Of All The Original Film's Madnesses, This Provides Its Largest Measure Of Satiric Wit.
11 February 2006 | by rsoonsaSee all my reviews

This very brief piece, one of numerous special features offered with a Universal DVD version of the Spike Jonze original film, includes most of a segment seen during the final portion of the work, a simulation of a promotional lure targeting a television audience, its purpose being to advertise the newly developed puppetry skills of "former" actor John Malkovich, a hilarious sequence that furnishes cameos of Sean Penn, Brad Pitt, and others. It is arguably the most incisive satiric footage within the entire feature film, achieving a correct balance of stridency and vigour required for most such puffery. The titular dance of Despair and Disillusionment refers to something else entirely, however, in accord with the wildly incongruous ingredients of the entire film; in this instance choreography created by marionette manipulator Craig Schwartz (John Cusack) and later physically restated by John Malkovich playing himself, none of which appears in this section.
