5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!, 22 Oct 2008
By 
This review is from: Adaptation [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
This film is very unique in its narrative and very clever. I loved the comedic moments in the film from Nicholas Cage, and Chris Cooper and Meryl Streep are hilarious as John Laroche and Susan Orlean. Its a different kind of story where the first part of the film is based on true life with Susan Orlean writing a book about John Laroche, the Orchid thief. Ther meetings are shown in flashbacks as Charlie Kaufman is attempting to write a screenplay about the book. The second part of the film is complete fiction and illustrates everything that Kaufman didn't want in his screenplay - drugs, sex, car chases etc. The unexpected action scene comes as a shock to the viewer and at the end you are wondering what the hell just happened! An excellent film that really stands out on its own. Its not a hollywood blockbuster movie, its both comedy and action and it doesn't suit everyones taste but i love it nontheless. Sometimes its good to see a different kind of film. A well deserved oscar for Chris Cooper and another nomination for Meryl Streep (which she should have definatley won!)
