About this item

If there remains any doubt Kubrick is one of the giants of the cinema of the 20th century cinema,The Stanley Kubrick Archives should dispel it, both through the revelations contained in the director’s own words and in the observations offered by his collaborators and critics.For fans this book will be the ultimate. For those less acquainted with the master filmmaker's work, or those who are not film buffs, this book will provide an unsurpassable introduction to the work of a visionary genius.This is the first book to explore Stanley Kubrick’s archives and the most comprehensive study of the filmmaker to date. In 1968, when Stanley Kubrick was asked to comment on the metaphysical significance of2001: A Space Odyssey, he replied: "It’s not a message I ever intended to convey in words.2001 is a nonverbal experience…. I tried to create a visual experience, one that bypasses verbalized pigeonholing and directly penetrates the subconscious with an emotional and philosophic content." The philosophy behind Part 1 ofThe Stanley Kubrick Archives borrows from this line of thinking: from the opening sequence ofKiller’s Kiss to the final frames of Eyes Wide Shut, Kubrick’s complete films are presented chronologically and wordlessly via frame enlargements. A completely nonverbal experience.The second part of the book brings to life the creative process of Kubrick’s filmmaking by presenting a remarkable collection of mostly unseen material from his archives, including photographs, props, posters, artwork, set designs, sketches, correspondence, documents, screenplays, drafts, notes, and shooting schedules.Accompanying the visual material are essays by noted Kubrick scholars, articles written by and about Kubrick, and a selection of Kubrick’s best interviews.
