Storyline

In London in the 1990s, a balding alcoholic with an unsteady American accent introduces himself in pubs and other social settings as Stanley Kubrick. Drinks and meals are suddenly on the house or paid for by an admiring person, usually a man, whose costumes, band, acting abilities or what have you, Stanley finds fascinating. He's actually Alan Conway (1934-1998): we watch him parlay a self-confident manner and a small amount of movie knowledge into a persona whom others immediately hang their dreams on. In exchange, Stanley asks only that they pay the bill. Will he be exposed? Do prosecution and prison await? Or has the National Health something else in mind? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

1st boy in bar: Of course,
[Kubrick]
1st boy in bar: left his calling card in 2001: A Space Odyssey. But none of us recognised it.
2nd boy in bar: 2001?
1st boy in bar: Yes. HAL, the computer. Camp as a row of tents. Positively Danny Debonair with that voice. That's why he killed the astronaut, wanted to be alone with the other beefcake.
2nd boy in bar: Oh. What's he working on now... Kubrick?
1st boy in bar: He's doing a remake of that Julie Christie film, 'Darling.' She's a boy this time. They wouldn't let John Schlesinger get away with *that* in the 1960s.
2nd boy in bar: Sounds captivating.
1st boy in bar: It is dear...

A masterful performance from Malcovich
13 June 2007 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Having just seen this movie, the most striking thing for me was how impressive Malcovich's performance was... that man can act. his accents were hilarious, his comic timing was impeccable, his blatant homosexuality was wonderful. it's really of this which carries the movie through, as the plot itself doesn't really have much substance to it. the entire film revolves around one character, and it is only really malcovich's character which gains any development at all, so it's just as well he does it well.

personally, i enjoyed the film immensely, but came away with a great appreciation of malkovich, rather than for the film itself.
