how do you review a film like this ?By Richard from Walsall, England , 22 Jan 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Original, weird or just thought provoking that is some of the thoughts that will enter your mind as you view this movie. The concept of being in control/being controlled is the central theme of this film and without giving too much away the exploration of this theme is done in an ingenious way.
The cast are superb , Cameron Diaz has never looked so different and the director gets top performances from them all.
If you enjoy films that make you think or are different from your normal run of the mill blockbuster then this is for you.

Brillaint + daftBy a customer , 05 Dec 2013A ridiculous premise, but very well told. I'm sure I work on the 7 1/2th floor. You should watch this is you appreciate a (sad) story that's somewhat daft.
Ludicrous but down to earthBy a customer , 10 Oct 2013Not out of key for a film written by Charlie Kaufman,whose brought us the likes of 'eternal sunshine of the spotless mind'. Zany,charismatic and hilariously ludicrous at times,it's an interesting watch,Highly recommended,with sinister themes of addiction,corruption and envy running throughout.
loving weird for a changeBy a customer , 10 May 2013This is one of the best movies I've ever seen. I'm not usually into weird, but this is weird good! Wouldn't you like to be someone else for a while? All these people want to be John Malkovich and when you watch the film, you will want to be too.
A beguiling watch!By thegodfather321 (1 review) , 11 Apr 2013This film has such depth and humour; it is a great film. The humour is just perfectly placed throughout the film. The drama is scary, gripping, and deep. The story is an incredibly original piece, and I was shocked to see how well it played out. The acting is magnificent: John Cusack is brilliant, John Malkovich is just plain hilarious as he spends most of the film mocking himself. Just brilliant.
Random and well worth watchingBy amazballs (2 reviews) , 01 Feb 2013It was a weird film, but worth watching. I love John Malkovich. This is very different and random. If you are normal, then you wont get it. This is so funny. More films like this please.
