I’d give Adaptation 4 stars. It’s a solid 3 star movie that gets my 1 star deep movie bonus. A lot of interesting ideas there; I think I need to see it again. It really resonated with me because I’d been thinking a lot recently about stuff it dealt with, things like life purpose and meaning and stuff like that. But yeah, way way better than Being John Malkovich, I think.
I’d give Abre Los Ojos (Open Your Eyes – Vanilla Sky was based on it) 4 stars also. Lots of interesting issues going on. Very absorbing.
