Being John Malkovich
Filmfest 2010

A metaphysical journey about identity, gender, creativity and the urge to transform oneself, BEING JOHN MALKOVICH looks as if it were hatched by Terry Gilliam or Lewis Carroll on drugs. It's silly, unpredictable and completely faithful to its perverse vision... Kaufman's script is so illogical and curlicued, so wonderfully foreign to the templates that Hollywood screenwriters all seem to follow, that it's impossible to see where all this is going - which is a great feeling for the viewer.
