Quite possibly the most FULL OF HIMSELF reviewer on IMDB ever.
I know... I know... It's hard to believe. But really... I think he's definitely in the running.

Not only does he discuss the entirety of every plot in every review, but I've spotted two uses of "hitchcock-ian" and a zeal for run on sentences.
His user name is Unemployed Critic.

About Adaptation's director, Spike Jonze (this is not a spoiler, does not reference plot or action in the movie in any way or it would be behind a cut. trust me) :
Jonze is a visualist, with an endless bag of tricks at his disposal to sell the images created by Kaufman. But that's where his talents end. It's easy to be charmed by Jonze's impish creativity, but I've yet to see the man tell a story that didn't involve shallow tricks, even in his long and industrious career as a music video director. Jonze and Kaufman are a match made in heaven, as Kaufman needs gimmicks to get through his stories, and Jonze needs the stories to sell some more gimmicks. It doesn't get any better than that. But with `Adaptation,' Kaufman is growing as a screenwriter, and taking more chances. And Jonze is still trying to skirt by with camera tricks and goofball sentimentality.

So really, fuck him right in the ass.
