Color Me Kubrick Reviews
Decent performance by John Malkovich in the lead role, though he didn't have to try too hard - seemed like every performance he has ever made.
And no, this isn't strictly for Stanley Kubrick fans. I am a fan and was disappointed. The movie is about a Stanley Kubrick impersonator, not the man himself, so really has nothing to do with Stanley Kubrick himself.
Bryan Adams's Song Had Given That Film So Much .
The character is very un-appealing, not nice at all & doesn't have an ounce of sympathy. The direction is very poor & the costumes, colors, & sets pretty cheap. It looked like a casual tv movie with a good lead actor period. In the hands of some much more talented director this story could have been a tremendous circus of a story , Malkovich should definitely be a little more careful with his choices of films.... but i guess he's at a stage where he doesn't care about anything anymore...
VERDICT: "In The Zone" - [Mixed Reaction] These kinds of movies are usually movies that had some good things, but some bad things kept it from being amazing. This rating says buy an ex-rental or a cheap price of the DVD to own. If you consider cinema, ask for people's opinion on the film. (Films that are rated 2.5 or 3 stars)
It's pretty terrible. Kubric been one of the most crazy weird directors of all-time could possibly be insulted rocking on his grave because of this crap of a so called movie. If your fan of John Malkovich see it but just as fan because the plot is just ridiculous.
In London in the 1990s, a balding alcoholic with an unsteady American accent introduces himself in pubs and other social settings as Stanley Kubrick. Drinks and meals are suddenly on the house or paid for by an admiring person, usually a man, whose costumes, band, acting abilities or what have you, Stanley finds fascinating. He's actually Alan Conway (1934-1998): we watch him parlay a self-confident manner and a small amount of movie knowledge into a persona whom others immediately hang their dreams on. In exchange, Stanley asks only that they pay the bill. Will he be exposed? Do prosecution and prison await? Or has the National Health something else in mind?
