Charles Stewart Kaufman Wiki/Biography

Charles Stuart "Charlie" Kaufman (born November 19, 1958) is an American screenwriter, producer, director, and lyricist. He wrote or co-wrote the critically acclaimed films Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. He made his directing debut in 2008 with Synecdoche, New York, which was also well received; film critic Roger Ebert called it "the best movie of the decade" in 2009.Kaufman and his work are often praised for being highly original and imaginative: Being John Malkovich stars John Malkovich as a fictional version of himself, Human Nature is mostly told by flashbacks, Adaptation tells the story of Kaufman himself, trying to write the film itself and to understand the book from which it is adapted with the help of his twin brother Donald Kaufman (who was credited as a co-writer despite being a fictional character), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind mainly takes place in the mind of the main character while his memory is erased, and Synecdoche, New York is a postmodern film with many complex non-realistic elements.He has been nominated for three Academy Awards: twice for Best Original Screenplay for Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, winning the award for the latter, and Best Adapted Screenplay (with his fictional brother) for Adaptation. He also won two BAFTA Award for Best Original Screenplays, one BAFTA Award for Best Adapted Screenplay and a Saturn Award for Best Writing.

#Trademark
1His films often deal with themes of reality and identity
2Stories with bizarre plots that showcase a sense of fantasy in the real world.
3Scripts usually feature reluctant protagonists who start out in the story as downtrodden or self-doubtful, frustrated with life or love or their professions.
#Quote
1I don't know what the hell a third act is.
#Fact
1Worked alongside Stephen Colbert and Louis C.K. on the writing staff of The Dana Carvey Show (1996).
2Wrote an unproduced draft of A Scanner Darkly (2006).
3Has one daughter, Anna.
43 of the 5 movies he has penned so far are based around real people in fictional situations: Susan Orlean, John Laroche and himself in Adaptation. (2002), Chuck Barris in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002), John Malkovich in Being John Malkovich (1999) (obviously).
5Kaufman has a reputation for avoiding interviews with the media, but this is a fallacy, as demonstrated by the scores of interviews you can find online. He has rarely been interviewed on TV; he was interviewed by Charlie Rose at the end of March 2004, and by Stephen Colbert in December of 2008.
6Ranked #100 in Premiere's 2003 annual Power 100 List. He was the only writer on the list.
