Overview

Perhaps the most controversial filmmaker of his era, Stanley Kubrick has been awarded this honor based on only a dozen films in a career that spanned five decades. Kubrick once remarked: “If it can be written or thought, it can be filmed.” His ambitious masterpiece, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, revolutionized the way contemporary filmmakers would ever again “envision” their medium by inspiring a new generation of cutting-edge cinematic artists who facilitated even bolder technological innovation. But Stanley Kubrick’s contributions to film are much more than those of a sophisticated visual stylist. Rich in powerful social themes and nightmarish subtexts, his films, no matter what their genre, force viewers to confront startling aspects of human civilization.Excerpts from his greatest films will be screened and discussed. They will include:

DOCTOR STRANGELOVE2001: A SPACE ODYSSEYTHE SHINING and FULL METAL JACKET.
