Kubrick Retrospective at LACMA (yes, I’m way too late posting this…)
1 - Fear And Desire (USA, 1953)**.
Not a great movie, but I understand why Kubrick wanted it out of theaters, and tried to acquire all of its prints so that people wouldn’t be able to go see it. It has some great ideas and it looks great. But that’s all.
2- Killer’s Kiss (USA, 1955)***.
3- 2001: A Space Odyssey (U.K, USA, 1968)*****.
4- Barry Lyndon (U.K, USA, 1975)*****.
5- Eyes Wide Shut (U.K, USA, 1999)****.
The Shining (U.S.A, 1980)****.
That time of the year I have to watch The Shining and read about Kubrick mistreating the awsome Shelly Duvall.
PS: Was she doing coke in that bit of the ‘Making Of’ where Kubrick says; “It doesn’t help Shelly”?
“Evil Dead - The Whole Movie.”
