See the world through John Malkovich’s eyes for about 15 minutes at a time in this surrealist dramedy. Depressed puppeteer Craig Schwartz, played by John Cusack, seizes the opportunity and changes multiple lives in the process. The debut feature from director Spike Jonze and screenwriter Charlie Kaufman is as delightfully quirky now as it was upon its release.
