Synopsis

In music video maestro Spike Jonze's crazily inventive feature debut, down-on-his-luck puppeteer Craig Schwartz discovers a mysterious portal that allows him to enter the head of John Malkovich (here sportingly playing himself) for 15 minutes at a time. Soon, he and his cynical co-worker Maxine are charging other people for the pleasure of 'being' the famously intense actor. Charlie Kaufman's ingenious tail-chasing script overflows with all kinds of philosophical questions but, above all, never forgets to be extremely funny.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
