Being John Malkcovich


  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


An unsuccessfully puppeteer (John Cussack) discovers a 'portal' into the mind of John Malkovich and sets up a business selling 15 minute rides inside the actor's head.

This amazingly original, surreal comedy (Jonze's first feature) is all the more surprising as it comes from a Hollywood studio. The cast masterfully keep the audience involved in the convoluted plot, while Jonze has shown himself to be one of the most audacious debut directors in recent times.

Nominated for three Academy Awards, inclusing Best Director.
