"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?

View all Being John Malkovich (1999) reviews
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.

“Oh Dios, oh Dios. Miren lo que pasa cuando juntas a uno de mis directores favoritos con uno de mis guionistas favoritos. Obtienes un equivalente occidental a las obras de Satoshi Kon. Tanto Jonze como Kaufman poseen cosas que me agradan frente a la mayoría de profesionales del cine pretenciosos de hoy en día. Al manejar temas de carácter anti escapista en sus obras y mezclándose con visuales raros y dirección creativa, desde Her, pasando por Synecdoche New York. Y como no, el caso de hoy me toca hablar acerca de Being John Malkovich.

La película es rara, bastante rara. Es un film que es difícil de describir dado los elementos fantasticos y los mensajes tan variados que toca. La premisa es acerca de un agujero que misteriosamente transporta al que se introduce en el al cuer” read more

Movie Reviews (2051-2100) (50 movies items)

" As weird, unique and funny as a comedy should be. That it also include John Malkovich in an unglamorous role making fun of himself helps a lot as characters suddenly find themselves trapped inside his mind due to a magical door. Among the few American comedies of the last twenty years that I have actually enjoyed every frame of - even when it goes into it's more darker and serious moments."

" Date: 1/25/2019 Viewed: Streaming (Amazon Rental) Rewatch I first saw this movie was 8 years old when it came out with my Dad and haven't seen it since then. 20 something years later, I decided to rent this movie off from Amazon Prime and I really enjoy it. This movie is a very creative and surreal film with great themes. I highly recommended it if you haven't seen it already."
