I went to see Being John Malkovich yesterday afternoon with Liz, Katy and Rhonda. I can’t tell you how excited and inspired I was. I think it has been years since I saw such imagination and playfulness on screen – and I don’t think that I have ever seen it from a Hollywood studio. The Guardian has assembled a pretty useful page collating all the British responses to the film – definitely worth a visit.
This is turning into quite a year for impressive film-making – a few months ago, American Beauty stomped on my head, and now this! And next week – Magnolia. It’s at times like this when I really hate the fact that UK release dates are so far behind the US.
