Review Stanley Kubrick

IMO each of his films was a masterpiece of film making. I only like some not as much as others. But not one of those films I don't like would I call a dud.

Maybe there exist duds in his early work. I have not seen his films before Paths of Glory (1957). But then these are the films of his beginning. I think even a great director is allowed some duds in his early phase.

A Clockwork Orange used to be my favorite movie. I don't like it anymore. And the second half of Full Metal Jacket is awful (you can tell the setting is a small section of Britain, not Viet Nam) and cliched. And Eyes Wide Shut ... ugh

Kubrick’s “Secret” Script Up For Sale Soon


kubricks-secret-script-up-for-sale-soon-696x464.jpg


Stanley Kubrick’s long-lost script “Burning Secret” is going up for auction at Bonhams New York later this month with Deadline reporting that the screenplay is expected to fetch in the region of $20,000.

An adaptation of the 1913 novella by Austrian writer Stefan Zweig and dubbed an ‘inverse Lolita’, the story follows a suave insurance salesman who befriends a ten-year-old boy at a spa resort so he is able seduce the child’s married mother.

Penned in 1956 with American novelist Calder Willingham, with both going on to collaborate on “Paths Of Glory” the following year, Kubrick’s version transfers the story to America of the 1950s. Certified by Kubrick experts and said to be virtually complete, the question has been raised as to whether a film or TV company will be interested.

The talk comes as Orson Welles’ semi-complete final movie finally saw a release on Netflix last week.

I didn’t catch everything in that interview because the sound quality wasn’t great, but I think it’s funny he didn’t like Schindler’s List. I myself thought the ending was scmaltzy when I saw it.
