Color Me Kubrick

THEY WANTED SOMETHING FOR NOTHING. HE GAVE THEM NOTHING FOR SOMETHING.Ā 

In 1999, Stanley Kubrick’s assistant Anthony Frewin became intrigued by Alan Conway, a man who had been impersonating the famous director for years and conned a lot of men out of money and sexual favors. In the end, Frewin wrote a script, which was turned into this film by another Kubrick collaborator, Brian Cook. The result is a very amusing but thin account of Conway’s escapades, cleverly set to music from Kubrick’s films, and starring John Malkovich in a deliciously flamboyant performance as the enigmatic con artist. Jim Davidson is also fun as a singer hoping to score in Vegas.

2007-France-Britain. 86 min. Color. Directed byĀ Brian Cook. Screenplay: Anthony Frewin. Cast: John Malkovich (Alan Conway), Jim Davidson (Lee Pratt), Richard E. Grant (Jasper), Luke Mably, Marc Warren, Terence Rigby… Honor Blackman, Ken Russell.

Trivia: Alternative title: Color Me Kubrick: A True…ish Story. Co-executive produced by Luc Besson. David Hemmings was considered for a role. Several songs on the soundtrack are co-written by Bryan Adams.
