  3. ginobartolomi's rating of the film Adaptation.

    Really a brilliant film. Definitely my favorite of Jonze and possibly one of my favorite Meryl Streep performances. It’s just got that quality of fantasy to it that his more recent work has failed to grasp. The reality and relatability of it is almost as intoxicating as the fantasy itself. So tragic, so meta, but so easy to walk away feeling uplifted by the end.

  4. Malt Frisky's rating of the film Adaptation.

    A brief glimpse into the mind set of Kaufman, this is his own personal Fellini. This is one of Cage's best performances, something that was tailored made for him dealing with a stress and high anxiety writer but the final act is where the film loses me and that's kind of the point, which it did explain and I've got no one but myself to blame for disliking. A Deus Ex Machina to keep cinema audiences happy indeed =(

  6. (efe) ni's rating of the film Adaptation.

  7. Dan. R's rating of the film Adaptation.

    A surreal tale, magnificently written by the superb Charlie Kaufman. We follow Nicolas Cage and his struggle with writers block. He is tasked to write a screenplay about a book on orchids. The intricately interwoven events that unfold are mind bendingly original and offer insightful moments and revealing scenes on writing, creativity and the struggle of creating something worthwhile.

  8. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Adaptation.

    This is a writer's movie. Absolutely hilarious in its self-deprecation and subversive in respects to the "rules" of screenwriting.

  9. tri ...'s rating of the film Adaptation.

  12. MisterColo93's rating of the film Adaptation.

  13. Bob's rating of the film Adaptation.

    Multilayered screenplay about how to write a screenplay based on a fictional source material that is based on fictional reality which is based on the actual characters. It reconstructs the plot and rewrites the rules of writing, while being both consequent and contradictory. One of the finest screenplays ever that draws its power by hilariously mocking its protagonists and secures Nicolas Cage's best performance.

  14. Adri Azhari's rating of the film Adaptation.

    Charlie Kaufman wrote a film that he couldn't finish

  15. Eli K's rating of the film Adaptation.

    This film gives you a life lesson, but a very sad one: you shouldn't do what you love, you must do what they want to see and only then you will become successful. Our world is a mess. Great film.

  16. sofiazelaya's rating of the film Adaptation.

    cansadora en lo autorreferente

  17. Erica Narduzzi's rating of the film Adaptation.

    Una scelta originale quella di raccontare il film attraverso il processo creativo dello sceneggiatore dello stesso. Nicolas Cage ha dato una delle sue migliori interpretazioni, affiancato da due grandi attrici. Una visione piacevole, fatta forse eccezione per l'insolito e drastico cambio di genere sul finale. La commedia, fin lì, era venuta bene, l'improvviso dramma un po' meno, poco sentito e poco credibile.

  18. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film Adaptation.

    Jonze risulta nuovamente essere un regista rimpiazzabile, mentre Kaufman si dimostra uno sceneggiatore di qualità sopraffina. L'idea per il soggetto è estremamente interessante e la sceneggiatura è scritta egregiamente, eccezion fatta per uno scivolone narrativo verso il finale, che ho trovato eccessivo. Ho trovato Nicolas Cage stranamente bravo e convincente, mentre interpreta un film che tutto sommato è godibile.
