Critic Reviews for The Color of Time
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.
"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.
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.
Franco makes a lot of art, both good and bad. But no one provides a bolder example of the vanishing lines that used to separate movie stars, fringe artists, and working actors.
Audience Reviews for The Color of Time
Some nice direction and mood, but the film is dull and iy never gives us a reason to see why poet C.K. Williams deserves to have a movie made about him.
It feels like a collective effort to mock Terrence Malick, which is ironic, because it would've been better had he directed it.
A mosaic hazy view at the various facets of the poet C.K.'s Williams life and motivations. An admirable attempt to bring (read) poetry to cinema, but on a tired workday the nuances of the cinematic-soft-focus and textual imagery were mostly lost on me.
