Moved it to the Movie Reviews section. More appropriate here.
"I was walking down the street with my friend and he said, "I hear music", as if there is any other way you can take it in. You're not special, that's how I receive it too. I tried to taste it but it did not work." - Mitch Hedberg

Freakin' awesome movie. Got weird in the end, but I still loved it. I cracked up almost every time someone got thrown out next to the turnpike. Even after it'd already happened like 6 times. It didn't cease to be hilarious. It's so absurd.

Mischief. Mayhem. Soap.
Lester: You think so, eh? Which comes first, L or... Glooph?

Craig: Glooph is not a letter, sir.

Lester: Damn, you are good. I tried to trick you. Okay, put these in order.

"Thank you for being kind enough to lie. You see, I've been very lonely in my isolated tower of indecipherable speech."

I am Jack's smirking revenge.

I love this movie. It's one of the greats, I think.
**** the Lakers!

Definitley a unique movie, but it was well worth watching. Just think about the story - You open a little door that goes into John Malkovich of all people's head for 15 minutes then get kicked out onto the New Jersey turnpike. WTF were they thinking when they wrote this script??

BEING JOHN MALKOVICH is a zany and uncompromisingly brilliant black comedy that boasts something very few American films can claim...originality. Charlie Kaufman's imaginative, Oscar-worthy screenplay centers around an unemployed puppeteer named Craig (John Cusack, in a delightfully unhinged turn), who gets a job as a file clerk at a company called Lestercorp, which is lodged between the 7th and 8th floors of an office building. Craig discovers a hole in the wall of his office which turns out to be a portal into the mind of actor John Malkovich, which allows those who enter to view the world from Malkovich's mind for 15 minutes, at which time they are then deposited at the side of the road on the New Jersey Turnpike. To reveal anymore of the story would be wrong for the uninitiated, but suffice it to say that director Spike Jonz has mounted a quirky and unpredictable roller coaster ride which keeps the viewer constantly guessing and consistently entertained. Cusack receives solid support from Catherine Keener, smart and vivacious in her Oscar-nominated turn as Maxine, Craig's partner-in-crime with whom he falls in love, Cameron Diaz as Craig's dizzy wife, Lottie, and, of course,Malkovich himself, who deserves major kudos for allowing us to laugh along with him, at himself and his image. A once in a lifetime cinematic experience.
