Being John Malkovich was a landmark movie for a number of people, and a number of reason. First, it cemented (if it weren’t known already) that John Malkovich as a one of Hollywood’s quirkiest actors — essentially a pre-Bill Murray, Bill Murray. Secondly, it helped director Spike Jonze move from directing music videos like Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” among others to the big screen. And, the shape-shifting comedy was a sign of future things to come from the director (reference Her among others). But overall, the comedy has retained a strong cult-following that allows it to have a shelf life nearly 20 years after its release. If you can’t find John Cusack, Cameron Diaz, Catherine Keener and company on TV, don’t worry. You can pop in to the Frida Cinema and for a limited time, check out on the big screen — the way it was meant to be viewed.
