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>

Alan Conway: Oh! Jasper, I'm so touched. You are too kind.
Jasper: I'm so pleased that *you* are pleased.
Alan Conway: Look at it! It's wonderful... do you have the receipt?

A wonderful film,,,,,,,,,
28 April 2007 | by marvinbluthSee all my reviews

I saw the trailer for this twice in a theater, and was truly underwhelmed. Although I LOVE Kubrick, and I read the original article over ten years ago, the trailer turned me off, so much so, I had no desire to see the film. It opened and closed in Los Angeles, one theater, one week, which is not a good omen. Then I rent it,,,,,,,,,, IT"S GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's a really funny, very clever film, about how people would want to believe this guy, and do anything to get close to him, all because they love Kubrick and his films. I've read some really nasty criticisms, that make no sense to me. No, there's no explosions, no special effects, no incredible fight scenes, no car chase, there's just a wonderful little story based on real life, that's great. RENT THIS,,,,,,OR BUY IT!!!!!!
