The eerie perspective, bold plotline and a potential premise are the high points of this feature which unfortunately is supervised without any care and hence fades off into just a mere blurred out idea in this overlong feature. Spike Jonze seems a bit distracted from the main track and hence leads it into a boring ride that may have an interesting climax but the journey is certainly not worth it. The performance objective is completely satisfactory in here for Nicolas Cage and Meryl Streep both are putting all their chips in and delivers what is essential. Adaptation might be something plausible on terms of art and craft but when it comes to blend all it in and offer intriguing and gripping tale along with entertainment to the audience, it fails on all levels.
A self loathing screen writer mixes the adaptation of a book about a flower thief with his self loathing, jealous, constantly masterbating life. The only way to describe the pace of the movie is agonizing. Solid character acting from Nicholas Cage, Meryl Streep and Chris Cooper saved the movie from a "worst of all time" category.
