Under the Radar
The Color of Time serves as a reminder that literalizing and adapting poetry for the screen is usually not a good idea.

"The Color of Time" is an odd bird in that its 12 cooks don't necessarily spoil the broth. The problem is that they leave it as broth.

Either Franco thinks his every creative whim doesn't stink, and we should be delighted to sample all his artistic endeavors, or he's a selfless, mentoring, caring teacher.

The uniformity of its languorous, lens-flared visuals may wear on all but the most ardent Terrence Malick devotees, many of whom, I suspect, are also grad students.

Movie Chambers
This dreamlike film, directed by twelve graduate students from New York University, fails to make celebrated American poet C.K. Williams much more than a mildly interesting daydream. Despite its top acting talent, it even inspires a deeper sleep.

The Film Stage
The idea of students collaborating with a stable of famous actors is a wonderful story in itself, but to then treat the culmination of the exercise as more than a student thesis film does it a disservice.

"The Color of Time," for all the experimentalism of its conception, falls some way short here, and ends up an irreproachably tasteful, easily digestible, but an unsurprising, undemanding watch.

Probably should have stayed in the classroom.

Franco makes a lot of art, both good and bad. But no one provides a bolder example of the vanishing lines that used to separate movie stars, fringe artists, and working actors.

Based on Pulitzer Prize-winning poet C.K. Williams's autobiographical work, "The Color of Time" is about poetry, though it has none to speak of.

New York Times
The film is too sincere an expression of admiration for this poet's work to feel pretentious, but it's like a music video for the poems, often literal in its biographical readings.

A cool concept, and A for effort.
