Charlie Kaufman writes the way he lives... With Great Difficulty. His Twin Brother Donald Lives the way he writes... with foolish abandon. Susan writes about life... But can't live it. John's life is a book... Waiting to be adapted. One story... Four Lives... A million ways it can end.

Writting a film about yourself writting a film!? Charlie Kaufman is a genius! Certainly one of the most original screenwriters!
All of the actors gave fantastic performances. Meryl Streep and Chris Cooper are great but Nicolas Cage shines! That man just needs find more good stories and characters to star in!
It's so crazy, so clever and beautiful at the same time.
I'm getting some trouble about what to write more about this film without spoiling much.
If you haven't seen it yet do it!

Did Kaufman's brother Donald help Charlie by writing the end of the screenplay? I guess we'll never know
