||Synopsis: While his latest movie Being John Malkovich (1999) is in production, screenwriter Charlie Kaufman is hired by Valerie Thomas to adapt Susan Orlean's non-fiction book "The Orchid Thief" for the screen. Thomas bought the movie rights before Orlean wrote the book, when it was only an article in The New Yorker. The book details the story of rare orchid hunter John Laroche, whose passion for orchids and horticulture made Orlean discover passion and beauty for the first time in her life. Charlie wants to be faithful to the book in his adaptation, but despite Laroche himself being an interesting character in his own right, Charlie is having difficulty finding enough material in Laroche to fill a movie, while equally not having enough to say cinematically about the beauty of orchids. At the same time, Charlie is going through other issues in his life. His insecurity as a person doesn't allow him to act upon his feelings for Amelia Kavan, who is interested in him as a man. And Charlie's twin ... Written by Huggo

Watch Adaptation. - Alternative Versions.
The first time I saw "Adaptation" I expected something else and walked
away severely disappointed. As some of you out there who Private
Messaged me in regards to my initial review posted on IMDb might
already be aware, I originally gave it a rating of 3.5/5 stars, back
when I was frequently contributing to the site. I passed on without
much thought, considering it a disappointment and leaving my critique
for those who cared to read it.
It remains the single comment to have generated the most feedback for
me. More than "The Passion of the Christ," and more than yes, even my
upsetting review of 2003's "Peter Pan" (which seemed to anger the small
die-hard fanbase for the film that lurks on these message boards - by
the way, I've had to clarify this sentence by adding "for the film"
because someone PM'd me yesterday accusing me of implying I have a
fanbase on IMDb...no, I am referring to the film's fanbase, so please
hold off on the accusations). I digress. In summary I gave "Adaptation"
a negative rating and to my surprise, perhaps because I avoided totally
slamming the film, the fans responded to me with kind words rather than
harsh ones; conceivably they too had initially taken a dislike to the
film? I made a daring move. I bought "Adaptation" on DVD for ten bucks,
thinking, "I've got nothing to lose." Plus, the front cover looked cool
I watched it again (after taking into mind several themes and
self-referential layers I had failed to visualize before) and was blown
away by the originality and genius of the movie.
My hugest complaint regarding "Adaptation," originally, was its absurd
ending -- I felt it was out of place, silly, and totally
anti-climactic. Little did I realize this was the point -- to be a
parody of the typical Hollywood blockbuster.
There are so many underlying jokes, gags and self-references that the
film grows better -- like "Back to the Future" -- on each new viewing.
You're always finding new stuff.
I found new respect for Nicolas Cage as an actor after my second
viewing of this. I have always liked Cage despite the criticism he
receives for being a one-sided actor; here, he proves he's capable of
creating two very different human beings out of the same mold.
Brilliant, Oscar-worthy stuff.
All in all I got it wrong the first time. "Adaptation" isn't a film
that starts out clever and descends into a messy and stupid finish.
Well, actually, it is. But that's the point. I didn't get it before.
Now I do.
If you disliked this film, my advice? Watch it again. It knows a bit
more about itself than you probably do. And read up on the message
boards here a bit to get a clearer grasp of what's going on if you're
P.S. I'd like to thank all the people on this site who messaged me in
response to my review.
