Strange, bizarre, yet engaging flick

"You see the world through John Malkovich's eyes. Then after about 15 minutes, you're spit out into a ditch on the side of the New Jersey Turnpike!"

Feature films as remarkably audacious and endlessly inventive as Being John Malkovich are few and far between. This reassuringly unique movie denotes the feature film debut of director Spike Jonze, who had previously been responsible fo... read more

Odd but absolutely fantastic to watch!

Being John Malkovich is one of the weirdest films that I have ever seen. It has a very weird story which is a very heard thinking plot in a motion picture because of how effective it can be if one enters another person's mind and how it can work. On the weird side to the story, it is both sick and weird that a portal is invented and can control a person's mind. Actually, it is also pretty insane. ... read more

Wow, if I were a film producer and some guy came to me with this screenplay i probably would ask him if he's on crack!
I fell in love with this movie since the first puppet scene on the beginning.
this makes you think about a lot of philosophical questions & you can find that you have anything to proof that you never'll know if someone had been on your head?

A puppeteer discovers a hidden doorway in his office, which turns out to be a portal into John Malkovich (the famous actor)'s mind. Upon entering the portal, one gets to be inside Malkovich's mind for 15 odd minutes. As with any great discovery of this century, the ultimate question immediately arises : 'How can we make money out of this?' He and his co-worker promptly set out to exploit this discovery. It doesn't take long for things to go haywire.

" Vista: 20/05/2017 Vista por primera vez. Opinión: Pese a ser inferior a varias de las otras películas del escritor como Eternal Sunshine, Anomalisa o Adaptation, sigue estando buena y para ser su opera prima hizo un trabajo competente, tal y como podrán notar, ya desde el concepto la película llega a ser bastante creativa, es una idea extraña pero muy interesante y única, y, en parte, el filme logra aprovechar bien esa idea al mostrarnos como afecta a los personajes todo esto de la puerta"

A good movie

“To be honest, it has been a while since I saw this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. In fact, I’m pretty sure I actually saw the damned thing in the movie theater when it was released. Well, I have to admit it, it is definitely one of the weirdest movies I have ever seen. Indeed, the concept was just completely surreal, it had never ever seen anything so original before and the first half of the movie was really quite awesome. Unfortunately, I do believe that the whole thing lost some steam in the 2nd half and, therefore, I never considered this movie to be really a masterpiece. Basically, it all depends how you connect with the weird stuff displayed in this movie. In my case, I thought it was at first quite awesome but, at some point, I had the feeling that the writ” read more

" Notes: To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Still, I remember it very well and I even saw it in the movie theater when it was released. Anyway, at the end of the day, I have to admit that I had some rather mixed feelings about the whole thing. I mean, I really liked it, no doubt about it, and it remains one of the most original movies I have ever seen. And, yet, even though the first half was really amazing and quite "
