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>

A misunderstood funny film
4 February 2006 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

I was expecting to see this film for a long time because of the appearance of one of my favorite actors, Robert Powell. When it was released in France this film got many bad critics that nearly stopped me to see this film. I've seen it and now I'm 100% sure that French film critics are stupid and have nothing in their brains.

This film is a fine comedy, but if you laugh with typical American comedy, then you won't find it comic. And people forget that this film is about Alan Conway, NOT Stanley Kubrick! This guy (Conway) just posed as Kubrick, that's all. People who think that the view of the director is to show that Kubrick was homosexual are stupid and blind or simply didn't see the film!! So please understand that this film is ABOUT the guy who posed as Kubrick, THIS IS NOT A FILM ABOUT KUBRICK HIMSELF!!

So the film is OK, I spent a good evening and was pleased to see Robert Powell as the journalist with the nice voice. The cast was excellent, but to me Malkovich overacted and had a disturbing and nasty accent most of the time.
