Unwrapping and Unearthing Kubrick's Napoleon

12 December 2009 6:25 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

There was that long stretch between 1987's Full Metal Jacket and 1999's Eyes Wide Shut where Stanley Kubrick was missing in action. The master filmmaker was passionate enough about a little Frenchman going by the name of Napoleon that he devoted years to a film project that never came to fruition. Taschen books who've already put out a couple of books honoring the legend, have put out the unthinkable: a limited edition collection of books (including the original screenplay) just in time for Xmas. - There was that long stretch between 1987's Full Metal Jacket and 1999's Eyes Wide Shut where Stanley Kubrick was missing in action.

Not tonight, Stanley Kubrick

Philip French takes delivery of a 22lb history of Napoleon, Kubrick's 'film that never was' and finds a fascinating exploration of historical film-making

A boxed book landed on my doorstep the other day, too big to go down a rubbish chute let alone through any conceivable letter box. The book's size (12x15x5in and weighing 22lb) made me think of the Rosetta Stone which is appropriate because its provenance is Napoleonic and it's in three languages (English, German, French). The outer, leather-bound volume is a facsimile of Raymond Guyot's gigantic Napoléon (Paris, 1921), but upon untying the leather cords, one discovers the inside has been carved out to contain the eight assorted volumes of Stanley Kubrick: The Film that Never Was, edited by the Paris-based American film scholar Alison Castle, designed by the French partnership M/M (Paris), and published by Taschen at a breathtaking £450.

Recession Proof Kubrick

27 February 2009 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- My coffee table is already cluttered enough with Taschen and now, Jeffrey Wells had to point to something that Kubrick fans such as myself will want to splurge on. It's called Stanley Kubrick, the Napoleon Film  and looks at the Kubrick's creative process in terms of how he went about researching his subject. Let's just say it was extensive. So damn you to Wells, to the Kubricks and to Taschen for this future pinch in my wallet. The book which will set you several criterion collection discs back is apparently only available here is the Amazon pre-order info. This book features the greatest film never made. It features Kubrick's unfilmed masterpiece. Tucked inside of a carved-out book, all the elements from Stanley Kubrick's archives that readers need to imagine what his unmade film about the emperor might have been like, including a fascimile of the script; a unique art object, »
