What does Being John Malkovich have in common with most other movies from the last decade? Not much as it turns out, and therein lies the brilliance of this strange masterpiece.

Being John Malkovich unites one of the most bizarre scripts to ever be filmed with a cast that seems made for their parts (quite literally in the case of Malkovich). A puppeteer (John Cusack) begins a new job on the hidden seventh and a half floor of an unusual office building, soon discovering a portal that leads into the life of John Malkovich. After vouyeuristically experiencing the Malkovich reality for fifteen minutes, the 'guest' is unceremoniously dumped on the outskirts of town. The events that follow transform his life, unleashing conflicts over love, control and identity as he introduces others to the portal, including his wife (an almost unrecognizable Cameron Diaz).

The big screen directorial debut of Spike Jonze (director of Fatboy Slim's award-winning 'Praise You' music video), Being John Malkovich is a quirky classic and a complete mind trip, deserving all the critical praise it has received.
