Adaptation.

While my parents were visiting, we also went to see Adaptation. Most of our party were thoroughly unimpressed by this movie. Since we saw it, I have read some reviews that talk about it as a brilliant film. I fall down somewhere in between.

I thought the self-referential nature of the script was a very cool. I have always enjoyed complex story structures. Ultimately, though I think that the movies conclusion was just a little too movie insider focused for me to enjoy.

Before seeing the movie, I heard that Nicholas Cage's performance as twin brothers was amazing. I appreciated the performance, but wasn't blown away by it.

If you like weird or quirky movies, you might enjoy it. I was just slightly dissatisfied with the film as a whole. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it an 80.
