Hey! I have a question... I've noticed in "2001," "A Clockwork Orange," "The Shining" that a character has a seizure at the turning point... what does that mean? I thought it would be a stylistic choice, symbolic... but I'm not sure. Any ideas?

Or by contacting (818) 889-8061

There will be another series in October tentatively featuring: Halloween, Evil Dead, Night of the Living Dead, The Exorcist, and Rosemary's Baby. If this, the Kubrick series, sells well, and the October series does also, more will definitely follow. The host, Andrew (you'll see him at the theatre), is accepting and seriously considering film recommendations, so let him know what you'd like to see in the future.

hi, i'm new. the first Kubrick film i ever watched was "The Shining" and i was amazingly haunted by it.
after that came "A clockwork orange" & "Full metal jacket". by then i was already completely fascinated with the work of such a talented director.
i bought "A clockwork orange" by Anthony Burgess and i could also see why Kubrick wanted to make a film about it. the book is fantastic, but in my opinion, the film is even better.

New here . . . Yadda yadda.
First Kubrick film I saw was 2001. I don't think I understood it then. I became a punk rocker . . . so Clockwork orange was the next step for me. I have seem most of his films . . . but I have to say that Lolita and Strangelove are 2 of my "more" favorite ones. I think it is because of Peter Sellers really . . . anyway . . . new here . . . yadda yadda.

Hey everyone. I am new to the community but I am a pretty big fan of Kubrick. My fav movie he has done is Full Metal Jacket. Two of his movies that I havent seen yet are A Clockwork Orange, and 2001: A Space Odyssey. Just wanted to know which one I should watch first...

Good Evening
New member here, so I'll tell a little about myself.

My name's Richie and I'm from Pa, where I study psychology. My favourite Kubrick films would have to be 2001: A Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orange. In fact, I'm two steps from obsession dealing with 2001. I've read 2001 and am currently reading 2010.

That's about it.

See you all around.

I've been a member for a while now, but this is my first time posting.
My three favorite Stanley Kubrick films are The Killing (it almost seemed like the perfect crime. and that 2-bit sleeze of a wife was something else, lmao), The Shining (Jack Nicholson was darn good in this one. actually had me scared), and Eyes Wide Shut. I've always wanted to see Dr. Strangelove and Lolita though.

I didn't even know about Kubrick until I took a film studies class at WSU. After that, I became a total Kubrick fan:) and I ♥ his work and talent as a director. I even changed my minor to film studies because I want to do some awesome work like that.

From Eyes Wide Open: A memoir of Stanley Kubrick and Eyes Wide Shut by Frederic Raphael.

      My first assistant was Derek Cracknel. On the first day, we were in the middle of shooting the first scene during a huge storm when some incidental noise became audible. Derek immediately shouted "cut". He was, I dare say, right to avoid wasting time, but I sensed a crisis of authority. In principle, no one on the set says 'cut' except the director. Mark Rydell told me once how, on The Cowboys, "Duke" Wayne had taken it upon himself to yell 'cut' when a stampede started going in the wrong direction. Mark knew he had to face Wayne down, and did; he had no more trouble. Rite de passage, am I right?
      I said, "Derek, I'm sure you had good reason, but you do know - don't you? - that the only thing I really do on this set is say 'action' and 'cut'. I don't want to hear anyone else saying my lines again, if that's all right with you."
      Once I told Stanley Kubrick this story, he said, "You got away with talking to him like that?" One day, on Stanley's set (during the making, I believe, of The Shining) Derek was making a longer fuss than usual about some delaying detail and Stanley finally said, "Derek, piss off, willya?"
      Derek pissed right off.
      At the end of the day, Stanley said, "Where's Derek? Something the matter?"
      One of the unit said, "Well, sir, you told him to piss off. And he has. For good."
      Stanley said, "Surely he knows all I meant was fuck off."

Much time seems to elapse between posts here.
Much like the films of the man himself. Of course, when his films finally did come out they had much more to say than this post.

Hello New member
I've been a huge fan of Kubrick since I was thirteen and first saw A Clockwork Orange with my parents.
Since that fateful day I have been just this side of a nutcase about anything kubrick, and even begging my local video rental place to get copies of Lolita and full metal jacket. (still waiting on the latter.)

I also am a huge tom cruise fan but strangely enough when buzz started about Eyes my first thought was "Cool a New Kubrick Film." followed by my girlish screams of glee that it then also had Tom in it but i digress.

My favorite kubrick is hard to name, clockwork is always near the top usually constantly swapping position with Dr. Strangelove, all though lately with some of the political climates in my world they're sharing the position for number one right now. 2001 is usually next after those two, followed by Eyes and the rest sort of jumble together as "oh yeah that's Kubrick too..."

so anyways Hi!
