About the Movie
The story of Charlie Kaufman, a confused L.A. screenwriter overwhelmed by feelings of inadequacy, sexual frustration, self-loathing - and by the screenwriting ambitions of his freeloading twin brother Donald. While struggling to adapt "The Orchid Thief," a book by Susan Orlean, Kaufman's life spins from pathetic to bizarre. Orleans wants to know how it feels to care about something passionately as well - especially after witnessing the fervor of John Larouche, the orchid poacher and the subject of her book, as he scours the Florida swamps for rare species of the captivating flower. Their lives become strangely intertwined as each one's search for passion collides with the others.
Fantastic movie! The movie is about the scriptwriter writing the script for the movie. Done REALLY well! Highly recommended.
A simply amazing movie. I couldn't write a review that does justice to it's genius.
A strange film. Different.
