Trazendo Nicolas Cage em excelente desempenho, o filme faz uma crítica ácida ao modus operandi de Hollywood e à própria auto-indulgência de seu autor, o genial Charlie Kaufman.
| Original Score: 5/5

. . .its exploration of ambition, loneliness and passion is amongst the most emotionally resonant in many years.

Chock full of true-to-life dialogue and inspirational insight, Adaptation is an ode to the frustrated artist in all of us.

It's the sort of movie that keeps reinventing itself and nudging us in the ribs as it does. You'll want to see it soon, because everyone you know will be talking about it.

A witty and provocative exploration of the craft that goes into our favorite medium.

The irresistibly wicked humor of this film is firmly rooted in despair. We can all relate.

Much like as happened with Punch Drunk Love, many audiences will find reason to be disappointed with this film, or at the very least confused. They won't get why there's no big finish, they won't follow the nuances of the script. Their bad.

Cage gives one of the best performances of his recent career as the Kaufmans. He's a natural in this role, especially when that great horse face breaks into an ingratiating grin...

'Compleja e intelectualmente retadora, El Ladrón de Orquídeas es uno de esos filmes que vale la pena ver precisamente por su originalidad.'

Una película, se diría, más allá de toda lógica.
March 16, 2003
Gets thoughts and sentences rushing down the hallways of the mind, screaming at each other to get past.
| Original Score: 4/4

Both Kaufmans are played by Nicolas Cage, whose goofy, moon-faced sincerity has never been put to funnier use.

Adaptation es una historia que mezcla de manera sublime el mundo real con el ficticio, las películas con los libros y los alter ego con la vida misma.
| Original Score: 9.5

You may never see its like again - but maybe you won't want to.

A brilliantly acted, extremely clever (perhaps too clever), multi-layered film that will repay several viewings.

This loopy comedy certainly scores points for originality -- or at least until it writes itself into a corner during the final half-hour.
| Original Score: 3/4

Avoid it like the plague. You may be intrigued until the very Donald Kaufman-esque climax. Who, by the way, isn't even a real person. Therein lies both the joke of the movie, and this joke of a movie.
| Original Score: 1.5/5

By focusing on fewer ideas, and resisting the urge to bit off more than he can chew, perhaps Kaufman can shape his next vision into a more focused work. In the meantime, let's rejoice that he's here.
