Being John Malkovich

New this month Question: When I originally saw the film at the Midway Theater in Forest Hills, New York there were so many errors, I thought they were part of the movie. There was shaky cameras, boom mics shown in the frame, extras walking around, and lighting devices in frame. I’m not talking once or twice, it was throughout. I ended up leaving. Has anyone ever heard of this?

Question: Why are Dr Lester and his friends all planning to go into one mind? Surely they'd want to go into a mind on their own, otherwise they'd be just trapped in someone else's head. Something that Dr Lester was afraid of in the first place?

Chosen answer: Using John Malkovich extends their life. After Malkovich turns 44, the next portal is a newborn baby. So they couldn't, or didn't want to, wait for another mind to go into.

Question: Why does John Malkovich see all of the John Malkoviches, when entering his own mind?

Chosen answer: I think you just answered your own question! The answer isn't WHY does he see multiple Malkovich's but why not? Think about it. He's entered his OWN mind...what else would he see?
