Color Me Kubrick: Now In Theaters and On DVD

Apparently, Color Me Kubrick, the "true...ish" story of a con man masquerading as Stanley Kubrick just came out in theaters last Friday. But in case you can't make it out of the house, the film also comes out this week on DVD!

According to IMDB, Color Me Kubrick (or sometimes, Colour-with-a-U Me Kubrick) first screened at France's Dinard Festival of British Cinema in October of 2005, and then at the Tribeca Film Festival the following April. Practically a year later, it's just now coming out in theaters — and on DVD. Strange, no?

In this slightly fictionalized version of a strange-but-true story, John Malkovich plays Alan Conway, a man who claims he is Stanley Kubrick and cons his way into receiving money, gifts, and sexual favors all over London. The scam victims refrain from pressing charges to avoid looking stupid and gullible. For more buzz on the movie and to watch the trailer,

The reviews have been scattered, with some critics saying it's worth seeing for the genius of Malkovich and others claiming the film is silly. Still, the movie offers plenty of inside jokes for die-hard Kubrick fans, and I happen to think it's pretty astonishing that so many "regular" people accepted the idea that the famous director would readily hang out with them. Ultimately, it seems that whether or not you like this film hinges on how much you love or hate John Malkovich. I'll probably catch it on DVD, but check out the trailer below and tell me what you think.

ooooh I want to see it! I love Kubrick (even though this isn't about him but someone pretending to be him) AND Malkovich.

I think Malkovich can be genius, but by the sounds of it, I'll wait for this one on the movie networks. Sounds like they were pumping it at all available film festivals and it just didn't make the grade. ------------------------------------------------------ "If men could only know each other, they would neither idolize nor hate" Elbert Hubbard
