this is one bizarre film, but i liked it!


I was never a big fan of John Malkovich until I saw this movie. I never really understood what the big deal is. But this movie has him doing a phenomenal job of acting. It is weird, funny, and impossible to stop watching. It's a complete fantasy, Alice down the rabbit hole kind of movie.

Unique, creative!

Impossible not to enjoy. A must-watch!


This movie definitely messes with your head and consists of a very strange love triangle. That being said when you watch it just try to keep an open mind.
