  1. I remember that movie well. It was really different, but well done. I always wondered what it was like for John Malkovich to be in a movie that is named after him? Happy Sunday. Hugs-erika

  2. OMGOLLY! A movie I've actually SEEN. Put that in the win column for me. As I recall, I really enjoyed it, and laughed a lot, too.

    1. Mind bending is right! That last scene was freaky.
