Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Adaptation. (2002)

Directed by Spike Jonze

Starring Nicolas Cage, Tilda Swinton, Meryl Streep, Chris Cooper


A bit long and windy for me. It’s all over the place. Watching this movie is like riding a bucking bronco. I’d rather ride a Porsche.

Cage his great, especially his monologues. Cooper is perfect, Streep is depressingly real, and Swinton’s always a high-class slut. Cool getting the cast back for snippets of Being John Malkovitch. Jonze sure likes to duplicate his characters.

A lot of interesting shots. Jonze definitely has a visual talent. Two of the most graphic car crashes I’ve ever seen.
