    Post Stanley Kubrick film discussion

    I am not a very big fan of cinema. But I must say that most films that Stanley Kubrick made, where quite good and always caught my attention with their message. One can look at his films from many different angles and relate them to many different topics.
    My favorite is 2001:A space Odyssey. I look at it from a religious prespective. Showing that man was created by evolution and not by god. Like the Monolith, Notice how when the main character tries to walk towards it, he is blinded, just like in the bible when Moses is blinded. Or when they try to take a picture of the monolith and a sound comes. I think that part has a meaning that says "God is faceless, and no matter what you can't take a picture of it".
    I'll be interested to see what messages other people in the forum got from his films.
    Just close your eyes...can you remember
    The generations not so long ago
    I feel the shameless urge that we must restore
    Our former king to his rightful throne
    And with me lords and maidens
    We wait for the chosen son's return

    I come alive
    It's a time for celebration
    Our will to restore
    Make our past become the futre once more

    Still he lives! 2000 years have passed
    And still we're yearning for his return
    We fulfill a wishful prohecy
    And so the chanting begins
    Hail Caesar...Hail Caesar...we render unto you
    What is still yours

    Thumbs Up Re: Stanley Kubrick film discussion

    My favourite of all his films is 'Barry Lyndon'... it has incredible production values, direction is perfect, the script is witty beyond imagination. It actually parodies the main character and mocks human nature all the time. The story takes place in the 18th century, a period I have absolutely no interest in, yet this film made it interesting.

    It's about the life of some guy who wanders the battlefields, courts and taverns of 18th century Europe. Experiences nostalghia, death, happiness, love, women, success, failures and everything else that makes a rich life. An Irishman who from a slave-soldier in Prussia becomes a spy and nobleman... everything is in this movie, and it's filled with subtext, memorable moments, laughs and emotions.

    AFAIK the movie is filmed completely using ONLY natural light. It gives the film an organic feel, and it makes it all the more authentic and immersive.

    Here are some impressive shots:



    You really need to see this film, life will make much more sense after you see it.

    I will try to get this film, sounds interesting.

    Dont know why they just play the worst films 3 times in a year on TV and the few good once a time in 5 years...

    You know, That is probably my least favorite film by Kubrick. Don't get me wrong, By any standards is it a bad film, I just don't think is as powerful as his other films. It has some really good scenes and lines.

    Barry Lyndon is my favourite Kubrick film. The lighting was fantastic, I agree, especially in the following scene, where the candles were the only source of light:



    The score of the film was exquisite, too. Kubrick was indeed a master of technique and historical accuracy.
    'Well, what are you?" said the Pigeon. "I can see you're trying to invent something!" "I-I'm a little girl," said Alice, rather doubtfully. She found herself at last in a beautiful garden, among the bright flower-beds and the cool fountains.

    Woah, it strikes me now that painters from ages past, Baroque ones especially, were so fascinated by dramatic lighting effects much because that's simply the world they lived in when indoors.
