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. 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

I already saw this movie, in fact, I even saw it in the movie theater when it was released, but since it was such a long time ago, I was really eager to check it out again. In fact, 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 conv... read more

Description: Twisty brilliance from screenwriter Charlie Kaufman and director Spike Jonze, the team who created Being John Malkovich. 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. Frustrated and infatuated by Orlean's elegant but plotless book (which is largely a rumination on flowers), Kaufman begins to write a screenplay about himself trying to write a screenplay about The Orchid Thief, all the while hounded by his twin brother Donald (Cage again), who's cheerfully writing the kind of ...

"Adaptation 2002 | Drama | 1h 54m | R Director: Spike Jonze Writer: Charlie Kaufman Stars: Nicolas Cage, Meryl Streep, Chris Cooper A confused screenwriter struggles to adapt 'The Orchid Thief', not helped by his freeloading identical twin and the novel's author, Susan Orlean.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2018: February (30 movies items)

"First viewing - Feb. 8th I know, I know, I should've seen this one already. But hey, better late than never right? It's every bit as good as its reputation suggests...smart, funny, original, and it left me in awe of the storytelling. It didn't quite earn a perfect score from me, but it came close. I regret sleeping on it and will undoubtedly be revisiting it to make up for that error. Just a thought: Here's another film I can point to when I encounter someone who insists Nicolas Cage can't act"
