending, Oscar-nominated script by Charlie Kaufman, this hilariously surreal comedy follows puppeteer Craig Schwartz (John Cusack), who discovers a secret portal that leads into the mind of movie star John Malkovich. When Schwartz’s wife (Cameron Diaz) and co-worker (Catherine Keener) catch wind of this bizarre phenomenon, they begin using the actor to advance their own agendas, leading to hijinks involving domesticated primates, creepy marionettes, and visits to the seventh-and-a-half floor. (Dir. by Spike Jonze, 1999, USA, 113 mins., Rated R)
