    Both deeply weird and charmingly dear.

    The characters are much less finely tuned and the climax is a botch, but the French-financed film is often a riot, and the sensibility is all there.

    The movie has nowhere much to go and nothing much to prove, except that Stephen King is correct and if you can devise the right characters and the right situation, the plot will take care of itself -- or not, as the case may be.

    The second movie by "Being John Malkovich" writer Charlie Kaufman is even weirder than his first.
  5. 50
    The best stuff in Human Nature comes early, while the movie is still spry and daring --Then the film runs out of ideas, repetition sets in and so does boredom.
  6. The movie never gets off the ground. Kaufman's script is never especially clever and often is rather pretentious.

    It's hard to describe this movie without spoiling it, however i can say that if you only like serious movies then you might not like this.It's hard to describe this movie without spoiling it, however i can say that if you only like serious movies then you might not like this. This movie is the worst of Kaufman's movies, but it is still better than most movies out there. Expand

    I love Charlie Kaufman movies (even Synecdoche, New York) however, I thought this was too clever for it's own good.Rhys Ifans is the best partI love Charlie Kaufman movies (even Synecdoche, New York) however, I thought this was too clever for it's own good.Rhys Ifans is the best part of the movie. This movie is almost always intriguing, whether it's character interaction, dialogue or just something visually amusing. However, there were a lot of slow spots and by the end, I felt like it was kind of a pointless movie unlike his other works, Forgettable, but not bad. Expand
