Being John Malkovich: The Criterion Collection

Have you ever wanted to be someone else? Or, more specifically, have you ever wanted to crawl

through a portal hidden in an anonymous office building and thereby enter the cerebral cortex

of John Malkovich for fifteen minutes before being spat out on the side of the New Jersey

Turnpike? Then director Spike Jonze and writer Charlie Kaufman have the movie for you. Melancholy marionettes, office drudgery, a frizzyhaired

Cameron Diaz- but that's not all! Surrealism, possession,

John Cusack, a domesticated primate, Freud, Catherine Keener, non

sequiturs, and absolutely no romance! But wait: get your Being John Malkovich now and we'll throw in

emasculation, slapstick, Abelard and Heloise, and extra Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich.
