"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."

Adaptation is another unusual and deep story that is hilarious and dramatic when it comes to twists and effective consequences. Adaptation is a film that is rather bright and funny regarding flowers and other plants but is very weird because of the way this film is filmed and produced. The story attracted my attention the most as well as the unbelievable ensemble cast. I loved this film a lot beca... read more

" Notes: I do remember quite well when it came out. Indeed, back then, ‘Being John Malkovich’ had become a big cult-classic but, to be honest, even though I did like how wild and original it was, it didn’t completely convince me. However, with this follow-up, Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman really managed to blow me away. Indeed, it was once again a really wild and surrealist tale but, in contrary to ‘Being John Malkovich’, it managed to keep my attention until the very end. Seriously"

Partiendo de una premisa así, y conociendo el estilo surrealista de sus películas, uno puede imaginar el tipo de obra con la que se encontrara.

La película nos retrata a Charlie sufriendo un severo bloque de escritor, dando mil vueltas en su cabeza mientras trata de escribir un guion que el considere "honesto y significativo". Mientras se ve atrapado en una neurosis cada vez más grave, vemos como su vidas ve afectada, pues va empeorando en sus fobias” read more
