#Followbruary2017 Movie No. 4
What a breath of fresh air. Adaptation is one of the most meta movies i've ever seen, with one of the most genius screenplays ever written. Charlie Kaufman is one of the greats. Eternal Sunshine, Being John Malkovich, Synecdoche New York & Adaptation are all some of the most original and fantastic screenplays out there, and are all standout movies for me.
Nicolas Cage shines in one of his greatest roles so far. Meryl Streep and Chris Cooper also do amazing jobs as well. The film is great in some ways, and perfect in others. I found myself smiling at times at how smart this whole movie is, and how someone could actually come up with it. This could easily be a 5 star movie after a rewatch.
