Once in a great while, a movie comes along that seems to leap off of the film, and into our once stable world, creating a bizarre new reality: Being John Malkovich is one such film. A puppeteer, currently working as a filer, finds the portal to Mr. Malkovich's brain, and all sorts of weird hijinks ensue. If Dr. Seuss's imagination had a head-on collision with that of Kurt Vonnegut's, you might have something like Being John Malkovich. Without flinching, the movie shows us how perverse, self-centered and amoral we all are, and it has us laughing our asses off the entire time. Now that's a rare accomplishment in a film so entirely rare that I don't think we'll ever see any like it again.
I'd give it 10 Juicy squirts out of a possible 10
