The filmmakers opted for a more episodic structure (with the occasional flashback) and I do have to say that by the end of the 90 minutes, I was growing weary of the shtick.

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

But cleverness aside, the film is so slight it practically vanishes before your eyes.

Kubrick stumbles around with eyes wide shut.

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

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.

After its promising, hilarious setup, Cook's initial Kubrick-like smoothness quickly gives way to a ramshackle presentation with few follow-up ideas or jokes.

The decision to execute the story as a kind of extended meta-sitcom -- a series of set-ups without the tidy resolution -- feels like a cheat.

Malkovich's playing to the rafters is certainly amusing, but the film can't shake off its Borscht Belt by way of Britain lineage and its failure to dig beneath the surface.

You can almost see the invective splattering all over the storyline. And Malkovich's camping and vamping, however perversely entertaining it is to behold, can neutralize the venom only so much.

Once the movie gets started, it doesn't know where to go or how to end. It more or less repeats itself.

The movie never convinces us there's anyone there to expose, though, and Malkovich flits from scene to scene without ever anchoring Conway in a lasting reality.

Great fun for the first 20 minutes but seems long at 86.

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

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.

A shapeless, low-grade comedy of flamboyance, giggling at Conway's histrionics and fishnet gloving.

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.

a playground for madman Malkovich to be set loose in.

The script evinces no interest in the psychology of its main character.

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.
