Stanley Kubrick

I find this man fascinating. I have seen almost all of his films. Each one has made an impact on me; Lolita, Full Metal Jacket, Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, Eyes Wide Shut and, of course, The Shining. I have a documentary about him made by his daughter, Vivian that just blows my mind. Poor Shelley Duvall went through hell filming the Shining, hundreds of takes just opening a door. It took over a year to film but it’s such a masterpiece even with all the changes from the novel. Anyway, my point is, I really love Stanley Kubrick. I love even more the behind the scenes of his films. So you can not understand my excitement that tomorrow *if the world fails to end at midnight* we will be heading to the Stanley Kubrick exhibit at LACMA. Here are some incredible photos from my Pinterest.

I’m normally not a fan of war films but Vincent D’Orofrio’s performance was amazing

A man of mystery, genius and great impatience

I really hope they allow cameras because I had to sneak my camera into the Tim Burton exhibit so I didn’t get many good shots. 

Have a great day.
