Being John Malkovich (1999) (C)
"... a brilliant comic fantasy."
Peter Tavers, Rolling Stone.
Craig Schwartz (John Cusack) is a struggling street puppeteer. To make some money, Craig takes a job as a filing clerk. One day, he accidentally discovers a door... a portal into the brain of John Malkovich (played by John Malkovich)! For 15 minutes, he experiences the ultimate head trip - HE is being John Malkovich. Then he's dumped onto the New Jersey turnpike.
With his beautiful office mate Maxine (Catherine Keener) and his pet-obsessed wife (Cameron Diaz), he hatches a plan to let others into John's brain for only $200 a trip. See what all the critics are talking about! -- (C) Universal Pictures, 1999, USA.
