I have seen four of the five films for which he penned the script, and I must say that he is one of the most talented screenwriters writing today.

My favourites are (in order):

1. Being John Malkovich
2. Adaptation
3. Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind
4. Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

Which is your favourite?

I've only seen Adaptation out of all of these so I'm going with that.

It is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I really like his other work, but everything is absolutely right about that script - he's got all his clever way of doing things in, and made a film that makes sense, makes you think a bit more and thanks to Michel Gondry, is beautiful.

It's a very close call be ESOTSM and Being John Malkovich.  While Spotless mind is a broader themed film, with a uniqe idea behind it and is leyered, for Malkovich just takes it as it more subtre in combering elments of different genres, in trending the fine line between light and dark, fantasy and real life.  Plus it has one hell of a idea behind it too.

Malkovich.

Once you figure out what's going on Eternal Sunshine's a bit cloying. Malkovich is a gift that keeps on giving. Adaptation is very clever in an existentialist way too.

I have not seen Human Nature & Confessions of a dangerous mind, But out of the others its a tough choice because I absolutley love all three...they are easily three of my favourite films.
But I'll go with

ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND
BEING JOHN MALKOVICH
ADAPTATION
