Bonjour, Voilý si longtemps que j'attendais ce jour, de pouvoir enfin vous Ècrire ou vous rencontrer. Et c'est gr’ce ý l'Internet que cela est possible. Quel siËcle! Je me souviens encore de cet aprËs-midi de 1969, dans ce petit village d'Allevard-les-Bains, au cúur des Alpes franÁaises, o˜ je viens tout juste de voir "2001, l'OdyssÈe de l'espace". Ce fšt un choc Èmotionnel sans prÈcÈdent et j'ai tout de suite pensÈ que vous Ètiez un rÈalisateur hors pair et un prÈcurseur. J'ai moi-mÍme fais des films de court mÈtrage... http://perso.club-internet.fr/tassanb ... et j'ai longtemps ÈtÈ imprÈgnÈ par votre faÁon de traiter la lumiËre, de recourir ý des plans sÈquences avec travellings arriËres interminables. Je suis un assidu de votre filmographie en particulier 2001, Orange mÈcanique... Bravo!!! Pour cette vision impressionniste, dÈroutante et d'avangarde, pour toute la soliditÈ et la densitÈ intÈrieure de votre art il y a nÈcessitÈ de voir plusieurs fois vos films. Et aussi pour savourer, dÈguster, distiller ce savant mÈlange de technologie et de mÈtaphysique. J'ai bien remarquÈ cette allusion ý la crÈation de l'homme, rÈfÈrence ý la fresque de Michel-Ange sur le plafond de la chapelle Sixtine, dans cette scËne de 2001 o˜ les singes touchent le monolithe noir (crÈateur). En faisant ce geste mytique, il deviennent hommes. J'ai ÈtÈ fascinÈ par cette perception du monde dans laquelle vous installez l'homme dans sa quÍte de la survie ou du devenir, qu'il soit rÈvolte (Spartacus, Les sentiers de la gloire, Orange MÈcanique) ou voyage (2001). Avez-vous pensÈ ý une úuvre sur la vie du Christ? J'attends avec impatience le prochain film! -- 01/04/99

And would someone explain to me why herr Kubrick hasn't been blasted for PLAGARIZING several scenes from "The Boys in Company C" for "Full Metal Jacket"? Jeezus - R Lee Ermey is even in both movies... it's no coincidence. -- 01/04/99

I was 13 when I went to see 2001 for the first time in 1968. Here we are at the new "Dawn" and I hope the spirit of wonder and recognition of our place in the grand universe ( as portrayed in Contact) can be realized again. We have lost the sense of purpose that existed in the tumultuous year of 1968. Paul. -- 01/05/99

The Killing is one of the best heist films ever made, inspiring Reservoir Dogs, among many others. 2001: A Space Odyssey is a complete mind-fuck and blew my head of. The Shining, Full Metal Jacket and A Clockwork Orange are also the work of a genius, is there no stopping this man??? Totally an erratic genius and a great recluse. lets hope the skull-king goes on for much longer Thanks for listening -- 01/06/99

Your website is truly impressive, in its depth of research and its links to the Criterion Collection of images. These, and your own site's images I download and use as backgrounds for my e-mail messages to friends and family. My Mother used to point out Kubrick's photo shoots in Look magazine to me when I was a boy, and I've been a fan ever since. I find Kubrick and Ridley Scott to be similar in style, that is emphasizing the visual image at times to the detriment of the story. Unlike most of your other correspondents, I find Kubrick's films merely great looking rather than "great." He could pick up a few pointers from the films of David Lean, also a visual artist but one with that certain, extra sensitivity to the story the image seeks to underscore. In that regard, I believe these two great directors are polar opposites on the question of script and image, but what they do have in common, with Scott as a lesser light in the Kubrick camp, is an extreme respect for the impact of the filmed form. I am also very eager to see EWO, and am hopeful that AI will be completed within the next five years. -- 01/07/99

I have seen numerous amounts of Kubrick pages, but I hated them all. The Kubrick Multimedia Film Guide is so informative and interesting that I visit at least once a week. I love all the Kubrick movies I have seen: A Clockwork Orange, Lolita, The Killing, 2001:A Space Odessey, Dr. Strangelove, and The Shining. Whenever I want to find information on those movies and progress on others, such as Eyes Wide Shut and AI, I always check the Kubrick Multimedia Film Guide.

Excellent job! This Kubrick site is definetely the one which every Kubrick fan should add to his favourites. I was fascinated the very first time (and still am) when I took a glimpse at all the information you offer for Kubrick fans. I am a devoted moviegoer and Kubrick is THE diretor who impressed me most, although I have not seen all of his films yet. 2001: A Space Odessey has had a great impact on me. Unfortunately, as I was born in '78, I am not among the very lucky poeple who could enjoy '2001' on the big screen in '68. Never-the-less, I can now enjoy it on DVD. I just hope that Criterion is about to release a DVD version of '2001' since the MGM release is a little bit disappointing concerning the 'special features'. If you get information about a Criterion release, let me know! Special Thanks to the 'Kubrick Multimedia Film Guide' Staff. You owe my respect. Your site is an absolute 'must' for Kubrick fans. GREAT JOB! -- 01/17/99

John Wood (jwood@magnais.co.uk) wrote:
The excitement mounts at the prospect of a new work from Kubrick for the first time in 12 years. "Eyes Wide Shut" being possibly his penultimate film. I look forward to experiencing this work, rather than just viewing as is the case with the mediocrity, that occupy the multiplexes. Notwithstanding, the inevitable disappointment that the "film reviewers" will bestow upon this work, as was the case with "Full Metal Jacket", this work will surely engage the brain, and challenge the audience in many ways, like no other contemporary release. As always with Kubrick's films the drama being expressed visually, powerfully exploiting the language of film,. Whatever the verdict on "Eyes Wide Shut", it will not be mediocre or depressingly formulaic. Kubrick is surely the last remaining Auteur still working within the mainstream, all others deceased or in retirement. Viva Kubrick. -- 02/23/99

What a beautiful site - the layout, color scheme, and of course content, are all very nice. My Kubrick contact is limited to being able to say someone from my high school back in the suburbs of Chicago was Animal Mother (?) in "Full Metal Jacket". Whoo hoo - his name is Adam and I think he was also in "My Bodyguard." I'm sure fans have heard it all here. I also like the story of how Kubrick wanted to meet with James Cameron. And how Cameron was so excited. Then SK just picked his brains about "Titanic" so he could be up to date and was like, okay, nice meeting you, bye. I have a website about YA and children's author M.E. Kerr and Mary James. I hope interested parties will visit! -- 02/25/99

JAMES HOWARD (jameshoward@lineone.net) wrote:
A - No there doesn't seem to be anything like an autobiography of Stanley Kubrick likely now or any time - not surprising, given his reluctance to give too much of a personal nature away over the past forty years. However - you may be interested to hear that there is a fine new book on the way (probably June/July) called 'The Stanley Kubrick Companion' which gives a complete and thorough rundown of his career right up to date. Those who have seen extracts from it say it is the most balanced book on the man so far - unlike the John Baxter hatchet-job of last year (at least one person interviewed for the Baxter book now has serious misgivings about the way he was portrayed in the finished text). The new book aims to refute most of the myths and rumours surrounding Kubrick and present him as, in James B Harris' words, 'a regular guy'. In case you're wondering, I am the author of this book, so I may be slightly biased..... Anyway, it's out to coincide with the release of 'Eyes Wide Shut' - sometime this century !!!!!!!!!!! -- 03/05/99

During the past twenty years, I have made a number of low-budget, independent films with my friend and business partner, James Lane. Stanley Kubrick has been, for me, the greatest of all cinema artists. When I first viewed "2001: A Space Odyssey" in the old Warner's Cinerama theater in July, 1968, I was forever transformed and inspired to somehow aim for the unattainable brilliance and perfection that marked Kubrick's works. I am completely devastated by the news of Kubrick's passing. What a tragic irony that the other incomparable American genius of cinema, Orson Welles, like Stanley, died at the age of seventy. All of my best wishes and deepest sympathy go to Mr. Kubrick's family. -- 03/07/99

Like thousands of devotees around the world, I feel a genuine sense of grief at the sudden passing of Stanley Kubrick. I was stunned to hear the news on the BBC World Service at 7am Hong Kong time as I awoke this morning, as was my girlfriend who has recently grown to share my profound, sometimes obsessive fascination with his movies. As films generally take several months to reach Hong Kong, we had even planned to fly across the world to see Eyes Wide Shut on the day of its release in July this year, such was the overwhelming pull of the prospect of seeing a Kubrick film in a first-run cinema for the first time. I was too young to see either The Shining or Full Metal Jacket in a theatre. I am sure that Eyes Wide Shut will be a fitting finale and tribute to his unique career. My deepest sympathies go to Stanley Kubrick's family and friends. There may never be another filmmaker quite like him. I have no doubt that he will be remembered as one of the greatest artists of the 20th Century -- 03/08/99

No doubt there will be any number of parasites crawling out of the woodwork in the coming weeks to share with us their 'version' of Kubrick - more rumours, myths, nonsense - as if there hasn't been enough garbage written about him already.

http://www.users.interport.net/~lamarcus I have seen all of Kubrick's films and his work is of a man of penetrating intelligence and wit. Each one of his films analyze and reveals some of the most important moral and philosphical issues facing mankind while putting them in the context of mesmorizing images and sound that only he could conceive of. His characters and vision are unforgettable. I am really upset by his loss. He can not be replaced. I was especially looking forward to seeing his latest Sci-Fi film AI which will probably never see the light of day. This is my first time on this site.

I have been aware of Kubrick since I have been aware of film. I remember waiting almost a year for the release of "2001" at the local 50cent movie house so my family could afford to take me. When I bought a reel to reel tape recorder the first movie I taped off TV was "Dr Strangelove". I missed a few days of food to afford to see "Barry Lyndon" when it came out in 1975 - the classic college student when Kubrick and Bergman and Fellini were our fodder in film class. I find his death very personal and the spin of the media as him being "cold" and "nihilistic" in their obit's as very hurtful. He was the steady rock of an ill gotten industry.... -- 03/08/99

Kubrick died a true artist. He was finishing up what would be his last work.

Fortunately, what remains to be done on "Eyes Wide Shut" can be attended to by his many trusted assistants. But he left this world while completing a work of art.

To all of Kubrick's fans out there, don't do as I did when I first learned of his departure, please, don't think about all the films we'll be deprived of because of life's fragility, no, don't be that egoistical, instead think of all the ones he left us with, and think about the greatest gift he could give us , a last gigantic effort to produce his last symphony.Don't you think that this isn't worth millions? It's true that life's not going to be the same anymore, but I think that Stanley Kubrick has done more than his share of work in his life and that now it's our turn to do the same.

Stanley deserves the highest accolades of any artist this century. He was truly a genius. I have been a huge fan for 18 years. Only FMJ has been released in that time. I remember how exciting that was. I thought there was no way he'd take 7 years again between films like he had after The Shining. I've been following his actions so closely this decade. First it was Aryan Papers, then A.I. and then EWS since late 96. Thank God he finished it. I just hope Warners doesn't mess with it. It was ironic to see all the hype over DiMaggio. So many people idolized him but the man hasn't done what he's famous for for decades. Idolizing a director is different. I started appreciating Stan when I was a young man and continued to follow his pursuits well into my adulthood and until his demise. It will be poignant to watch the film knowing it's his last work. I feel privilged, as if I can recognize that I've been watching someone's career who will be revered centuries from now much as a Shakespeare, Picasso, or Mozart is today and long after people forget the Speilberg's of our day. Waiting 12 years for a Kubrick film was more enjoyable then watching the 6 Scorsece films out in that time (and I love Scorcese). Take care Stan. You're the best.

In 44 years, Kubrick had managed about 13 films, for any other director, this was a long time, others like to churn out 1 a year or maybe 2 a year. So, what was so special about Kubrick? Well, because he had taken so much time on these films, and being a perfectionist, these films were the true work of Genius/a God. Every film had so much meaning, pain, laughter, anger, violence, mind-trips, so much so, that I could relate to his work, totally. ....And I still can, those films will live forever and beyond the infinite, they will continue to carry to further generations. By watching Kubrick's films, only then can you say that your life is complete, and only then!

I am an enormous Kubrick fan and i am completely saddened and devastated to hear of his passing. He was a cinematic genius, a true original and visionary who changed the course of film more than most film makers today could ever dream of. It is tragic that he was never alble to bring to reality his life long dream-project of Napoleon. But, I, like most other fans, would prefer to celebrate his life and his masterpieces(of which their were many) rather than mourn his death. It should be a fact that he never made a bad film, from Fear and Desire up to Eyes Wide Shut, which I would bet my life on will be superb. Each and every director and anyone affiliated with the film industry should bow down and pay their respects to the god of film, the genius, Stanley Kubrick. May you rest in peace. -- 03/10/99

The first Kubrick film I saw was The Killing as a second feature when I was a kid. This film astounded me by the way in which the conventional heist movie could be re-invented by non-linear story-telling. Tarantino with Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction is where Stanley was then. Each subsequent Kubrick film was a milestone in my life. As some people always know where they were when JFK was shot, I always know where my life was at when each of his films were premiered. I think the best thing that can be said about Kubrick's films is that they were about things that mattered. -- 03/11/99

I just saw Dr.Strangelove, and like all Kubrick's movies, when it ends it leaves you in a strange way, you don't know what to think about what you just saw. But you know that something has touched you deep inside. I think he was a genius not only for his great movies, but also for the photography in them, for the perfection of every scene, for the research in every character. Stanley was a philosopher, he could transmit you the right sensation at the right time, but you will realize it only later. Let's keep him alive through his great movies.

His films were perfect: colors, geometrics, violence, love, erotism, sadness, joy, terror, music, labyrinth, reborn... mankind. He invented new technics (steadycam, dolly, lenses, etc.); he marked actors (MacDowell, Nicholson, S.Duvall, R.O'Neal, etc.), playwriters (A.C.Clarke, A.Burgess, etc.), photographers (J.Alcott, ...). Each type of film has Kubrick's touch forever: war (brutal and unrational in Full Metal Jackett military estoicism in Paths of Glory, paranoical and comic in Dr.Strangelove), freezing and psico terror in Shining, romance (barroque faust in Barry Lyndon and erotic Lolita, roman epic in Spartacus, sci-fi (cosmic saga towards full knowledege in 2001-A Space Odyssey, and fiction transformed in cruel reality in A Clockwork Orange), classic and labyrintic thriller in The Killing, (only westerns were not made - if Brando has been smarter, he also did it). In Killer's Kiss he gave us the apperitive for his following laudus masterpieces. What an injustice Stanley Kubrick could not see the year 2001!

I do not recall Stanley ever talking about Shostakovich's music, but you may be interested to know that Ray Lovejoy was a big fan of his music, and when I worked later for Ray on 'Krull' (directed by Peter Yates) he got me to lay a lot of Shostakovich as temporary music tracks for an early preview for the Columbia executives. Because it was a special effects movie, lots of it had no sync sound, so some kind of temporary music was absolutely essential. And did you know that this was how Zarathrustra and the Blue Danube got to be used for 2001? For the very same reason. And it worked so well that Stanley decided to stick with it. Which was tough for the poor old composer Stanley had originally signed up! Separate point: the documentary, 'Making the Shining' (which I helped Vivian Kubrick cut) is being shown on British TV this coming Saturday (27th), BBC2 9.55 pm.

I'm just finishing to read an horrible critic of 2001 in a canadian mag Audio Ideas Guide by Andrew Marshall(email: mail@audioideas.on.ca). Mr Marshall critic 2001 and Logan's Run. The text: "These two MGM movies fit well together as a review pair, both Sci-Fi, both big-budget, and both full of special effects. Though called a classic, the 1968 2001 least stands the test of time, in my view. It is overly long, ponderous, pretensious, full of bloated symbolism (starting with those stupid apes). What else can you say about a film that is dominated by bland-voiced, neurotic computer? Nor is it served all that well in its DVD release, the extreme widescreen non-anamorphic transfer literally wasting half the screen and potential resolution. And Keir Dullea's wooden performance seems to have hardened with time. I'm afraid I now find the film more comic than anything when it's not simply boring, the only other break from these some visually and musically beautiful sequences. Plot? Forget it. And the only real special feature is a contemporaneous press conference with Arthur C. Clark, which offer some insigghts into the film and his original novel."

Stanley Kubricks "2001" was such a shock, that this film changed my life. I was a normal photographer, shooting packshots and normal advertising bullshit. But when I saw this film, I only wanted to do such movies like 2001. Unfortunately, in Germany (where I live) there has been the last sf movie done in 1931 ("Metropolis"). I was lucky to do the effects for the first sf movie in Germany since then: "Das Arche Noah Prinzip" - the first movie of Roland Emmerich ("Independence Day", "Godzilla"). But the film business was not the best. So I started to do this kind of photography I am doing since 18 years. In every photo of mine I see the influence of Stanley Kubrick. I am sure - you also.

Every scene had it's own central design, plotted and mapped cinematography, fluidity of image and sound, at the core, the central idea, the real essence of the scene, the subconcious questioning of his own mind. When scenes combine, ideas merge, yet they always retain their individuality against the collective statement, or the collective question. Film making was not about plots, and actors, but ideas and images, flourishing on the frame and embedding in the viewers mind, the real moral of the story left up to you to decide, a subjective vision. His beliefs were strong yet he never let them dominate him, his vision was always open to interpretaion, yet never the less, you always new his point of view. -- 03/30/99

Died in his sleep? DIED IN HIS SLEEP?! This was a man with passion, with drive, and only one intention - to complete AI. How could he possibly just DIE? Obviously the strain of working for Warner Bros. and with big-name no-talents, like the Kidman-Cruise duo would have taken quite a toll. After all, he was only making this mainstream commercial fodder to get the finance from the producers to make AI. But just a bit too coincidental that he should die now, just after completion, so that the studio can recut and distribute THEIR film, not his, and so that they will not have to fund a 'flop'.

to just concerned - i believe you are really being unkind to warner bros over this - stanley kubrick enjoyed a unique relationship with the company, who allowed him the total freedom to make whatever films he wanted, when he wanted and how he wanted. can you think of anyone else who has ever been given such a contract ? certainly there seems no desire on warners' part to change, cut or edit 'eyes wide shut' in any way. ll of their statements have confirmed that the print seen in new york was kubrick's 'final version' and is the one which will be released - whatever the certificate - probably an '18' in the uk and 'R' in the US. and, yes, it is surely a sad end to a life which still seemed to have so much to do, but if there is any truth in the suggestion that the effort of completing the movie brought this about, then that is surely just the way kubrick worked - i spoke with an assistant recently who told me that kubrick had been working eighteen hours a day on the movie for months in order to get it right - to criticise warners/cruise/kidman is unjustified - remember, it was kubrick who approached THEM to be in his picture. would you dispute his intentions ? to anyone else who doubts that warners will play fair with this pic - please check out any reports you can find which have appeared over the past twenty years - this company respected and loved the man. he called them his friends, and there is nothing to suggest that they would let him down now. finally - here in the uk we had no television coverage at all of the oscars (unless you had satellite tv) - can anyone tell me what sort of mention/tribute they offered to kubrick ? -- 04/11/99

me again - just noticed on the 'eyes wide shut' page that there is a thought that the trailer/teaser shown in las vegas is unique footage not from the movie. i had a letter recently from kubrick's friend julian senior at warner brothers who says 'the 84 second trailer released at showest is just that. a trailer. it is definitely footage from the film'. running time of the pic, incidentally, will be 2 hours 31 minutes. -- 04/11/99

Hello once again! I'd just like to say that there are films nowadays that are just plain stupid. Kubrick proved that film is an art, but noone answered. Now instead of art the cinema buisness has become very commercial, and only about money, don't get me wrong, I love money! But Kubrick actually spent time to prefect his work, unlike Speilberg who comes up with four movies at once. So for the love of man REMEMBER STANLEY KUBRICK!! -- 04/15/99

Hello everyone.... Last night I celebrated the 223rd birthday of my home. Well, yeah, despite its many faults (mainly in the areas of perpetuation and nurturing of greed and extreme individualism) I am still proud of our Constitution, except when so-called "patriots" alter it to suit their own beliefs. So!!! The U.S. artists' community gets yet ANOTHER snip in the hopes of upholding our glorious conservative "family values" through the ravaging of our First Amendment rights, ie: CENSORSHIP??? I speak of the small, but principal, cut from EWS. I would think that one day the general populous of adults in this nation will learn to educate themselves about content, form, etc, and relay this to their children -- by either intelligently supervising them or by being TRUE PARENTS and allowing them, at the ages appropriate to their children's maturity, to make their own decisions. So... we (I mean America) glorify the extremities of violence in retarded cop shows, TV movies, Springer and football, but the artist is still considered the subversive antisocial, Hippie-freak, dope-induced antipatriotic, useless member of a corporate society??? (Look, no offense to those of you who disagree -- but I am not speaking about EVERYone in the country, okay? I speak of the percentage of our population who are IDIOTS.) So... we can send our youth off to be killed in battle (hey chill out people, I'm also a military man myself) yet they can;t drink until they're 21 and can't make their own decisions about interpreting works of art? Yet they are taught from day One to "interpret" the Bible, for the most part, with someone else's perception. And, after having viewed the South Park movie and the Comedy Central documentary on the creators ("the MPAA is made up of 90-yr old white men") I now see why Stanley emigrated to another land. Well, I'll be staying here but, as an artist and teacher, shall forever continue to fight for: 1) the freedoms we are guaranteed, 2) the parents to take the majority of the responsibility for their children instead of leaving it up to a committee of do-gooders, and 3) to make sure I teach my daughter that art and humanities are far more important and valuable than football, corporate slime, and talk shows. Okay, I'll shut up now. PS: Tom, Nic and Syd: you have done a great thing by showing the world that this director deserves terrific artists and that art films DO have famous actors. Cheers.

Stanley Kubrick was more than just a storyteller. He knew how to photograph every scene of every movie he made to the point that the viewer felt that they were in a surreal world. That was because he would photograph them again and again until they were flawless. This technique not only produced great photography in his films but also drew fine performances from his actors and actresses. The one film that he made that stays in my mind (out of all of them) is 2001 A Space Odeyssey. -- 07/06/99

There can be no words led to describe what this mythical creature meant to me, as if sent from the silver-lined clouds of Heaven, Kubrick was a god.

As all great directors he will never truely be dead when ever I set my eyes upon "A Clockwork Orange" or "2001: A Space Oddessy" I will see his eyes behind the viewfinder searching for the perfect shot, always searching.

I saw Full Metal Jacket with a friend during my early romance with the cinema(I was twelve), before I was fascinated with composition and movement, etc.., and I was floored by the way in which the story was told. The way things went down. Something about the flow of the narrative was so systematic and eerie that I couldn't shake the movie from my mind for the rest of the summer. People I knew, and fathers of some friends of mine, who were veterans of the conflict in Vietnam claimed that FMJ was the most realistic depiction of that experience that they'd ever seen on film, (in addition to, and sometimes even more so than Apocolypse Now). Now to have that kind of statement repeated by several men who were there, and knowing full well that not a single frame was lensed in Southeast Asia, made for an enigma of storytelling that I've only now begun to uncover with any semblance of progress. My first film professor, four years later, claimed Mr. Kubrick as HIS favorite. This professor teaches NYU's prestigious Film program, and I assumed he had a valid point of view so I followed up a bit. It takes me a few years to even warm up to the idea of seeing a new Kubrick film, but that time frame is happily and rapidly increasing. What I realize after watching a Kubrick film,(and my girlfriend makes a point of reminding me to death about this), is that everywhere I look, and in so many movies since probably The Killing' SOMEONE ALWAYS RIPS-OFF A KUBRICK DEVICE! This seems to happen a bit with David Lean as well, but not nearly as much as with Kubrick. I don't care WHO Kubrick may have ripped-off because for him to have lifted an idea, the source of it is probably so obscure that my young being would have had nearly no commercial exposure to it. My dad might've,(he's two years older than Kubrick was), but not me. Therefore I'm not concerned with whom he borrowed from. Spielberg, or Carpenter, Scott, or dare I say Cameron? Whole `nother story. I have been deeply affected by the intellegence, form/function and most obviously the WIT inherent in every frame of this master's works. I aspire to affect people as subtly and overtly as this man had affected me. He will be missed... -- 07/13/99

To all fans and admirers of Stanley Kubrick: I would like to post my general disgust that Warner Brothers is planning to release two versions of Eyes Wide Shut. While Europe will get to see an unaltered NC-17 version of the film - the movie as Stanley Kubrick wanted it to be seen, we in North America will only have access to a ìdigitally alteredî R rated version. Apparently, there is a scene in which Tom Cruiseís character walks through a orgy. For North American audiences the scene has been digitally censored by placing additional background characters in front of some of the sexual acts. Warner Brothers justifies this act of censorship by saying that Kubrickís contract required he produce an R rated movie. This is crap! I for one have no intention of seeing Eyeís Wide Shut until I have access to Kubrickís unaltered cut. PS Tom Cruise is appearing tonight (July 15th) on CNNís Larry King Live Show. Perhaps some one should ask Tom about the changes to the film. I believe he is on record as saying he would never allow the film to be cut.

I have seen every Stanley Kubrick movie and I enjoyed hem all. I admire his work, and it really inspires me to direct movies just like he did. -- 07/20/99

EWS was the most beautiful big screen experience I have ever had. I was too young for Full Metal Jacket but am confident that this movie would still have affected me more. The reason I am so affected by this piece of art is because it deals with the horrible feelings asociated with sexual jeolousy. Sex is a very primitive desire, one that takes control of us at times, yet we can fill with such hate when we think that someone is foolin' with our girl/guy. It might be the cause for wars and hatred towards those different from us. And the idea that your Senator is at some wild Roman sex party! The stoned conversation between Nicole and Tom is the most wonderful illustration of the ways that men and women can't communicate or understand their differences or similarities. My girlfriend and I laughed so hard, it was so typical. I loved the movie and I hope all Kubrick fans were as moved as I was. -- 07/26/99

Hi, I have watched the movie " Eyes Wide Shut " by Stanley Kubrick. Being a Hindu I am very displeased with the blatant misuse of the sacred Bhagavath Gita chants. This shows total ignorance & callousness on the part of the film makers. It should be noted that Bhagavad-Gita is the sacred scripture of Hinduism, akin to the Bible for Christianity and Koran for Islam. The "sloka", chants (mis) used in the movie stands for "Dharma", the establishment of righteousness. (Mis) Using the sloka in an orgy scene shows the complete irrelevance of the scene. This clearly shows lackadaisical nature on the part of a noted director, Mr. Stanley Kubrick. This act hurts the feelings of Hindus. Would the film maker try the same act with Jews, Christians or Muslims? This is a blatant misuse of right of free speech. I would expect the film makers to censure the chants and respect the religious texts of Hindus. Please ensure that you do not hurt the feelings of a community or a section of people before promoting a movie. Regards, -- 07/31/99

Yeah..... finally saw EWS last night, as my g/f made me wait until we could go see it together. I'm still pissed about the fact that we Americans can't see the TRUE director's cut, but nevertheless I was astonished. A truly insightful study on the psychology of human sexuality. Though now I must take back my letter of Spring last, where I mentioned the disappointment in the lack of music from the Soviet composer Dmitri Shostakovich in Kubrick's films. Well, EWS contains a bit of Shosty (employed as "ironic contrast") -- the Waltz from Jazz Suite #2. Pitched against the ominous 2-tone Dream music which prevails the cinematic theme, the Waltz offers a lighter breathe for the audience to take in: a) while the good doctor strides through his office suite and b) while exiting the theater. Kudos to the music editor!!! And Kudos to the cast.... and, of course, to Stanley wherever he may be. Write soon, Gordon. -- 08/08/99

To Jake Levy: I have an answer for you. This comes from the April 1988 edition (Ballantine Books, New York) of Anthony Burgess' "A Clockwork Orange," originally published in 1962. Page ix of the Introduction, penned by Burgess himself in November 1986, contains the following words, I quote: ". . . by definition, a human being is endowed with free will. He can use this to choose between good and evil. If he can only perform good or only perform evil, then he is a clockwork orange -- meaning that he has the appearance of an organism lovely with colour and juice but is in fact only a clockwork toy to be wound up by God or the Devil or (since this is increasingly replacing both) the Almighty State. It is as inhuman to be totally good as it is to be totally evil. The important thing is moral choice. Evil has to exist along with good, in order that moral choice may operate." Perhaps George Lucas considers this paradox while writing his Star Wars stories? Cheers. And go see EWS as soon and as often as possible. -- 08/08/99

Having viewed EWS five times now I am marvelled by Kubrick....though I cannot help but ask why Nicole Kidman had to falsely display an American accent.

My mother and I thought perhaps it would have been a little mystical (if thats the correct word) for her to keep her natural Aussie voice..it would seem half of her words appeared Australian anyway as she doesn't speak an American accent well.

Here is an interesting quote about Dr. Strangelove from the National Alliance WebPages. http://www.natvan.com American Dissident Voices Broadcast of August 28, 1999 The National Alliance is the world’s foremost organization working for the long-term interests of White Americans. "Did you ever see the Stanley Kubrick film Dr Strangelove? If you didn't, you should. It's an old film, a satirical film made in 1964, but it's also the funniest film I've ever seen, and I guess I've watched it a dozen times. Stanley Kubrick really was cut from quite different cloth; he was unlike any other Jewish film director in Hollywood. Anyway, if you've seen Dr. Strangelove you'll certainly remember a delightful character in the film named Colonel Bat Guano. Toward the end of the film, when Peter Sellers, in his role as a Canadian Air Force officer, is desperately trying to telephone Washington with the Information needed to head off an imminent doomsday nuclear war, Colonel Bat Guano, as a stereotypically pigheaded authoritarian, refuses to let the Canadian officer make his telephone call. To Colonel Guano, the Canadian is not to be trusted, because he wears a funny uniform and has a British accent. Furthermore, the Canadian wants to break a few rules in the emergency situation, such as taking coins from a Coke machine in order to get his call through to the Pentagon war room. Colonel Guano is outraged by such irregularities and never does understand the situation. The Canadian officer finally makes his telephone call, but by then it is too late to avert doomsday. Anyway, the reason I bring Colonel Guano into the program now is that he is a wonderful embodiment of traits all too often found in military and police officials. Cops look up to authority figures and to institutions with an aura of authority. They believe what they see on television. They don't question it. They are likely to be indignant and hostile toward anyone who does question it. They don't like people who rock the boat or have a different view of things. They are strong on conformity and a bit weak on basic principles and on logical consistency. Certainly, this isn't true of all cops or all military officers, but the tendency is definitely there. The subliminal propaganda messages in the media find a receptive audience among cops." -- 08/28/99

Thanks for the site. I'm glad someone worthwhile got this internet address. I'll be back constantly, I'm sure. Someone was mentioning similarites between Kubrick and Ridley Scott. They are similar only if you ignore practically everything Ridley did after Legend. And while Scott's first four films do have a strong visual emphasis, I would have to say that they are more empathic (relatively speaking) than Kubrick films. Also, I think that Ridley's painterly, kaliedoscopic style is quite different than Kubrick's exquisite symmetry which tends more towards the simplistic. I was watching Clockwork Orange last night... and I think I spotted the Kube. Making a cameo in one of his own films. Seems unlikely, I know, but I really think it's him. It's during the long backwards tracking shot during which Alex checks out the record shop... near the beginning of the shot, he passes a shortish, stout gentleman on screen right wearing a brown coat who has his back to the camera, as if he's making a telephone call. His head is turned just enough so that you can make out the big shaggy beard that we all know. Take a look. I'd put down the DVD chapter and time but I'm not at home. -- 09/08/99

Friday night, screen bigger than life, adrenaline 100%, it's a "A Film By Stanley Kubrick": Eyes Wide Shut premiere in Lisbon. First let me say that it's a shame that we will see no more films "directed by SK". EWS is definitely a master piece in every sense. Magnificent colors, dazzling our retina (the grain when the shot is in close-up is absolutely unbelievible), photo shots (1.Venecian mirror and 2.Between generic are magnificent) as anybody else could take. Amazing soundtrack, magnificent adaptation in every single moment of the film. Travelling the camera during almost every inch of film. Great perfomances by both leading and supporting actors (fragile Kidmand and lost Cruise are five stars). Thrilling situations leading the viewer like peeping toms. Tender situations shacking the viewer impassionately. Powerful and energetic script, fascinating us and instigating our minds. Gorgeous decors. Symmetry. Labyrinth. That's a masterpiece alright! God bless your soul Mr.Kubrick! and thanks for this magnificent piece of art. I'm planning to see EWS, before buying its video version, at least two more times. And friends, do not believe what critics say. Go see the picture. And think for yourselves. Paulo Ferrero -- 09/13/99

Stanley Kubrick was in my opinion the greatest movie-director of all times. Especially "2001" and "Eyes Wide Shut" are masterpieces in the history of movie-buissnes. 2001 was the best science-fiction-movie I´ve ever seen and "Eyes Wide Shut" was the most brilliant movie of our whole decade. Sure, some critics thought that "Eyes Wide Shut" was just a pornographical film made by an old man, but in my opinion it was a wonderful movie about the relatinship between men and women. I read the novel, on which the film was basing on. The "Traumnovelle" by the european writer "Arthur Schnitzler" was really great and I thought that you can´t produce this stuff on the big screen. But it worked. Kubrick made the impossible possible! The cast was genious, because Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman did the greatest jobs of their whole career. In my opinion it´s sure that Nicole Kidman gets the Academy Award in the next year for best actress in a leading role. My favorite film by Kubrick is "The Shining" with a great Jack Nicholson. I don´t know why nobody noticed this, but I noticed a mistace in the opening-scene of "The Shining". Was it a real mistake, that you can see the shadow of an helicopter? I thought that Kubrick was a perfect director. This mistake wasn´t really his style... All in all I want to thank Stanley Kubrick, because his films influenced my whole live. Thank you, Stanley. -- 11-9-1999

Over the summer of 98' i read John Baxtor's biography on Kubrick. A few months previously i had seen "Lolita" and enjoyed it thoroughly. It was the only Kubrick film i had seen and so in reading the biography many things were spoiled for me. But it is one of the best things that i ever did. I'm not talking about enjoyment of the book (which was excellent), i'm talking about the fact it opened me up to the work of a man i'd only heard of and briskly read about - never having seen any of his work. I am only 15 and i am a budding film maker but previously my interests were in Hitchcock and the like so naturally my aims for my career were to emulate there work - copy off their style in other words. Reading about Kubrick and seeing his films (i've seen them all bar Clockwork Orange, Fear and Desire & Killer's Kiss) proved to me that the only way to be a real film maker is to push the form and create things that the cinema has never seen before. Kubrick really did that. Films like 2001, Clockwork Orange & Eyes Wide Shut have forever changed the way movies are made and will continue to influence film - makers for surely well into the next millenium. Such a petty that AI was never made - same goes for Napoleon. Although one can't help that the latter may have been better left un filmed. Kubrick would have surely been nearly eighty (or perhaps into his eighties) when he came to film it and even Kubrick would have failed to have the stamina at that age to film a full scale epic, but then again we'll never know. An interesting side point from reading the biography was the unfilmed Terry Southern novel "Blue Movie" that Kubrick turned down. It would have caused massive controversy, perhaps more than A Clockwork Orange did and would have seriously progressed sex in the cinema which (as Eyes Wide Shut proved to be on a different theme than sex) has never been seriously considered in the cinema. Thank heavens Kubrick came along. Without him the cinema would be at a loss. -- 12.4.99

The embarrassment of reality, oh the pathos! And, I still remember you Stanley, and thank you again for Eyes Wide Shut, it is a film that will keep us disecting and admiring for years. Btw, does anyone feel EWS is a lot like ACO more than any other Kubrick film?

I love Stanley Kubrick. Albeit he is not my FAVOURITE filmmaker (Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger come first), I have great admiration for his films. Plus I also enjoy them. I have certainly learned a lot from watching them. To other fanatics out there I recommend 'Stanley Kubrick by Vincent LoBrutto' and 'Stanley Kubrick Directs by Alexander Walker'. Kubrick was to the latter half of the twentieth century what Eisenstien, Griffith and Von Stroheim were to the former. It must be a great honour for Steven Spielberg to direct AI at Stanley's request!!!! It is one thing for Kubrick to ask you to act in his films or co-write etc... but to be told by THE MASTER that you would do a better job than he in realising a project!!!!!! I am glad that 'A Clockwork Orange' is being released in the UK, it is good film. The death threats the Kubrick family received show how narrow minded anti-censorship is. However I wish it was still banned in a way, because it would mean that Kubrick was alive, well and making films (maybe he might have made his beloved 'Napoleon') I glimpsed in a book that there are seven Kubrick interviews on the web, could any of you nice people tell me where they are. I haven't seen 'Paths of Glory' yet. Bah. Anyway the only video I have of Kubrick is his 'disowned' 'Spartacus', I refuse to buy the others because they are panned and scanned. I mean '2001' in so-called full screen, give us a break!!!! I don't think DVDs have any widescreen versions. The same goes for Hitchcock, 'North By Northwest' and 'Vertigo' were released in VistaVision, RELEASE THOSE ON WIDESCREEN IF YOU'RE READING THIS! Sorry about that outburst folks. Anyway, last but not least, my Kubrick highlight was seeing 'Dr Strangelove' at the National Film Theatre. Not only did I laugh out loud and felt the full benefit of a Kubrick classic (this is my favourite of his, where can I get the screenplay?) but had the added treat of seeing the famous pie throwing scene. That scene was to have appeared at the end of the film and it's a revelation. Dr Strangelove turns out to be sane whilst the President and the Russian (I know! I know!) end up being mad. For 'Goon Show' fanatics Peter Sellers even does an Eccles voice whilst making mud-pies with the damaged cakes. If you're reading this Christiane please could you write a book on your time with Stanley so that we can sort out the wheat from the chaff. -- Saturday 29th January 23:08 (UK)

We all have our heroes; Stanley Kubrick was one of mine. My universe changed forever at the age of 10, when my parents bundled all of us kids into the station wagon and drove to the Rockville (Maryland) Drive-In to see "2001: A Space Odyssey." I've made a point to see every film he made since then, and I have searched out as many of his older films as I've been able. I am still grieving his death. To think that no more films will be made with his singular artistic vision is profoundly dismaying. And now I'm angry as well, after learning that Warner Bros. intends to release only the digitally-altered R-rated version of "Eyes Wide Shut" in the United States. Have they no respect? Anyone who has ever read or owned a copy of Jerome Agel's "The Making of Kubrick's 2001" knows what resource it is, especially with its thick 96-page photo insert (They don't do photo inserts in paperbacks anymore, do they?). You may also know how difficult it is to find a decent copy, since it's been out of print for some 30 years. My original copy is hopelessly dog-eared and held together with duct tape. I am very pleased to report, however, that I was able to find a copy of this book in VERY GOOD condition at Rudy's Books in San Diego. You can find them on the web at http://web-span.com/rudybook/. Check it out; you may be able to find a good copy yet. Mine cost only $2.50, a real find! For those of you who particularly admire "2001," I cannot recommend Piers Bizony's "2001: Filming the Future" highly enough. This handsome and glossy book deserves a place on the coffee table of any self-respecting Kubrick-phile. It can be ordered swiftly and easily through Amazon.com. Particularly sobering is the final chapter of the book, in which Bizony looks at how our misplaced political, economic, and military priorities have all but ruined any possibility of exploring the universe, certainly in any way remotely like what Kubrick envisioned. Bless you all. -- January 31, 2000

I have just found this site, and it is very interesting to me. I have seen EWS once, and I don't know if that was enough to understand all that Kubrick meant for us to see. I was very impressed with the soundtrack, although I hope that all the other music that might have fit the film got the attention and consideration that I am sure they deserved. Don't get me wrong, the chosen pieces worked very well, even though I am not a big Shostakovich fan. :-) I feel that this was a huge cinimatic triumph, as were all of Kubricks works. I am very saddened that we shall not see more of this, with the exception of the one that someone else is finishing...what is the name of it again? AI? IA? I'm not sure, and I could be wrong...there IS a first time for everything! Anyways, my congratulations go out to Kubrick, wherever he may be...Bravo! -- 2-09-2000

Viddy Well fellow Kubrick fans. I would like to start by saying what a great and insiring director Stanley Kubrick was. I don't think that he was given enough recognition when he was alive and has only just become a really popular director. His films have made me concentrate on the directing more than what is actually going on in the film. If you were to look at my 10 favourite films of all time you would see that my top 3 is devoted to Kubrick (they are The Shining at No1, A Clockwork Orange at No2 and Full Metal Jacket at No3.) It is hard to find a director that has directed so many different types of movie from horror such as the Shining to Science Fiction like 2001: A Space Odysee. From Historical such as Barry Lyndon to a war film like Full Metal Jacket. I think that Kubrick brought a certain kind of magic to the sceen which no other director could. -- 5/5/00

Kubrick is the God of Film making, no other film director will have the impact as the true master did. Other directors can only strive to achieve what Kubrick did to film making. His work will live on forever and has set the standard that no one else will ever do again. My favourite Kubrick Films 1.Barry Lyndon (Highly underated, the most beautiful film ever) 2.Eyes Wide Shut (Will be regarded a masterpiece in years to come) 3.A Clockwork Orange (Set the standard for violence in film) 4.Paths Of Glory (The Greatest Injustice Film Ever) 5.Lolita (Kubrick was brave enough to make this film in 1960) 6.Dr Strangeglove (Hilarious) 7.The Killing (Tarantino could only dream of making this) 8.The Shining (Too scary to be his masterpiece) 9.2001 : A Space Oddysey (What more can you say) 10.Spartacus (Kubrick shouldn't have disowned this epic) 11.Killer Kiss (Could Only go on to greatness) 12.Full Metal Jacket (The first 40 minutes is so good that the rest of the film fails to compare, Kubrick still delivered the best Vietnam film ever. -- 12th May 2000

Only one established director alive, other than Scorcese, could successfully carry out SK's vision for AI. Mr. Spielberg, thank you for taking on this immense project! I had this flash in my head while he delivered the all-too-short eulogy on SK at the Oscars last year -- the flash that he and SK had been sitting behind closed doors plotting this all out. On to the music. AI seems to be one of those projects that will not require a grandiose Romantic Period orchestral score. I HIGHLY respect John Williams as a composer, arranger, conductor and historian -- AND as Spielberg's creative partner. Mr. Williams has composed some of history's most unforgettable (beautiful and frightening) music. However, I cannot seem to aurally juxtapose his stylistic approach(es) with what I assume AI to become. For some reason I hear sparse Impressionistic melodic material... even Satie?

For Newie: To help you along in your quest for the color question: 1)Consider that in the spectral world, black and white create the greatest amount of visual contrast, yes? But when you consider the COLORIZED aspect, red and blue would be the primaries that compliment, yet fight against, each other best. Kubrick was a huge fan of film noir ("black film") as is evident in his B/W projects. While producing a colorized film, would it not make sense then to highlight Reds and Blues as the colored versions of the necessary contrasting shades in film noir? 2) Color may be used as SYMBOLISM with implications that "cool" colors (blue, green, violet) suggests serenity ot tranquility, whereas "warm" colors (red, yellow, orange) suggest aggressiveness, violence and stimulation. Perhaps Kubrick was after this effect. 3) Perhaps Kubrick attempted to create new compositional balances by employing color where B/W may have successful before, or that his highlighting of specific shades may be nothing more than a jolt to increase the audience's feeling of displacement -- lost in a scene that is familiar in life, yet made creepingly unfamiliar by Kubrick's mastery. (He never wanted you to remain in the mise en scene, thus in his head, for too long -- remember this.) Some other directoral/cinematographic examples: Scorcese, Fellini, Truffaut, Spielberg (look at Close Encounters), and especially Akiro Kurosawa's films all provide excellent approaches to the emotional and psychological effectiveness of color.

Has Kubrick ever explained why he opposed to his films being released on VHS/DVD in widescreen? Considering the aspect ratio of his later work, this does not extremely alter or damage the visual element, but it would be a treat to experience his films in whole – imagine the deterioration of the fish-eye lenes feature in A Clockwork Orange in full-screen? Unfortunately, this is unlikely to happen seeing as it is said Kubrick has a court order against anyone fiddling around with his films, which is understandable under most circumstances, but I find this full-screen syndrome just as degrading as the censoring of the US release of Eyes Wide Shut and puts me in the rare position of opposing my mentor’s decisions. Ultimately, this ‘tampering’ restriction also prevents his work from being remastered for the most part, which is ludicrous as these are important works of the 20th century and should be preserved. Perhaps Kubrick was striving to attract the popcorn crowd? This would be ironic and disappointing if true, but it seems a possibility, especially when considering that ACO capitalises on its graphic content in advertisements. -- 3rd of December, 2000

More news on AI..... check out Spielberg's site(s). Hey Luna you're a cool kid! It's always good to see younger people appreciating art, But his best movie is definitely Barry Lyndon, at least for your age. -- A cold day in January

Hi! I love this pages! Thanks! Hmm... And I love number nine, today is ninth day of january. Why I all the time write bullshit?! I'm sorry about that... Really. But I want to write something. I want. You perhaps think that I'm crazy... Maybe I am. And now little finnish: Kiitos Stanley, sinun ansiostasi elämässäni on jotain mieltä ja tarkoitusta. Kuollessasi en vielä edes tinnyt sinusta mitään, mutta nyt tiedän. Et ole minulle mikään ''vain hetken loistava tähti'', vaan olet jotain paljon enemmän. En usko, että tahdot kenenkään pitävän sinua jumalana, enkä sellaisena sinua pidäkään. Arvostan sinua vain niin paljon. Niin ihmisenä kuin elokuvantekijänäkin. Amen. Yours, Luna. -- 9.1.2001.

I would like to congratulate you on a brilliant website. Definitely one of the best I've visited. Being a bit of a Kubrick freak, I've searched the web high and low for a decent site to accompany my appreciation of the great man's work. Yours was one of the first I found. Anyone else out there who wants to trawl the web for information, don't bother! This is the site you want. Keep up the good work. It's nice to know there's somebody out there who gives up their own time and effort to maintain such an excellent standard. I congratulate you...sincerely...Mark Sweeney...Glasgow..Glas...Ma...Mark..Mark............Glasg..Scot....Scotland...SSSSSSSSCCccCCCooTTTT..Sween................................................ ..... .... ... .. . . -- 19th January 2001

If there is anybody on this site who thinks (like I do) that Barry Lyndon is the greatest film ever made, e-mail me. I won't debate with anyone who thinks Strangelove, 2001, or Clockwork are better because really, ANY Kubrick film is a masterpiece. However, I get pretty riled up when I run into somebody who thinks Barry is boring. You are calling on some serious juju voodoo from me if you think Barry is boring. I will admit it's SLOW, but never boring.You have to prepare yourself for Barry Lyndon. You can't just throw it in the VCR or DVD player. Have some wine. Light some candles.Maybe even put on Handel's Water Music for an hour beforehand. Do some ritual, friends. Because you owe it to yourself (let alone the film) to see it in the right mood. That's all, I love you all, and may there be "Health To The Barley Mow". -- February 12, 2001

Lord: Yes, "Barry Lyndon" is truly ONE of the greatest films ever produced. Wine is necessary, as are the candles, in addition to 3 hours of free time. However, there are three musical works better suited to prepare for this experience: 1) Turlough O'Carolan: "Lamentation" 2) Mozart: Sonata for Violin and Piano in G, KV.379; and 3) Schubert: Trio in Eb for Violin, Cello, and Cello (the Second Movement of which is featured as ongoing theme in the film). Cheers, Fair Lad. Peace out. -- A Cold Day in February

Composer
Excuse me: Schubert's Trio in Eb for Violin, Cello and PIANO. --

Kubrick - the man, the myth, the legend. Apparently he never knew exactly what he wanted, but exactly what he didn't, which, in its own wierd way explains all his films. The greatest artist of all time. Strangelove rules. See ya. -- 17/02/01

I'm so lucky, i've just spoken to Jan Harlan, Kubrick's Producer for more then 30 yaers, we had a long talk about kubrick, he answered my many questions about The films, but the best thing was that he gave me an original mask from Eyes wide Shut. I'm so happy!!! Kubick rules! -Leslie -- 11/04-01
