Being John Malkovich on DVD
In lieu of a career as a puppeteer, Craig Schwartz (John Cusack) finds himself working in an office space on the peculiarly positioned seventh-and-a-half floor of a Manhattan office building. There, he stumbles upon a secret portal that leads him into the mind of actor John Malkovich, playing himself. The portal becomes not so secret when he shares his findings with his quirky wife (Cameron Diaz) and attractive coworker (Catherine Keener). The situation then devolves into a very complicated love triangle with Malkovich in the middle, his free will in question along with the meaning of existence for all involved.
Being John Malkovich has a 93% Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and received four stars from Roger Ebert. It was also nominated for three Oscars, including Spike Jonze for Best Director and Charlie Kaufman for Best Original Screenplay. Jonze and Kaufman later collaborated on Adaptation.
