Being John Malkovich (1999, fantasy and farce)

Avant-garde screenwriter Charlie Kaufman brings us the wacky story of Craig (John Cusack), an unsuccessful street puppeteer who discovers a hidden doorway in an office building which turns out to be a magical portal into the famous actor John Malkovich's mind (Malkovich portrays himself, but doesn't quite pull it off. Psych!). One can "be" Malkovich for only 15 minutes, but it turns out to be the ultimate tourist trap as Craig and a greedy entrepreneur named Maxine (Catherine Keener) work to exploit the discovery. Cameron Diaz plays Lotte, Craig's wife. She keeps several emotionally disturbed animals (mainly simians) in their small apartment - one of the primates even goes to a psychiatrist for feelings of insecurity.
