If you’ve missed the post about this on kottke.org and haven’t seen this yet, hey! Thanks for slumming.
This is a brilliantly edited, well-paced tribute to the films of Stanley Kubrick posted by barringer82 on YouTube. It’s amazing to watch Kubrick’s entire oeuvre (that word always makes me laugh) arranged in such a compelling manner; you really get a sense of Kubrick’s genius, how his films hone the absurdity, violence, madness, joy, and majesty of the human condition into a razor-sharp edge.
During my second year in college, as an escape from the drudgery of my biochemistry courses, I took a class titled, “The Films of Stanley Kubrick.” We watched every Kubrick film in the Palm Theater, the local independent movie house, and discussed each film in class. Our professor viewed Kubrick’s genius on par with the likes of John Milton and James Joyce. I’m inclined to agree.
