Surrealist comic marvel distinguished by the most bizarre of plots - washed-up puppeteer John Cusack’s new position as a filing clerk leads to the discovery of a ‘portal’ that enables him to enter the body of actor John Malkovich(!).
Geared by its own internal logic and sustained by countless sub-ideas that keep popping out of its woodwork, this is seemingly conceived out of a strange dream that someone was obsessed enough to memorise, foolhardy enough to materialise, and genius enough to make work. For those jaded by the predictability of most contemporary cinema, this comes as a comprehensive antidote. ~ AroVideo
