We are totally on cinema now… So i decided to talk a little about one of my favorite directors. I talked a bit about auteurs in my other post but this one is about actual direction and Kubrick is probably the most director of all directors. Starts by the way he chooses his stories. Those are not his stories but ones he decided to bring to life on the big screen. Dr. Strangelove, 2001, Clockwork orange, Shinning, Lolita,Spartacus and Barry Lindon among others. Some of the best films ever were done by him. He was a real obsessive and everyone who worked with him says it was really hard. What most don’t know is that he got stuck on his own trap. In the 80’s after Full Metal Jacket he couldn’t find a story he liked to direct. The researchers found a big room like those from psychos movies with thousands of papers written by him searching for ideas. They found out he got really obsessed about this and some say he became a kind of inmate for years. After giving us all those amazing films he still wasn’t done with it. He wanted much more. I know many directors made more movies than him but i’m not talking about quantity. I’m talking about quality. After making those movies he was able to deliver even better things? How to deliver better after Clockwork Orange? I think it’s impossible. Ok…Not better just different. Still it could not be just your everyday subject. The guy was really picky. I guess the question remaining is: Since he died making his last Movie “Eyes wide shut” was that movie we watched on the theaters with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman his final piece??? Or just part of it? The part his team was able to put together? What that his last statement?
