Spike Jonze Double Feature!
BEING JOHN MALKOVICH / THREE KINGS
35 mm!
20th Anniversary!

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.

THREE KINGS
1999, Warner Bros., 114 min, Dir: David O. Russell

This virtuoso blend of action, drama and comedy stars George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg and Ice Cube (along with noted director Spike Jonze in his acting debut) as soldiers in the waning days of the Gulf War. Discovering a map to stolen Kuwaiti gold, the men set off to steal it for themselves, only to wind up caught between Iraqi loyalists and rebels. Largely shot on transparency stock processed in color negative chemicals, THREE KINGS has a visual style that's as striking as its caustic take on warfare.
