Before he detailed the romance between a man and an OS, or took you where the Wild Things were, Spike Jonze decided to get into the head of John Malkovich. Time flies, but it has been 15 years since the brilliant and bizarre “Being John Malkovich” hit theaters, so today we’re going to take you behind the scenes.
Featuring longitme collaborator Lance Bangs, and cast members John Cusack, Catherine Keener, Cameron Diaz, and, of course, John Malkovich, the footage is a bit scattershot, but gives a sense of what shooting the oddball, Charlie Kaufman-penned picture was like, not only for those in front of the camera, but for the crew too. It’s actually a pretty great dip into what it took to get inside Malkovich’s brain, at least on set, and if you’re of the film and filmmakers, it’s worth perusing. Check it out below, along with a couple of extras, including Jonze’s wacky appearance on “The Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn.”
