John Malkovich is an actor with a long and thick filmography.

Like everybody else in pretty much every fields there are some ups and downs, but the man has been around for more than three decades, so that’s no surprise. He also has made movies that became instant classics and is not only a film actor but a stage one, and many more things. (like everybody else, I know), a website that broadcasts and keeps conferences, events, Q&A etc, just shared a video from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation from last February where Malkovich talks extensively about his career and work, including (but not limited to) his reaction to when he first read ‘Being John Malkovich’, the difference between stage acting and film acting, and hunger, success and failure.

One of the nice perks of is that they breakdown the video for you, so you can either watch it in its entirety, or go directly to the chapter that interests you. (see below)
