Critic Reviews for The Color of Time

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (20)

  • Based on Pulitzer Prize-winning poet C.K. Williams's autobiographical work, "The Color of Time" is about poetry, though it has none to speak of.

    December 12, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • "The Color of Time" is an odd bird in that its 12 cooks don't necessarily spoil the broth. The problem is that they leave it as broth.

    December 11, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The film is too sincere an expression of admiration for this poet's work to feel pretentious, but it's like a music video for the poems, often literal in its biographical readings.

    December 11, 2014 | Full Review…
  • A cool concept, and A for effort.

    December 11, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • "The Color of Time," for all the experimentalism of its conception, falls some way short here, and ends up an irreproachably tasteful, easily digestible, but an unsurprising, undemanding watch.

    December 11, 2014 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • You couldn't possibly find a more "James Franco" project, produced by and starring James Franco, than The Color of Time, even if you tried.
