Colour Me Kubrick is a marginal curiosity that survives on a whiff of appropriation.

It's simply not a movie, not as it stands. It's a five-minute demo reel stretched to feature length.

Any picture featuring a sped-up version of the "William Tell Overture" is so drunk on its own whimsy that it most likely sucks with a dedicated vigour.

Malkovich captures not only the nuttiness of Conway, with his smorgasbord of foreign-sounding accents, but also his pathos.

Conway looked and sounded nothing like Kubrick and didn't even research his supposed identity. He's clearly a fascinating character who deserves a better movie.

Not only is there nothing there, the nothingness is a complete bore. When a film's highpoint is a soundtrack that relies heavily on other soundtracks, you've got problems.

The irony of Color Me Kubrick is that the visual tricks merely serve as a backdrop for Malkovich's inspired high-wire performance.

A little bit like a coloring book -- flip the pages and each is pretty much like the one before, escalating variations on the same scam, with Malkovich filling in the cartoonish shadings, and occasionally going way outside the lines.

It literally only has one idea in its head, and when that idea runs dry, it's as lost as Conway is without his plethora of Kubrick masks.

It's an impressive moving wax museum, certainly, but even metatextual follies eventually need a pulse.

At best a kitschy Catch Me If You Can and at worst a tedious comedy.

Director Brian W. Cook should know that hopes are seldom high for movies that debut on DVD the same day they hit the multiplex.

Fans of John Malkovich will most appreciate Colour Me Kubrick. For the rest, this is an amusing little blip on the movie radar screen.

Even if the film is essentially a one-man show, a one-man show starring John Malkovich is bound to be really damn good.

John Malkovich has a blast, so will you!

One Guy's Opinion

[A] loopy lark...the sheer goofiness of the premise, together with its gossipy 'insider' nature [and] the take-no-prisoners performance of John Malkovich...carry it along.

It's no 'Six Degrees of Separation' but Malkovich charms the audience as much as his marks, making this solid sit-com entertainment

If you're a fan of Stanley Kubrick or just a die-hard film buff, you may find this weird, semi-documentary an absolute hoot. I did.

Kubrick stumbles around with eyes wide shut.
