Kubrick definitely was inspired by Welles. But Kubrick took things to a whole next level. There are so many things in movies (and pop culture) we take for granted that Kubrick created.Originally posted by OhNo!
...and kubrick wasn't drawing on welles for alot of his ideas?
I've seen all his feature length films but two of his earlier ones ("The Killing" and "Fear And Desire"), and I don't think I could pick a favourite. "Dr. Strangelove", "Lolita", "A Clockwork Orange", "2001: A Space Odessey", "Full Metal Jacket", "The Shining" are all my favourites of his, for different reasons. I don't think I could pick between one of those being better than the others.Originally posted by Boss Hog
BBB have you seen the rest and what's your fave?
I liked Barry Lyndon. It had a nice ironic tone pervading the whole thing. And I thought the cinematography was quite pleasurable. Also, the themes that he plays with, the way he gets your mind working is brilliant. And that final duel was amazing, so much tension!Originally posted by el presidente Highsteppa
While Barry Lyndon was an extreme bore...
Eyes Wide Shut I don't think it was Kubrick's fault nor vision. It was incomplete and was put out by the studio despite that fact
