“Have you ever had two people look at you, with complete lust and devotion, through the same pair of eyes?”
Join us on the 7 1/2 floor of The Rio Theatre for director Spike Jonze’s brilliantly insane and insanely brilliantly work of magic-realism, BEING JOHN MALKOVICH (which will be screening as part of a double-bill featuring Charlie Kaufman’s latest masterful work of puppet-inspired cinema, ANOMALISA, at 7:00 pm).
This breathtakingly unique and wildly-imagined cult-favorite follows mildly neurotic puppeteer Craig Schwartz (John Cusack), who reluctantly takes a temp job at a strange office only to discover a bizarre portal leading directly… Into the mind of actor John Malkovich. Featuring crazed monkey flashbacks, Cameron Diaz, one of the strangest three-ways ever put on film, Charlie Sheen, puppets, Catherine Keerner, the New Jersey turnpike, and, of course – MALKOVICH!
“The crazy-ass imagination at work in BEING JOHN MALKOVICH hits you like a blast of pure oxygen. Unblemished by solemnity, intellectual pretensions or elephant dung, this movie of constant astonishments will make you laugh hard and long.” (Rolling Stone)
