This movie had me completely absorbed,
from beginning to end, as I waited eagerly for each new step.
This star-studded cast of actors all deliver
brilliant performances. Nicholas Cage plays two roles, one his
twin brother and should definitely be considered at Oscar time.
This original film which combines this
caliber of acting with such a clever story, succeeds on all levels.
Just a rewarding movie experience for me.
Nicholas Cage stars as Charlie Kaufman,
the man who wrote the screenplay for this movie.
Self-indulgent? You bet, and then some.
Add to the mix, Nicholas Cage playing his nonexistent twin brother,
Donald, Meryl Streep as the authoress whose book nobody can turn
into a movie, and Chris Cooper as a Zen orchid collector and
you have one of the funniest movies to come along since Being
And since Spike Jonze directed both, who
could ask for anything more?
is a multileveled funhouse of a movie, the latest loony concoction
from the creators of the brain twister Being John Malkovich.
They play more mind games with this daring
oddity. The film is a hyper-ambitious, triple twisty, dark comedy
that toys with conformity and the audience.
It doesn't make sense, but how can you
not be curious?
