Marshall Harvey on

Being John Malkovich

Released 1999
Distributor USA Films

Spike Jonz directed this one-of-a-kind mind bender from the master of meta, screenwriter Charlie Kaufman. Kaufman’s Kafka-esque fantasy revolves around a down-and-out puppeteer (played by John Cusack) who discovers a hidden portal into the brain of an unsuspecting John Malkovich. Kaufman builds on the premise in one absurd scene after the other to create a new age screwball classic. Co-starring Cameron Diaz, Charlie Sheen and Malkovich as “himself”.
