Eclectic Curiosity

Spike Jonze is so good he can even make Nicolas Cage seem like a good actor (twice). Jonze, perhaps our time’s best example of a highly talented Renaissance man, once again puts forth something amazingly clever and original with his new film Adaptation. The story, written by screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (who also teamed up with Jonze on Being John Malkovich), is about screenwriter Charlie Kaufman writing a screenplay about Susan Orlean, the authour of the book (The Orchid Thief) that he is adapting for film – as he was actually to adapt for film. It’s a confusing set up of characters but a brilliant mindbender of a plot about writing, books, movies, flowers, life, love and human evolution.
