Being John Malkovich


A puppeteer discovers a magical portal which transports him into the head of actor John Malkovich for 15 minutes at a time. Soon he is renting out the opportunity, including to his wife, and the woman he has the hots for, which leads to some interesting events inside poor John's head. John is of course totally confused by all these strange people observing his life in minute detail. This comedy is completely original and unlike anything else you've ever seen.

Visitor Comments

Isma Manitsa (28): Couldn't decide whether it was absolutely brilliant, certainly unique, or total rubbish! It is a bizarre movie worth seeing.

Leon Treurnich (33): A strange movie with weird things happening in the background with apparently no-one noticing except the male lead.
