During the months of very distant from the movie man - homo Alan Conway - disguised himself as one of the greatest filmmakers of his time - Stanley Kubrick. His gamble was extremely successful, although Conway did not even bothered by the fact that the study director's biography and find information about his habits, manner of communication and, of course, his films. He was, and apparently far from Kubrick, however, his talent to improvise and make a fool always brought him a profit and helped to convince not only ordinary people who want the expense of the well-known producer to build a career, but also the rich and famous to fall under the spell of a cunning rogue.

How he managed to set the identity of one of the greatest artists in cinema history? Who was this man really? On these and many other questions are answered in the movie itself.

The plot patterns "Being Stanley Kubrick» (Colour Me Kubrick) directed by Brian Cook went to the real story of the ingenious impostor, played by a talented and consummate actor John Malkovich. While Stanley Kubrick in all possible ways to avoid contact with the press and led a very secluded life, and this took the adventurer.

The film's producer, Michael Fitzgerald of the painting: "Being Stanley Kubrick" - a metaphorical tale of impersonation and the very essence of celebrity. Nowadays people have become famous not because of what they are doing or what they represent. Celebrity - it's just a status, a person receives. There is no reason why the coming glory. It's just a matter of status. "

Directed by Brian Cook admitted that doubts about the actor for starring film, he never was: 'John Malkovich was the first of whom I thought I read the script. Nobody would have played this role better than he. He is simply one of the best actors in the world. "

John Malkovich about his character: "I read an article about him in Vanity Fair and was impressed. First, the incredible story itself is so brazen appropriation of someone else's identity, and secondly, fabulous choice for this purpose such a complex personality and strong, like Stanley Kubrick.

In addition, the actor admitted that he was interested to learn of the Conway, his motivations and desires. He did this not only for the fact that the great role to play, but for my own curiosity and pleasure: "Attempts to explain Conway - an exciting experience. Like many others, Conway would not be who he was. He wanted to be respected, famous, mysterious. Alan was not mentally ill. If we recall the definition of a genius creator of Oscar Wilde, Alan Conway is suitable for him. He makes my life art. His actions, his strengths and weaknesses - all part of the art, which aims - to make life more interesting. "

John Malkovich about director Brian Cook: "Brian put his first film, and he dealt with task brilliantly. I met him when he was an assistant director, and he even then impressed me.
