Being John Malkovic

As a rule of thumb, if a film has John Cusack in it, it's guaranteed to be quirky. Being John Malckovic is an extraordinary surreal film about a young man who discovers a pathway through to the inside of John Malkovic's mind. Together with an office co-worker, he builds a business, charging others to spend a short time in the actor's mind.

What is the secret of this mysterious closet? What would happen if Malkovich discovers what they are doing? What would happen if he entered the closet?

A compelling story, well told, with fascinating performances -- especially the de-glamourised Cameron Diaz. Highly recommended.

Nicky says:
This is quite simply one of the most original, funny and imaginative films around. It works on several levels, and handles all of them smoothly. The script is tight and witty, the performances flawless and the sets and costumes a delight.
