I just finished watching Adaptation (IMDb, official, weblog) and had to jump onto the internet to see what was going on. I started reading this thread and felt it summed up the movie pretty well. Some people love it, some people hate it; it’s brilliant and it’s crap. Everything all rolled into one and each to his own getting what they can out of it. I was laughing throughout the last half of the film, laughing at him doing everything that he said he wasn’t going to do. I thought it was brilliant writing, but I’m a sucker for multilayered self-indulgent stories about people trying to write a story. And it was entirely self-indulgent which is where a lot of the humour lies. It’s worth checking out, deffinitely one of the better movies that I’ve seen recently.
