It crams a lot into 14 minutes
13 March 2011 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

If you are looking for an overall look at the films of Stanley Kubrick, then you need to keep on looking--as "The Art of Stanley Kubrick" is not such a film. Instead, it manages in a very tightly constructed 14 minutes to discuss Kubrick's rise from obscurity to his early short films to his features to his amazing film "Dr. Strangelove"--only about half-way through his career. However, I liked this as it gave a nice and different sort of look at the directing craft--showing a progression from one sort of project to another and another--how they all built upon themselves into making a master director. The only shortcoming I noticed is that it really lacked insight into the personality of Kubrick as well as his directing style. In particularly, it barely mentions his obsessive-compulsive way of shooting and re-shooting and re-shooting scenes--something that made him notorious and cost a fortune in overruns. Still, it's a very nice film and one worth seeing if you get the DVDs.
