Being John Malkovich is a film unlike anything you have ever seen before.
It pushes the limits, and takes you in new, unexpected directions.
Every time I thought that I knew where
it was going, it surprised me and headed in another direction.
This movie is so complex and strange that
there's just too much material to cover in a short time.
So if you want to experience something
new and rare in film viewing, this one has many styles to sort
through and enjoy.
Being John Malkovich is a sharp, smart, surreal comedy that deals with
fame, puppetry, sexual identity (and their dire consequences).
It's sort of a 90s Alice in Wonderland
that's fresh, hip, and--at the same time--bizarre. Too strange
to pass up. "I'll see you in Malkovich in an hour."
Being John Malkovich is, I think, the strangest movie of the Fall. It's
a weird, disturbed head trip inside the actor's mind.
The thing I liked about this picture is
watching the entire cast of actors working at full creative speed
and knowing how much they're enjoying the insanity of this crazy
script. I also liked a brilliant piece of seamless digital illusion
where Malkovich appears in a dream sequence as multiple versions
Very impressive and funny and entertaining,
if you can handle imaginative weirdness.
