Stanley Kubrick... He is a perfectionist, a true movie-maniac... No one in cinema, created a more effecting visuality than he did. "2001" ise the best movie of all times, just because it tells us something, with the pure language of images, of cinema. "Kubrick Multimedia Film Guide" is a real paradise for Kubrick-lovers. It's not just easy to use, it also contains all the information and links for the Kubrick's movies. Keep up the goodwork! I'd like contact with other Kubrick lovers as well... http://sinema.base.org -- 01/01/98

I live in the UK. In the same county as Mr Kubrick, who deserves a medal (or 50). wow. Anyway... As I live in the UK, I can't (in theory) see clockwork orange. I have done so, through going to america, but why doesn't Stan realise that a fantastic piece of art cinema with a minimal bodycount won't REALLY offend anyone, especially in these days of quentin Tarantino et al. ugh and also.... If you put an a after the first letter of his name, you get Satanly Kubrick. frightening. feel free to email me about anything kubrick. -- 01/02/98

There is no other film director alive who can control the medium of cinema as well as Kubrick; not even Scorsese! "Paths of Glory" is the greatest anti-war film of them all, and it packs a bigger punch than "Platoon", "Apocalypse Now", and all those other hard-hitting war films that came about 20 years after it. And before I forget: Peter Sellers' performance in "Lolita" deserved an Oscar. -- 01/08/98

Kubrick's film rendition of Clockwork was excellent. My only complaint was that the last chapter of the book was not included in the movie. Without this vital part, the character of Alex is left in a limbo without conclusion. The novel's final, mature handling of the character Alex in the final chapter, I thought, was a critical message in the book. (For the few of us that have bothered to read the novel.) -- 01/15/98

A Clocwork Orange is the greatest movie evere created by human mind. Mr Kubrick - especially in ACO and Barry Lyndon, has choosen wonderful musics. The powerful mix (Alex+Ludwig Van+9th symphony) creates POETRY. I'll never forget the moment when Alex walks along the music shop, and I really love the sequence of Alex on the river with ris droogs. -- 01/24/98

I feel that three of Kubrick's works are among the top ten films ever made, foreign or domestic. They are "Dr. Strangelove", "2001" and "A Clockwork Orange". His other work is fascinating as well, but those three movies (which came one right after the other) are cinematic masterpieces and should be required viewing for all film buffs. -- 01/25/98

Benjamin Fleischhacker (ben.fleischhacker@state.mn.us) wrote:
Stanley Kubrick's movies have inspired awe and admiration for over forty years. The movies he has made have ranged in subject matter from a costume piece to a film aobut the failure of man pertaining to it's reliance on artificial intelligence as opposed to using it's own logic to solve problems. The problems can be as minute as maintaining societal order or as grand as what is to become of our world and the folly of all of our machinations. No director, not even Steven Spielberg, such imaginative subject matter and turned it into something so profound. His trilogy (I call it a trilogy, because each displays a hint of pessimism or, at the least, sadness at the thought that a supposedly rational animal cannot solve it's problems in a more effective way. The movies are: Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and A Clockwork Orange. Kubrick takes the history of man and the future of man and, in his movies, reduces man's existence to the fact that we are incapable, rather than capable. Individually, we may be capable of a great many things, but together we destroy. Kubrick takes a Nietschean slant at his films, the point that morality is weaker than it's opposite and loses in the end. Strength is not necessarily an attribute, but it naturally dominates what people would deem good and just. In the last twenty five years, Kubrick's powers have diminished greatly, and this is only natural, considering how impressive and profound his earlier works were and are. The subject matter tackled in the earlier films cannot be replicated, but his early films will live on as long as there are a few rational beings on this earth who desire a couple of hours of entertainment and enlightenment. "Daisy, daisy, tell me your answer, do....," being the entertainment and the triumph of evil over good, being the primary focus of his filmography, from the two French military men in Paths of Glory, to the ostensibly reasonable, but ultimately, dehumanizing government in A Clockwork Orange. -- 01/26/98

No one person can ever equal the breadth of Kubrick's visions again, I think. His films will certainly become immortalized, as have other hreat works that examine mankind, mankind's failings, and mankind's triumphs. On a personal note, I have discovered an interesting coincidence in my favorite Kubrick film, 2001. I do not claim that it adds anything to the monumental film, but this is interesting as an interpretive art piece, if youwill. The group Pink Floyd released an album shortly aftre this film entitiled Meddle. The second side of the LP was entirely taken up with an instrumental song entitled Echoes. THis song is exactly the length of the final section of 2001, stating at the title screen that says "Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite". If anyone should try this, and has any comments, good or bad, please mail me. Thank you, and goodnight. May Kubrick never die. -- 02/05/98

Stanley Kubrick is an extremely talented filmmaker, although he often takes alot of time to make his movies, it is well worth the wait. Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange is an excellent movie. His views of what a futuristic society overrun by gangs is disturbing and fascinating. Malcolm McDowell's performance is astonishing as the sadistic punk Alex. The movie also seems to be questioning the rights the government has in toying with the minds of its prisoners and how far they should be allowed to go in order to prevent violent crimes. The film has a sort of poetic justice to it when Alex gets out of jail and is brutalized by all the people he terrorized before he underwent the Luddivicho Treatment. A Clockwork Orange is a brilliant masterpiece from Stanley Kubrick and should be viewed by anyone that can stomach it. -- 02/05/98

My only hope for Kubrick is that EYES WIDE SHUT is not only a return to form but also a big financial success -- the reason I think he put AI (what a terrible title - SUPERTOYS would be much better) aside was, not only the limitations of current special effects, but also there's a whole generation of people who don't really know his name or what a great filmaker he is. By working on this project with the likes of Cruise, a mediocre actor at best (though I'm sure Kidman will be wonderful - look at TO DIE FOR) kubrick at least gauruntees a respectable commercial hit, reassuring the studios about the costly AI, which if made properly, would of course be his greatest film because it includes all the subjects all of his movies have touched on: free will, technology, politics, etc. I hope he live to be a hundred! -- 02/12/98

Though I must admit that 2001, Clockwork Orange, and Dr. Strnagelove may be the most thought prevoking of Kubrick's films (ALL of which are as good as any that have ever been made; i.e 8 1/2, Citizen Kane, etc.) I must dissent from popular opinion in that as good as those films are, I don't think that he has ever made as fine a film as Barry Lyndon. Ironically enough it is probably his least discussed film in forums such as this. An unrecognized masterpiece for sure. -- 03/03/98

I had been a huge fan of 2001 for years before I got around to seeing A Clockwork Orange and Dr. Strangelove. Even as a little kid 2001 appealed to me on an emotional level if not an intellectual one. Kubrick is able to capture images in ways which is usually reserved for classical art. In addition, his movies are incredibly subversive, filled with ideas which aren't often explored in studio films. As you can see, I have thoroughly come under his spell. I've been looking for "The Lost Worlds of 2001" for years but I've never been able to find it. I wonder if anyone knows anything about it? Also, if anyone knows of any Kubrick interviews where he talks about any contemporary filmmakers, I'd be interested in what he has to say. -- 03/19/98

Kubrick is brilliant, plain and simple. EWS has taken so long since first word of it because perfection takes time. He is one of the greatest directors of all time (second only to Hitchcock, possibly). But judging would be unfair. The fact remains that cinema would not be where it is today without works like DR. STANGELOVE OR HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, or THE SHINING. His films will last in cinema history forever.

His films are daring, profound, insightful, and addictive. I have probably seen Full Metal Jacket the most out of all of his films, but I can't say that I like it more then Lolita, 2001, A Clockwork Orange, or even Barry Lyndon.

As with most serious filmlovers I am as obsessed with Kubrick'swork as he is with the topics of movies he chooses to make.Undoubtably, this is the most comprehensive Kubrick site on the web. Glad I found you. Question? Kubrick's sets are always tightly secure from the prying eyes of the media and public. Infact,as you are probably aware, there are no "making of" type documentaries on any of his films-except one. "Stanley Kubrick'sThe Shining" is a very rare, behind the scenes look at the creation of that landmark film. Shot and edited by Kubricks's daughter, the film was seen only once by PBS viewers shortly after the films release in 1980. Can anyone find this video?I am officially putting out an internet bounty for anyone who canbring it in. Name your price it's worth it. -- 05/13/98

Regarding Tom, Nicole and quality control.I am a film critic in New Zealand, and like most visitors to this site a huge Kubrick admirer. If only, God, if only more directors and writers and producers would put as much care and craft and simple thought into their films as he does. If only Kubrick was as prolific as Woody Allen... There has been a fair amount of criticism re Kubricks' choice of leads in EWS, although I think we all agree his name has never appeared in Women's Magazines and mass gossip columns to this extent. Nicole Kidman has proved she can make bad decisions and get involved in bad movies, but she has also proven she can shine- "To Die For", Tom Cruise may be the target of ridicule for those who haven't seen much more than Top Gun and Days Of Thunder, but his earlier films contain some great work, and Jerry Maguire!!! Tom played a basically normal flawed character and made it to the Oscars while every other nominee was the predictable "cripple" character- (a delight for actors to play what with all the business and quirks and sympathy, but a lot easier than coming up with the whole life of an ordinary person).Relax, Stanley does quality control. He's not going to release a piece of shit, and Tom and Nicole would hardly throw away this much of their lives on anything less than career-high parts.P.S. Does anyone really expect the dec 98 release date to stand? If Kubrick has been editing as he goes, or, is contractually bound with warners to deliver on a date could you please e-mail me, we have a regular "Eyes wide Shut" gossip and rumour control section on our show.

Matt Turner (pud@river.net.au) wrote:
If you watch Kubrick's films from 2001 onwards you will notice that he becomes less preocupied with offering the viewer a tightly connected narrative structure. Whilst the stories follow a recognisable linear narrative sequence they are more akin to a string of individual, self contained set pieces glued together by less important 'filler' sequences. One could argue that a thematic characteristic of Kubrick's post-Dr. Strangelove films are that they contain around six to eight crucial sequences or 'non-submersible' sequences that are the real substance of the film. Within each of these sequences, or individual set pieces, a particular or group of fundamental human conditions are interpreted in a way that attempts to present them in their most instantly recognisable form - or what is known as the archetypal. It could be therefore argued that a stylistic concern of Kubrick as an autuerist is to continualy 'pare' down each scenario until only the fundamentals remain. -- 06/23/98

For the record I'd like to say I'm glad Kubrick ignored the final chapter of Burgess' Clockwork Orange in his adaption. Although it fitted neatly into the films rigid structure, it was frankly ridiculous. The film allows you to make a judgement on Alex for who he really was, without the happy, shiny ending. Of course, the other reason why Kubrick left it out was probably because the first American publications of the book did not contain that chapter....... -- 07/04/98

I just wanted to write and tell you my own feelings about Kubrick's films. I want to say something that most of you will find a little frustrating, perhaps annoyed about. Basically - i am obsessed with this guy - I am captured totally by something surrounding his films - perhaps the covers, perhaps all of the comments you have made. I am obsessed, yet - this is it - i have never seen one of his films. It sounds stupid - perhaps pathetic, but try to understand it. I am a fan - and I use that word very liberally! - who can offer a perspective that no-one else here can. It's a kind of ignorrance - a great ignorrance in fact, but I'm just experiencing the weirdest and absurd affinity to a director who's work I've never seen.

Hello once again Kubrick freaks! Before I come to what I wanted to say, I just wanna tell you Mr. Kubrick that you have made me realize how great the movie-making cycle is! So, thanks to YOU, I am now attending a Film Production Course and on my way to my dream-career. Kubrick has inspired me since 5. Sorry if people have been trying to reach me, regarding my message quite a few months back about having "E-mail Kubrickian Pen Pals", as I have had some extremely bad problems with my connection. My current mail address doesn't work AT THE MOMENT, but it will be fixed up soon. If you wanna write to me now, I have a new address just for the meantime: kue_brick@hotmail.com And incase anyone wants to be jealous of me, I own a copy of Kubrick's secret movie Beyond the Door. I understand why he banished this movie from his filmography list, nevertheless, its fascinating. -- 08/17/98

Having just seen "The Killing" on Friday, I realized that Kubrick's level of genius stands definitely on par with that of Hitchcock, Hawks, Borzage, Preminger, Scorcese, or the rest. I was particularly struck by the subtlety and precision with which he captured a "darkly comic" tone, as was mentioned above, without compromising the film's staggering impact. Same as with Dr. Strangelove; uproariously funny, yet no less haunting for being so. He has an incredible ability to cap his movies with climactic images that seem lifted straight from the depths of a collective American unconscious; thousands of hundred-dollar bills swirling in an airplane-engine tornado- a man yee-haawing into the vast atmosphere surrounding him, waving a cowboy hat, as he plummets towards earth on the back of a nuclear bomb.

Even now it is difficult to scratch the surface of the scope of Kubrick's movies. They are the grandest of all paradoxes: the lens of his movies are so wide, encompassing not only humanity, but humanity's relationship to itself. With this lens, he is able to paint minute details about ourselves in such a way as to not make us realize it until we sit donw and think about it.

Kubrick is undoubtably one of the geniuses of film. Even his "lesser" films are something to be treasured, re-watched, studied, and enjoyed. His masterpieces, especially "Dr. Strangelove or: How I learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" are the VERY BEST film has offered. I, like every other film fan, anxiously await "Eyes Wide Shut" and every and any other future projects. Besides the obvious favorites, I absolutely LOVE "The Killing". The AFI list of top 100 films of the century was - like any list - flawed, but look how many Kubrick pictures are there. Look how many made the top 30. It's no fluke. Kubrick is a treasure, to be sure. But, what do I know? I'm just some "deviated pre-vert".... -- 11/09/98

Though the literaty-minded film critics frequently have valid criticisms of Kubrick's work, they ultimately miss the point. Kubrick is a FILM artist. In my humble opinion Kubrick and Robert Altman are the finest Filmmakers America has yet produced. Seemingly opposites in many ways, these two have produced films that are unmistakably of a single temperment and intellect where the technique is always at the service of a single mind and perspective. It is this trait which is common in all great art. Watch "Barry Lyndon" and "Vincent & Theo" or etc. and you"ll see what the Hell I'm talking about. -- 11/19/98

Gerold Holbytan
Kubrick is a technically gifted, sardonic witted yet hopelessly intellectually barren film hack who depends on his dubious "legendary" status to give his films weight. I suspect Kubricks supporters are attracted by his sterile monotony, as one is transfixed by one of those oversived pendulums that knockover circles of pegs in science museums in great sweeping predictable arcs. His films are tales of static shots and meaningful glances, signifying nothing. -- 11/19/98

I recently purchased the DVD of DR. STRANGELOVE, advertised as "widescreen" by Columbia TriStar Home Video. Parts of the film fill the TV screen (1.33:1) and parts are "letterboxed" in a 1.66:1 frame. There's a small note on the packaging that claims the film was shot in "multi-aspect ratio." Does anyone know if this is true? I've never heard of such a thing. Perhaps parts were shot in England using the European standard (1.66:1) and parts were shot in the U.S. using the old film frame of 1.33:1, although I believe that was pretty much out of use by 1964. Or maybe Columbia just did a sloppy job of putting the DVD together. Are there any experts on this film among you who can provide an answer? -- 11/26/98

Kubrick is the all-time best and always will be! All of his films were dynamically ahead of their time, and all of his work is extremely artistic! I see him as the most talented Director in the history of film. All of his movies bear his styles of angles, writing, and filming, and every one of them is a masterpiece. -End of Line- -- 12/03/98

First - Bill Brasky - so ther's a helicopter shot in the credits to 'The Shining': what makes anyone think this is a mistake ? How else do you think it was filmed ? Second - Steven Bliss - yes, 'Dr Strangelove' was shot in multi-ratio, as was 'Lolita' with the subsequent US video releases supervised and approved by Stanley Kubrick himself (check the 'Lolita' page on this website). Third - and best of all - a friend (yes, I know it sounds corny, but bear with me a little) who has been working with Kubrick for two years as a lighting technician told me some time ago a story which I found hard to take, but which I have now heard again from an entirely different source: that 'Eyes Wide Shut' was actually completed almost a year ago, and Kubrick kept it quiet so that he could go straight on to 'AI' without any interruption or media pressure. The stories that Harvey Keitel and Jennifer Jason Leigh were replaced on 'EWS' are bogus since they actually completed their parts as arranged - Keitel first because he had a committment to another picture. The so-called 'replacements' - Sydney Pollack, Marie Richardson, Thomas Gibson - are actually in the cast of 'AI' which also stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman - which explains why they stayed on in London for so long. Kubrick apparently has 'AI' all but in the can, and plans to release BOTH movies simultaneously, playing on alternate nights/weeks in theatres. Warner Brothers are saaid to be uneasy about this, as they fear that one pic will overshadow the other and they will lose out (Warners incidentally deny all of this - but then they would wouldn't they ?) Anyone else able to double-confirm this ? I'm pretty sure in my own head that it's true - given the sources - but another voice saying 'yeah' wouldn't hurt.... -- 12/03/98

Since more than a year and a half we're making a documentary about film director Stanley Kubrick for the Italian TV. Maybe you remember it: we shot important material about Kubrick's work, meeting people like Michel Ciment, Malcolm McDowell, Jane Campion, friends, collaborators, and so on. Mr. Kubrick was informed about our work by his friend Warner executive Mr. Julian Senior. Of course we'll not bother him anyway, but because our last journey schedule to London and the UK (July, 9) was not possible, we're going to do it right now (since Dec., 29). We'll stay for a few days in London and St. Albans, Hertfordshire - to "breathe" Kubrick's air - and possibly shooting on streets around his house while the new year and century are starting. We'll be grateful if anyone could suggest us people to meet who can be interviewed there (because they know him, for example): ANYONE WHO COULD TELL US A STORY ABOUT HIS PERSONAL INVOLVEMENT OR SOMETHING ABOUT KUBRICK. We're also looking for places to go in UK where recently EYES WIDE SHUT was shot, and generally all locations in UK where Kubrick's films were made (famous Beckton Gas Works or what remains of, some old houses near London - about EWS -, etc.). If anyone can give us some advice about, we'll be grateful. > > Stefano Landini > > Docu-film "Stanley and Us" > > RAIDUE (2nd national Italian TV channel) -- 12/13/98

RE: "Cruiser"'s comments about EYES WIDE SHUT/AI... wether or not it's actually true... I seem to recall someone mentioning the ending of EWS takes place in a *toy store* - now if that isn't an obvious nod/intro to AI then I don't know what is... And Kubrick does seem to be taking an awful long time for what should really only be a "talking heads" film... If he's not presently working on AI let's hope he lives long enough to actually make it someday... -- 12/15/98

CLOCKWORK ORANGE - STANLEY KUBRICK REAL HORRORSHOW One of the best films I have ever seen. Being from the UK this film is not on release - in fact very few people under the age of 45 have ever seen it which I think is ridiculous. Compared to some current releases this film is not controversial and would easily receive a UK censorship. Things have changed since 1972... -- 12/19/98

I saw The Shining in year 1993. I didn't then know anything about Stanley Kubrick. The Shining was wonderful film and I got more interested about Kubrick's films, so I watched A Clockwork Orange from the movie channel which broadcasted in Scandinavia few years ago. Õ were stunned. The movie was absolutely stunnig and the actors and the story was perfect. I think Stanley KUbrick is the best director in the world. I think my favoutite Kubrick film is The Shining. I have only seen the 115 minutes running version of it. I wonder what is the 142 minutes running version like? -- 12/23/98
