3. Barry lyndon
Also is he a hack or a genius?
1. Eyes Wide Shut
2. A clockwork orange
He is neither a hack or a genius.
He is a very very talented director, a visionnary but to me, his films lack some gut, some emotion though Eyes Wide Shut felt a little different in the way.
2001 is the most overrated film of all time. Requires absolutely no brainpower and isn't worth thinking about after, you just have to sit there and watch the pretty visuals. It's fucking garbage. A film for the wannabe patrician who would probably enjoy Michael Bay movies if they weren't so normie.
these are trolls, right?
Exactly, I would even say that 2001:A Space Odyssey is quite simply the worst thing to happen to cinema ever. Its forced profundity has caused millions of people all over the world to force themselves to like what is quite simply nothing more than an exercise in style.
Kubrick has no idea what he is doing here. His film jumps around with little to no sense of unity. The great film makers of the world create a series of events that contain clarity of information, something Kubrick couldn't bet his life on.
What is the purpose of what is going on here? Is there any coherent message? I have heard suggestions that it is Kubrick's message about the future of humanity, but what future is that? Does Kubrick even know?
This is Transformers for the art house crowd. Pure style over substance. Nobody actually likes this film, they just like to be seen liking it.
I like it and also the film is not supposed to answer your questions whats the faith of humanity etc its supposed to raise more questions. Its a visual, stunning masterpiece definetely ahead of its time.
The idea for movie was created in conjunction with Arthur c. Clarke, and is meant to be watched along with reading the book 2001 a space odessy that Arthur wrote at the same time the movie came out
1. don't care
2. don't care.
3. wow, why don't you discover a second director you enjoy and stop spamming Kubrick every day for years on end
It's like every other 4channer is obsessed with Kubrick and Infinite Jest. What is this shit? Are you people robots?
