Stanley Kubrick holds a unique place in the history of cinema. He is, for many, the greatest of all filmmakers, whilst also, inarguably, one of the greatest and most enigmatic of artists of the 20th century in any medium.
His ability to convey bold and complex ideas to a mass audience, coupled with his now legendarily meticulous approach to his craft, produced films that were rich in meaning and which have had unparalleled influence. He only made 12 feature films, 13 if you count the film he preferred to forget, the “bumbling amateur film exercise” Fear and Desire, not showing here.
