Stanley Kubrick

'Moonwalkers' is a tired British comedy

'Moonwalkers' is a tired British comedy

A famously crackpot conspiracy theory, psychedelic humor and arty ultraviolence make for dreary bedfellows in the scattershot British comedy "Moonwalkers," set in swinging 1969 London. Ron Perlman plays Kidman, a grizzled, volatile American special-ops agent scarred by 'Nam flashbacks, who's tasked by a brash general to hire Stanley Kubrick, then a hot commodity due to "2001: A Space Odyssey," to film a fake moon landing in case the just-launched Apollo 11 goes bust.
