This film is a creative explosion!
A writers dream come true, to be able to explore the depths of its own mind and the discovery of scenarios filled with dreams, needs, emotions and fear.
All this is happening before the movie starts!
An amazing writing extravaganza! On one hand we have the screen writer and on the other we have the screen writer and his hidden self, that someone sleeping inside his brain slowly waking up… the amazing way we know lines blur between reality and fiction, bringing us back and forth all possible dimensions.
Adaptation is an instant classic, mind bending, truth bending.
The movie itself can generate a blog only about it (well that is an idea) all the philosophical implications are so intertwined and important even mentioning one theory now will definitely oblige me to develop a thesis and this could go long.
But that basic instinct of the film, of the writer and the way he looks at himself, of his writers block, of his brother and how he values him, and his fear to love and connect is there, repeatedly crashing against your beliefs, of what you know, and how many risks do you take… how far can you go.
But remember this is a movie where the movie is not so important!
I know this review could be a bit shallow but hey, I am open to go deeper on this topic, just drop me a line and we can start dissecting this movie.
Adaptation, If only I could have the brains to go there.
