"The Great Buck Howard" at Maiden Alley Cinema
By Todd Hatton
Paducah, KY – The name "John Malkovich" and the word "quirky" may be tailor-made for one another, but the southern Illinoisan (he's from Christopher, 20 miles outside Carbondale) never fails to bring a humanity to his roles, no matter how odd. Malkovich gets to indulge his comedic chops in the film, "The Great Buck Howard," with Colin Hanks.
