Stanley Kubrick – A Life in Pictures
The career and life of Stanley Kubrick is explored through pictures, clips from his films, his old home movies, comments from his colleagues and a narration by Tom Cruise.
The director of this film, Jan Harlan, a long-time producer for Stanley Kubrick, recently introduced the film at the second annual Traverse City Film Festival. He said if a film really needs an introduction, then something is wrong. This film is a fascinating biography of one of film’s best known directors, having directed such diverse films as “Dr. Strangelove,” to “2001: A Space Odyssey.” It is unfortunate that language prevents us from awarding our Dove Seal to this film, but we cannot approve it for families. It should be noted that there are strong sexual images too, especially in “Dr. Strangelove,” and “A Clockwork Orange.”
