Stanley Kubrick’s Lost Script ‘Burning Secret’ Set for Auction, Draws ‘Lolita’ and ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ Comparisons

Stanley Kubrick’s Lost Script ‘Burning Secret’ Set for Auction, Draws ‘Lolita’ and ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ Comparisons
“Burning Secret,” the long lost Stanley Kubrick script that was discovered over the summer, is being auctioned off later this month at Bonhams New York, Deadline reports. The original manuscript is expected to sell in the $20,000 region, so now the question remains whether or not anyone in the film industry will jump at the chance to buy the script and turn it into a feature film.

As reported earlier this year, “Burning Secret” is an adaptation of Stefan Zweig’s novella of the same name. Kubrick co-wrote the script with Calder Willingham in 1956, shortly before making “Paths of Glory.” The script was discovered by Bangor University film professor Nathan Abrams, and while many would assume studios would jump at the chance to make the film (Netflix just released Orson Welles’ long-delayed “The Other Side of the Wind”), the film’s subject matter is controversial.

Abrams has described “Burning Secret” as “the inverse of ‘Lolita,

‘Lost’ Stanley Kubrick Script ‘Burning Secret’ Up For Auction; Would A Film Or TV Company Bite On It Today?
Long-lost Stanley Kubrick script Burning Secret is up for auction at Bonhams New York on 20 November. The original manuscript is expected to fetch in the region of $20,000.

The script, which has been certified by Kubrick experts, is said to be virtually complete, begging the question, would a film or TV company take it on today? We’ve just had a semi-complete Orson Welles movie pieced together, after all.

Entitled Burning Secret, the script is an adaptation of the 1913 novella by the acclaimed and often-adapted Austrian writer Stefan Zweig. In Kubrick’s adaptation of the story, a suave insurance salesman befriends a 10-year-old boy at a spa resort so he is able seduce the child’s married mother. In Zweig’s original, the story is set in Austria but Kubrick’s script transfers the story to America of the 1950s with American characters.

10 Sweetest Donut Scenes in Movies and TV, From ‘The Simpsons’ to ‘Full Metal Jacket’ (Videos)
Happy #NationalDonutDay, or as we like to call it, Friday. Whether it’s glazed, sprinkled, jelly filled, or in the case of those revolting eclairs from “Van Wilder,” (gulp) dog semen, we’ll take a donut over a croissant or the heartiest of bagels any day. And these colorful treats always look good on screen, so this round lifesaver has found its way into some particularly famous moments of movies and TV. To quote Homer Simpson, “Donuts, is there anything they can’t do?”

Full Metal Jacket

Rip R. Lee Ermey. Only he could find a way to make the donut the ultimate motivational tool in this chilling scene from Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket.”

Zootopia

Among all the creative, memorable moments in Disney’s “Zootopia,” this delightful one of Officer Hopps chasing down a robber through the tiny mouse town stands out for Officer Hopps’s donut heroics.

Kevin Tricks The Hotel Staff In Home Alone 2 With Full Metal Jacket

Someone went and re-edited the hotel staff scene in Home Alone 2 with audio clips from Full Metal Jacket, and the scene is made exponentially better in this version. Of course, this version would never fly in a film for children, and the original scene is good enough. That’s mostly due to Tim Curry, who sells the scene equally as well in the video belowl.

H. Jon Benjamin Tweets ‘Me So Horny’ Joke, Quickly Apologizes
H. Jon Benjamin, famous for his voice work on shows like “Archer” and “Bob’s Burgers,” is used to making people laugh. So it probably came as a surprise when his latest attempt at a Twitter joke fell flat: “Quick idea for the name of a tea shop- ‘ooh me so horny, me love you oolong time tea shop.’” The tweet has thus far received more than 100 responses, most of them negative — a Twitter phenomenon often referred to as The Ratio.

Originating as a line in Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket,” “me so horny” has been used as an Asian stereotype in the decades since the film’s release. Following the reactions to his tweet, Benjamin apologized within hours: “Sorry I offended many. I agree this ‘joke’ was lazy and incompetent and formulated quickly while making a cup of oolong tea,” he wrote.

Vincent D'Onofrio Goes From Hitman To Crime Boss In New TV Series 'Godfather Of Harlem'

Playing men of power is nothing new for Vincent D'Onofrio, who continues to portray Wilson Fisk (aka the Kingpin) on the Marvel Netflix superhero series Daredevil, and the Wizard of Oz himself in the short-lived, dramatic NBC fantasy show Emerald City. Well, the actor is ready to take on another such role — though grounded considerably more than the others in reality — this time starring opposite Forest Whitaker on the Epix television true crime series Godfather of Harlem. Given a straight to series order by the network, the show sees Vincent as Vincent "Chin" Gigante, a former boxer who few take seriously... but should. He appears dimwitted, but his mind is always working — to the point where he feigns insanity to avoid prosecution, and the series will chart his rise in the Genovese crime family as a hitman to, ultimately, boss of the family.

Telluride Film Review: ‘Boy Erased’

Telluride Film Review: ‘Boy Erased’
Who benefits from gay conversion therapy? Do the parents, who send their queer and questioning kids to be “cured” of their same-sex attractions? Do the young people who are brainwashed into denying the urges they believe to be sinful? Does God? The answer, at least according to Joel Edgerton’s earnestly anti-heteronormative drama “Boy Erased,” appears to be that only the charlatans who run such camps seem to thrive, while everyone else winds up hating themselves.

Boy Erased” isn’t the first film to share an insider’s perspective of how these camps operate. It’s not even the first film this year: An empowering, female-driven look at such a facility, “The Miseducation of Cameron Post” won the dramatic competition at Sundance. But Edgerton takes a different, more respectful tone to the subject, not outright ridiculing those who believe that homosexuality is a choice, but preaching to the converted all

Filmworker

Stanley Kubrick had a dedicated assistant, and not one who simply held the master’s cinematic paintbrushes. He staffed research, production, post-production and marketing departments all on his own. Tony Zierra’s brisk documentary teaches us much about a genius director, the assistant that devoted himself entirely to the director’s mission, and the nature of work and ambition.

Vincent D’Onofrio Asks Twitter Followers If It’s Ok to Play an ‘Irredeemable Racist’ Right Now

Vincent D’Onofrio asked his Twitter followers on Sunday whether it would be Ok for him to play an “irredeebable racist” in an upcoming project given the current political climate.
