Fabulously funny and delightfully disturbed, "Being John Malkovich'' is the ultimate voyeur movie, a dark and at times malevolent take on what it's like to be in someone else's skull, looking out.

Devilishly inventive and so far out there it's almost off the scale.

This outrageous comic fantasy may not sustain its brilliance throughout its 112 minutes, but it keeps cooking for so much of that time that I don't have many complaints.

By the time the tunnel worthy of the likes of Gulliver and Alice becomes a freeway clogged with bit players, a big chill has descended on all the characters.

It is hard to mix moods -- the film is manic, subtle, comic and vaguely sad -- but [Jonze] does it masterfully.

It's clever, witty, dark and, most importantly, unwaveringly bizarre.

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

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.

Dazzlingly singular movies aren't often this much fun.

Cusack and Diaz are adorable schlumps.

I don't know how a movie this original got made today, but thank God for wonderful aberrations.
January 1, 2000
A supremely, almost effortlessly inventive and hilarious experience.

Mr. Jonze's film, with a terrific original screenplay by Charlie Kaufman, is not the first to explore the prospect of being able to sneak into the mind of another person. But Mr. Jonze's version is definitely the most fun.
January 1, 2000
A hilariously novel conception.
January 1, 2000
Highly original script.
