BEING JOHN MALKOVICH
1999, Universal, 112 min, USA, Dir: Spike Jonze

Director Spike Jonze and writer Charlie Kaufman made their feature debuts - and earned Oscar nominations - with this surreal fantasy. When puppeteer Craig Schwartz (John Cusack) gets a job at the strange LesterCorp, he discovers a secret portal leading into the mind of John Malkovich. When Schwartz’s wife (Cameron Diaz) and co-worker (Catherine Keener) learn of this, they begin using the actor to advance their own agendas.


FOURPLAY
2012, 80 min, USA, Dir: Kyle Henry

In this anthology of shorts, four intimate tales of sexual triumph and travail play out in four American cities. In Skokie, Ill., a closeted woman’s crush on her minister’s wife erupts during a weekend of dog sitting. In Austin, a young couple discovers a kinky way to keep their relationship alive. In Tampa, a man with an extremely small penis finds his nirvana in a public restroom. And in San Francisco, a cross-dressing sex worker faces a challenging assignment with a quadriplegic man, arranged by the client’s wife. A quartet of stories in which characters’ lives are changed by unusual sexual encounters, FOURPLAY frames desire through themes of connection, eroticism, shame, fear, love and spiritual healing. Executive produced by Michael Stipe and Jim McKay.
