This is one of my favorite movies. It stands out from other films because it is so original. The performances are great, especially Catherine Keener's, who radiates from the screen. I believe that people who appreciate great cinema will absolutely fall in love with this movie. There are so many details that make up this movie, so many little quirks. But, they never distract from the film, only enhance it. The best film of 1999. Charlie Kaufman is a great screenwriter. If you haven't already, check out Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Adaptation. I think I actually prefer Eternal Sunshine to Being John Malkovich, which says a lot. It was my favorite film of 2004.

Being John Malkovich Is a very well done comic fantasy film. It is about a puppeteer named Craig{John Cusak} who's wife{Cameron Diaz} wants him to get a white coller job. So Craig gets a job in an office building where he finds a door leading to the brain of actor John Malkovich played by himself. His fellow worker Maxine{Cathrine Keener} wants to let other people go in Malkivich's brain for two hundred dollers. Malkivich does not like this and goes in the door himself in a very bizarre scene. This movie was like nothing hollywood has ever done before. It set a new milestone for films. The black humor is not for everyone but I certainly enjoyed it.

This is one of the strangest movie I have seen. It had a very strange story line that I was interested in watching till the end to see how it unravels. The movie is about a guy who finds a portal to John Malcovich's brain. Anyone who goes into the portal can watch what John Malcovich is doing and ''be'' John Malcovich for 15 minutes.

original doesn't automatically mean good. critics are just suckers for something that's not produced by jerry bruckheimer. if all you care about is originality, go see this film. But, If you care about well developed characters, a good story-line, and originality as well, go see fight club or a cohen brothers film.

Where do I begin? The only good excuse for making Cameron Diaz so ugly is a really entertaining story. Being John Malkovich was not entertaining. I hated this story almost as much as I hated the characters in it. There was not one likable character present. It's unfortunate because there were good actors in the movie. But, about halfway through, I found myself silently rooting for Malkovich to kill all of them. I felt so betrayed by the critics who praised this movie. It was like going to the doctor and being told, this won't hurt. If there is any justice in movies, there will be a sequel that features the brutal destruction of all of these characters

This may have been the most overrated, overhyped movie I have ever seen, and that includes Batman and Robin. While this was a very unique idea for a story, I found it more difficult to watch than rectal surgery on The Learning Channel. The characters in this film were so utterly unlikeable. I actually found myself hoping that Malkovich would catch them and torture them to death, I hated them that much. If I had to live with people who acted like the characters the three leads portray, I would go insane, or swallow poison. Cusack, Keener, and Diaz are wasted in these atrocious character roles, especially Diaz. I mean, if you are going to make such a beautiful actress look like Tracey Ullman, at least give the viewer something to like about her. I wanted to vomit when I saw her in this movie. I kept hoping it would get better though, and like all terrible disasters, one just cannot look away. So, I watched the whole thing. This movie should be given as a present to your boss, a relative by marriage, or someone else whom you really do not like. Let this be a warning to everyone who watches movies for entertainment and is considering this title: YOU WILL NEVER GET THOSE 100 OR SO MINUTES OF YOUR LIFE BACK, EVER!!!!
