Criterion Commentaries: “Being John Malkovich”

Nicholas Vargo

My name is Nicholas Vargo and I live in La Mesa, California, a suburb of San Diego. Even though the amount of movies I have seen might not show it completely, I am one of the biggest movie buffs out there - even though I know I still have many, many movies out there that I need to see. Still, my love of movies remain the backbone of my life. I have a BA in English from ASU and am currently looking for new work opportunities. Some of the other things I like to do in my spare time are playing Wii and even something as simple as organizing my movie collection. I hope to one day become a published film critic - if the job title is still available. You can find me on Flickchart as NicholasVargo, so feel free to add me as a friend if you like.

    You know, it’s been a while since I saw “Being John Malkovich”.  I remember thinking that while the film was innovative and well done, it left me with a skeezy feeling that I didn’t enjoy very much.  I also recall finding the ultimate fate of Cusack’s character to be unnecessary cruel, given that he’s no more an asshat than anyone else in the film.  Maybe someday I’ll revisit it, especially if it shows up on my Netflix queue.

    I haven’t seen Malkovich in a long time, but now you’ve got me thinking I need to pick up the Criterion when it comes out.  1999 was a really amazing year for movies.
