This film is a miracle!

"There are too many ideas and things and people. Too many directions to go. I was starting to believe the reason it matters to care passionately about something, is that it whittles the world down to a more manageable size."

Although 2002's Adaptation is based on Susan Orlean's nonfiction book The Orchid Thief, it's far more than that label implies. While the screenplay by Charlie K... read more

Adaptation is another unusual and deep story that is hilarious and dramatic when it comes to twists and effective consequences.

I know a lot of people trash Nicolas Cage and it is true that many of his movies are worthless. However, I still believe he is a very talented actor and from time to time, out of nowhere, he gives one of the best perfomance of the year. This movie is a good example of this "phenomenom". Of course, Cage is not the only actors giving a good perfomance in this movie. The writing and directing are ama... read more

Nicolas Cage returns to form with a funny, sad, and sneaky performance as Charlie Kaufman, a self-loathing screenwriter who has been hired to adapt Susan Orlean's book The Orchid Thief into a screenplay.

"31.5.2015 Jos olisin nähnyt tämän joskus kolme-neljä vuotta sitten, tai silloin milloin tätä kohtaan heräsi jotain kiinnostusta, olisin saattanut pitää enemmän, mutta nyt tuntui lähinnä siltä, ettei meno ole lainkaan niin nokkelaa kuin on yritetty. Tai nokkeluudessa ammutaan itseään jalkaan. Itseironisuudessa mentiin jo liiankin pitkälle. Aina kun elokuvassa heitetään viittausta ihan mihin vain käsikirjoituksessa nähtäviin tarinankerronnallisiin jippoihin, kikkailuihin ja s"
