Summary
Referred to as 'the grandmaster of film making' by Steven Spielberg in his foreword to this celebration of his life, Stanley Kubrick's output totalled only 13 features, but their variety and impact surpassed many, more prolific, directors. In this book, his widow pays tribute to his talent.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: 'Stanley Kubrick was the grandmaster of film making', says Steven Spielberg in his Foreword to this lavishly illustrated celebration of the legendary film director. 'He copied no one while all of us were scrambling to imitate him' The variety of his work - a mere 13 features since 1953 - is astonishing; the powerful Great War movie PATHS OF GLORY; the multistar epic SPARTACUS; the black humour of LOLITA; the nightmarish satire of DR STRANGELOVE; the serene visual beauty of 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY; the violent expression of A CLOCKWORK ORANGE; Jack Nicholson in THE SHINING; FULL METAL JACKET (where an East London gasworks was used as a set for the Vietnam War); EYES WIDE SHUT with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in 1999; and finally the posthumous production of A.I (Artificial Intelligence) directed by Spielberg in 2001. Kubrick's monument is his movies, and this book is a vibrant equivalent to them.
