In-freaking-credible. I just watched this movie for the second time last night, and I was once again impressed by the truth and tact of this film. I was able to pick up on some hilarious self-depreciating lines the second time around, and enjoy Nick Cage's amazing performance all the more.
My thoughts on the third act: loved it. A lot of people weren't happy with the switch from Charlie to Donald-style screenwriting. I thought it served well for it's purpose.
The special features on the DVD aren't that great... and it would have been cool if they'd stuck in a trailer for "The 3", just to stick with the whole illusion that Donald is an acutal person.
The next Kauffman/Jonze flick to come out is "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"... possibly the best name for a movie EVER. Plus, it has Elijah Wood, Kirsten Dunst and Jim Carrey starring... a cast list I never would have thought was possible.

I would have to agree with you on everything you said about the movie. The performances were superb all around. I was wondering if anyone who has seen the movie found the orchid thief to be a worthwhile read. I am apprehensive only because so many ideas have been put into your head by the movie and it may be hard not to be distracted or a bit dissappointed.

I don't know really what to say about it other than I found it fantastic. The whole idea was great, and so interesting. I loved all the actors, and think they all did great. The meanings, the dialogue, twists, changes in the type of script (where supposedly "Donald" took over), etc. It thought it was all great. I love Charlie Kaufman, I think he's my favourite newer screenwriter. "You are what loves you." I just thought the film was so clever.

My friend said..and people have been writing in , saying that Cage is really one. he does not have a bro. I can't figure that out. Some of the dialogues and scenes include both of them. Can somone explain and point out the obvious to me??
