“A wonderfully demented fantasia . . . inspired madness . . . a metaphysical journey about identity, gender, creativity and the urge to transform oneself, Being John Malkovich looks as if it were hatched by Terry Gilliam or Lewis Carroll on drugs.” ―Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle
“A clever and outrageous piece of whimsical fantasy that is unique, unpredictable, and more than a little strange. Kaufman . . . has a truly singular imagination.” ―Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times
“More than just the latest cool, smart, funny movie. It jumps off the screen with . . . freshness, originality and [a] light-handed stranglehold on the Zeitgeist.” ―Jay Carr, The Boston Globe
“Every once in a long, long while a movie comes along that is like no other. A movie that creates a new world for us and uses it to produce wonderful things.” ―Roger Ebert, Chicago-Sun Times
“The most excitingly original movie of the year.” ―Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
