Stanley Kubrick series

“How did they make a movie out of Lolita? teased the print ads of this Stanley Kubrick production. The answer: by adding three years to the title character's age. The original Vladimir Nabokov novel caused no end of scandal by detailing the romance between a middle-aged intellectual and a 12-year-old nymphet.

"It's gorgeous to look at, with its reverse zooms that slowly widen to stunning rural panoramas, its beautiful framing, its delight in decorative detail. You feel you are watching a masterclass in how to recreate the look and feel of the late 18th century." - Sunday Times

“‘I demand satisfaction!’ These words echo throughout Stanley Kubrick’s sedate, sumptuous eighteenth-century satire, as men in outrageous frocks challenge one another to pistols at dawn over matters of love and honour.

Stanley Kubrick series. "Kubrick's final film is unique in his oeuvre for concluding on a note of apparent affirmation." - Film Comment

“As an epilogue to the career of Stanley Kubrick who died within days of delivering the finished film, Eyes Wide Shut is just about perfect in that it is unmistakably, definitely Kubrickian.  A psychological probing of marriage, desire, jealousy and sexual paranoia. This is about the reality of sexual love versus its illusions.

Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of Anthony Burgess' novel is an operatic riot of language, style, and biting satire, with a legendary Wendy Carlos/Beethoven soundtrack.

Special intro Wed. night: The Paintings of Alex Colville in The Shining

"A masterpiece." In accordance with the Kubrick legend, the process of making the movie took meticulousness to staggering levels.The result is gloriously precision-made. Every frame of the film brims with Kubrick's genius for implying psychological purpose in setting. This was horror of the mind transposed to place (or, indeed, vice versa).
