John Malkovich's Eyes requires a big-budget adaptation for the big screen. What I like about this movie is its screenplay and the story which is so admirable. I do not like the casting and the locations at all, it's all wrong, I prefer to close my eyes and just listen to it, like it is a radio play or something because the sentences, the dialoges are so perfect and wonderful, let your own imagination portray the images and the atmosphere and the characters. I do feel pity for Lady Venalie, she was such an unfortunate lady but this does not make me hate Armuk Yurgun, He is bloody cool. Just for the sake of the novel ,I'd give it a 9.
