Unpersuasive, paceless, photographed in inky black-and-white most of the time and in jaundiced color for fifteen minutes, it's sort of a dim sophomore's idea of an "art film" ca. 1964. Actually -- not sort of -- it's Soderbergh's idea of one. Grey is like a duck taking to water as the official and officious office snitch; and a couple of curious chase scenes -- one involving a stalled elevator, the other a domelike magnifying lens -- enliven matters momentarily.

Steven Soderbergh sullies the name of Franz Kafka by directing this generic, mostly trite and sometimes laboriously quirky fictional script with the character of the great author as its protagonist. Jeremy Irons is tasked with portraying poor Kafka, Theresa Russell is degraded with the role of the fatalish "girl", and Ian Holm's talent is wasted playing a Bond villain. Watch Welles' The Trial or Gilliam's Brazil instead.

Some problems, such as Russell's accent (but hired at a moment's notice), and more significantly it all seems overly restrained, with inklings of horror but an inability or unwillingness to genuinely embrace the nightmarishness of Kafka. Nevertheless, still some interesting elements, a good cast, and numerous cinematic and literary references, including Martinez's THIRD MAN-esque hammer dulcimer-based score. Not what it might have been, perhaps, but still better than 98% of Hollywood product.

This movie never received much attention but I think it's intriguing and rewarding in its own nutball sort of way
