I wandered on down to Tinseltown today to catch ‘Adaptation’ finally. And all I can say is ‘whaaaa?’. I don’t know yet whether it’s genius or cop-out. One, of course, suspects the former, being who it is. But like any far-too-self-aware meta-work, there’s always that suspicion that maybe the self-references and self-awareness is really someone going ‘I don’t know what to do, so I guess I’ll say that’, which, in yet another level of this film, is what is going on this film.
But go see it. Really. Unless you don’t like movies that aren’t straightforward.
