So much potential wasted in this awful folly.

What a remarkably grating film. Comes off like a vanity project for Malkovich, eager to indulge a wide variety of swishy accents (done badly on purpose for character accuracy?). The story is jokingly billed as being "true-ish," which makes me wonder just how many people were fooled by this con man and whether he really adopted personalities that were so wildly divergent from the demeanor one would expect from a man of Kubrick's obvious intellect. The director of "2001: A Space Odyssey" as a vapid, boozed-up queen? Seriously?

Trainspotters will enjoy the soundtrack (full of music repurposed from Kubrick films) and director Ken Russell's totally unexpected cameo as a far-gone asylum patient. Honor Blackman, Richard E. Grant, Robert Powell ("Mahler," "Tommy") and "Barry Lyndon"'s Marisa Berenson also turn up in wee roles.

Didn't know what to expect and found it interesting, but got a bit same-old-same-old with the one-trick premise. Worth seeing. [dvr 2011-10]

Film isn't great but Malkovich is.

Filme baseado na história de um triste burlão que se faz passar por Stanley Kubrick, em Inglaterra, por volta do tempo das rodagens de Eyes Wide Shut? (sem que isso importe para nada). Aqui estaria um filme com algum potencial cómico e satírico " isto se algu (C)m se tivesse lembrado de escrever qualquer coisa com a mínima piada ou carisma para aproveitar o mote. John Malkovich calça o papel de maluco com a convicção de um maluco, lá está, mas pouco ou nada consegue fazer para inverter o profundo aborrecimento que (C) acompanhar um filme brit com valores de produção e talento comparáveis aos de Spice World? (mas com homens de robes exóticos em vez de mulheres com vestidos justos). evidente que o Kubrick verdadeiro nem vê-lo (julgo que detestaria o filme) e muito menos os cameos de celebridades e inside people? que são tão importantes nestes filmes. Acredito que algumas pessoas devem ter fugido deste projecto como de uma doença má. A única salvação serão as músicas dos originais de Kubrick, mas isso podemos escutar num disco sem corrermos o risco de revirar os olhos a cada vez que um Malkovich desesperado tenta fazer faísca com uma piada p (C)ssima desde logo sabotada pelo tom de voz verdadeiramente insuportável.

Malkovich gives a brilliant performance as always, and the touches of Kubrick added to the film give it an air of brilliance. However there's not much beneath the surface causing the film to lack any sort of depth making it less gratifying than it could have and should have been.

theatrical, witty, flamboyant and tart-ish....very cute and giggly in its own way. you can definitely tell this movie was Malkovich's brand new toy to play with, and if you like him, you'll find it very amusing.

Malkovich is awesome in the role and the story is really interesting. The problem is that the film switches styles about 3-4 different times. What was with the news paper editor breaking the 4th wall? Was he the narrator and if so why did he start narrating in the mdidle of the movie?

This movie was like hearing a great band play the same song for 90 minutes.

Color Me Kubrick has less of a plot than a series of vignettes featuring Malkovich conning strangers into thinking he's Stanley Kubrick. These vignettes always end with Malkovich leaving these strangers in a state of confusion and anger, with very little variation. In fact, one would assume that a bad film such as this would at least have some decent acting by its lead, but even Malkovich's admirable effort is wasted due to the terrible script that has absolutley no narrative arc whatsoever. Avoid at all costs.

Color Me Kubrick advertises itself as a comedy, but there are very few laughs to be found here. It's a wonderful premise and John Malkovich is fantastic in it, but the overall movie falls very flat. Oddly, the central plotline of trying to bring Conway down isn't enough to carry the movie and it ends up relying on the vignettes, which would be more interesting if it wasn't largely the same story over and over with not enough variation. Disappointing.

It's not bad inasmuch as a bit pointless.

I expected to love this movie. One of my favorite actors, John Malkovich playing a Stanley Kubrick imposter. How can it go wrong? Well, it did. Boring unfunny garbage. Basically the same thing would happen over and over. He would meet a new person, say he was Kubrick and then they would find out he was a conman after being duped for a few days. The only good thing about this movie was the showcase of all Kubricks classic music scores.

John Malkovich is a great actor, but the movie goes in circles the entire time.

This was pretty boring, kinda weird. Not very many details either. It's only redeeming quality is that it has John Malkovich... he's all that kept me watching, proving once again that a brilliant actor can make the biggest piece of crap entertaining in some way.
