Being John Malkovich


 A puppeteer on the verge of a personality crisis takes a job as a filing clerk on the seventh-and-a-half floor, and digs out an entry point into the mind of the actor John Malkovich. The discovery will soon be economically exploited, offering more and more people the rejuvenating experience of "brain contact" and a strong dose of mental liberation at the same time. However, things get out of hand in no time and instead of just a psychedelic, surrealistic comedy we get an in-depth commentary on the insticts, needs and borders of the human mind, the constant will to be different or even someone else and the human predisposition to behave despotically or even play God when such a chance is given. Talented director Spike Jonze embraces perfectly the eccentric script of the enigmatic writer Charlie Kaufman and is fully supported by his well timed and balanced cast (John Cusack, Cameron Diaz, Catherine Keener, John Malkovich) in this bizarre, mind-bending film.
