  • Kubrick's Next Successful And Controversial Film
    1,690 words
    'I would not think of quarreling with your interpretation nor offering any other, as I have found it always the best policy to allow the film to speak for itself. ' (Stanley Kubrick) As one of the most widely acclaimed and influential directors of the postwar era, Stanley Kubrick enjoyed a reputation and a standing unique among the filmmakers of his day. He had a brilliant career with relatively few films. An outsider, he worked beyond the confines of Hollywood, which he disliked, maintaining co...
  • Kubrick And Lynch
    2,558 words
    The American cinema is rich with powerful and insightful filmmakers whose bodies of work add to the legacy of American filmmaking. But a few filmmakers like Stanley Kubrick and David Lynch, two of the most enlightening and illuminating directors to ever grace the silver screen, not only add to but create entirely new possibilities for the American and global cinema. These auteurs are separated from other filmmakers because of their profound sense of creativity and individuality. There is no mist...
  • Most Disturbing Sequences Of The Film
    1,907 words
    The true measure of success for any film lies in its ability to establish a relationship with its audience. Perhaps more than in any other genre, the horror film must be aware of this relationship and manage it carefully. After all, the purpose of a horror film is not necessarily to invoke thought, but rather to evoke an emotional reaction from its audience. Horror films of all types have used frightening images, disturbing characters, and thrilling sequences to inspire fear. Within the genre, "...
  • Kubrick's The Shining
    2,597 words
    Stanley Kubrick's The Shining (1980) initially received quite a bit of negative criticism. The film irritated many Stephen King fans (and King himself) because it differed so greatly from the novel. The Shining also disappointed many filmgoers who expected a conventional slasher film. After all, Kubrick said it would be "the scariest horror movie of all time". 1 Kubrick's films, however, never fully conform to their respective genres; they transcend generic expectations. In the same way that 200...

    1,217 words
    Kubrick Lives The theory of authorship as applied to film directors is a subject that is argued extensively throughout the film world. The auteur theory was first introduced in the French film journal Cahiers du Cinema. Andrew S arris who suggested that there are a group of filmmakers who fit into this category brought the theory to America. It states that in order for a director to be considered an auteur, there must be a consistency of style and theme across a number of films. Very few contemp...
  • Kubrick's Movie
    1,695 words
    It is easy to look into the eyes of a motion picture and dissect it for its form, style, underlying meanings, and other characteristics that separate it from a film and a classic. There are concrete elements that can be found in all classics that make it such a powerful and remarkable work. One of these elements is undoubtedly the concept of the auteur theory. The Auteur theory is described as a filmmaker, usually a director, who exercises creative control over his or her works and has a strong ...
  • Stanley Kubrick

    Stanley Kubric was one of the great filmmakers, died in his bed of a heart attack on Sunday morning, March 7th 1999. When I first heard the report, I blinked twice in disbelief. It just seemed WAY too soon to bid good-bye to Stanley. Somehow, he was one of those people you get to think will always be there. And it's appealing to have known all these years that up there in Hertfordshire, he was working away on some new project or other. SOMEone had been doing something new and special. After all,...
  • Viewer Into The Film
    1,409 words
    Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, directed by Stanley Kubrick, is a classic film depicting, with much humor and irony, the strain and tension that the cold war wrought on America and the world. There are many aspects that make this film the work of art that it is, and, perhaps most importantly, they come together brilliantly to create something truly memorable. All of the facets of any good film are exemplary here and these include not only the characterizatio...
  • Kubrick's Last Film
    460 words
    I am a BIG fan of Stanley Kubrick, and it's a shame that we won't be able to witness another Kubrick film. What he contributed to film could hardly be put into words; he was simply a genius. His name is right up there with Hitchcock and Scorsese as far as milestone directors who revolutionized film. Kubrick's last film, 'Eyes Wide Shut', is a suitable and triumphant end to his illustrious career; it is misunderstood, quite ambiguous, controversial and different from anything you'd see. The usual...
  • Kubrick's Film To Best Picture
    3,256 words
    "A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later" (Stanley Kubrick) Director Stanley Kubrick was born within the confines of New York on the 26th of July 1928. The son of a physician, he began his career at the relatively young age of 16 when he began working as a freelance photographer for Look Magazine. Around this time the growing in confidence teenager found...
  • Kubrick's Movies
    1,324 words
    According to Wendy Carlos, Stanley Kubrick was "a demanding, even obsessive person of great depth who is trying to find the optimum answer for the smallest decision, however much time and effort it takes". His movies demonstrate a well thought out array of military and anomalistic reactions, which stem from the hardships life throws us. Whether those hardships stem from pressures a higher-ranking official exhibits, as was depicted in, Paths of Glory; or the mental pressure exhibited on the human...
