The Secret Movie Club Team (Connor Lloyd Crews, Edwin Gomez, Daniel Ott, and Craig Hammill) enters the mind of skater-auteur Spike Jonze and his directorial debut, the darkly comic Being John Malkovich, written by Charlie Kaufman. BJM is one of Connor’s favorite films and he gushes about its existential horror and daring style! Edwin prefers Jonze’s follow-up Kaufman-collab, Adaptation. Craig admires his shorter work, including an Apple ad he made with FKA Twigs and his incredible music and skateboard videos. Daniel talks about how inspiring Jonze’s wild approach was to him as a young filmmaker!
