It's good propaganda.

it's great except for woody allen's comments. it's like he's saying what he thinks we want to hear. "the directing of strangelove was the best"??? that's sum inane shit.

highlights include scorsese on strangelove, and his echo of his lyndon comments from the American Cinema special he did. what else, oh yeah his family, that's pretty insightful. the home movies of him as a kid is priceless. too bad they didn't get vivian to talk, she's really charming in the Making of The Shining commentary.

my favorite portion is the behind the scenes of The Shining, with Kubrick bitching the hell out of Shelley Duvall.  "You're wasting everyone's time!"  i liked duvall's interview too...i'm pretty partial to the shining anyway...it's my favorite kubrick.

not to get off topic from the Doc, but no need to start a new thread.

i seem to remember reading that Ridley Scott was possibly involved in filming Napoleon? am i dreaming this or not?


It isn't bad enough that Spielberg fucked up AI. Now Ridley Scott is going to take a crack at a Kubrick script? Thats lovely. I'm sure Stanley is rolling in his grave.

hmmm...no.  y'know, i don't think you secretly met with kubrick over the course of several years like he did.  everyone who was close to kubrick and was close to this project said that spielberg's film would have very much pleased stanley.  jan harlan said it, so did christian, so did vivian, etc....enough of this pointless spielberg bashing already, his movie was fine .

do u always freak out over rumors u read on an interweb message board? i doubt ridley is gonna do a napoleon movie, i've never heard that before, and if he does it's pretty certain that he wouldn't use Kubrick's script.

Christiane Kubrick, Harlan and Scorsese are interviewed by Charlie Rose, don't know about you but when it aired I never saw it, haven't seen it myself yet but it should be good.

that was excellent, thanks.

not all new information but if you hav patience you'll hear at least a couple stories you may not hav heard before. the best parts are the admiration shown for the shin, lyndon, and EWS. also jan and christiane's stories about his private life, the wimbledon anecdote, the vatican screening of 2001, the metamorphosis of EWS from a "furious" film to a "wise" one, that kubrick loved the internets, online chess, gossip, his love for The Emigrants and The New Land.. it's great to hear all those little stories.

it should be clear to any reasonable person that kubrick is absolutely not an impenetrable mystery. we have available to us enough material, primarily from his films and other resources, to understand the man as fully as a peron can be understood. what the popular media might have wanted to (and still kind of does) proliferate, and by extension what most ppl believe about him, is simply not true. he was extremely generous -- his films are personal to the point where they become universal. unfortunately there is still a lack of films of any sort in existence that are as worthy of admiration and meditation.

too bad scorsese never met him.

i believe this airs on TCM tonight along with some of his films.

TCM has been doing a director's thing lately where they show one director's movies one night.

i caught some of the Bergman, Truffaut and Scorsese nights.

Photographer Dmitri Kasterine's best shot
Source: The Guardian

I took this in 1969, during the filming of A Clockwork Orange. I think it was on location in Kingston, London, but I can't remember exactly what was being shot that day. The structure you can see is a camera platform, and we were sheltering from the rain underneath it. I was chatting with Stanley Kubrick, and I thought to myself: there's a picture here.

I waited until Stanley paused, and put his hand up to stroke his hair back from his eyes then I just took it. I didn't have to set the focus as I had a wide-angle lens; I knew, so long as I had the right exposure, the depth of field was enough. The camera he's holding is his Arriflex. It was for handheld work: lightweight, and stripped down to the camera body and lens.

The minute after I got the shot, there was a creaking and straining, and the platform collapsed. Stanley never normally rushed and was the calmest of men, but he was out of there like a bolting rabbit. I'd never seen anything so quick.

This was the third of Kubrick's films I worked on: I'd also been on set for Dr Strangelove and 2001: A Space Odyssey. I was what they call a "special", brought in for 30 or 40 days for a specific purpose. I was taking pictures of the crew because Stanley had an idea he would use them for the title sequence, but he didn't in the end. He never gave me any particular instructions; he once told me that he asked me to work for him because I "stood in the right place".

Before the days of digital, you had to rely on the feeling you had when you took a picture that it would be all right. I like this one very much. It's unusual to have someone's feet so prominent, but it doesn't take away from his expression. He was the least lazy of men, but there's something very relaxed about the pose.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.
