Being John Malkovich Reviews
September 10, 2002
Defies all expectations. It touches you in places you didn't think a film could reach. It's everything at once, thoughts, feelings, urges... But it is not total confusion. It does make sense. A lot. And it's hysterically funny, too!

It's tremendously entertaining, and probably worthy of repeat viewings.

So poucas, as vezes em que podemos realmente dizer 'Nunca vi algo assim!'. Este filme consegue se encaixar nesta rara descrio.

Gender and relationships shift and merge and re-form like blobs of goo in a lava lamp a profoundly anti-human fantasy.

Everyone in this clever, funny film seems to be having a great time, and so do we.

Jonze is a blithe puppeteer himself, and his canny self-referentiality is nonetheless ingenuous, though at times he gets a little too cute and frivolous for his own good.

Wonderfully inventive, wickedly funny, and thoughtful enough to keep your mind on full alert, it's a square peg in the round world of genre films.

There was a scene in Being John Malkovich that ranks as the funniest scene I have ever, well, seen, in a movie. That would be when John Malkovich goes through the portal into his own mind. I laughed so hard that I fell out of my chair.

The filmmakers are stoned on weirdness for its own sake, which is the danger of becoming too enthralled by the freewheeling ethos of the '60s.

A hilarious and beguiling comedy-adventure-mystery-romance hybrid. And it's not just the jaw-dropping oddity of the thing that makes it work; the film has a wonderfully involving -- and even moving -- storyline.

Ribald Kafkaesque romp Being John Malkovich contemplates the nature of sexual identity and celebrity with a surrealist shtick that owes plenty to Buuel and Svankmajer.

An incredibly rich and entertaining (not to say, laudably malevolent) film that far transcends its already way-out title premise.

Cinta sumamente original que va a dejar pensando al espectador tiempo despus de que ste abandone la sala de proyeccin

We get self-absorbed characters seeking personal happiness, no matter how it may affect others, especially Malkovich.

a hilariously perverse riff on love triangles, identity, and fame
