The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
Floundering puppeteer Craig Schwartz (John Cusack) discovers a door into actor John Malkovich's mind in his new workplace and subsequently exploits the door for profit with the help of his co-worker and romantic obsession Maxine (Catherine Keener).
According to Garson, Spike Jonze ordered him to improvise the scene where he encounters Malkovich in the restaurant and to use the word "retard" as many times as he could. Starting with, "You were really great in that movie where you play that retard" which references his role as Lenny in Of Mice & Men (1992).
