Stanley Kubrick, the man who made 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Shining, is one of the best known directors in cinematic history. Beginning in the creative arts as a photographer, he quickly realized he wanted to make movies and by 1957 he'd completed several documentaries and also narrative features, including the astounding Paths of Glory, an anti-war movie that starred Kirk Douglas. His career moved from highlight to highlight, from Spartacus to Lolita to Dr. Strangelove to 2001: A Space Odyssey to A Clockwork Orange to Barry Lyndon to The Shining to Full Metal Jacket to Eyes Wide Shut, his final effort. As a filmmaker, he was revered for his exquisite taste and his affinity for provocative subject matter, which attracted big audiences in theaters and has inspired intense...

Ana Lily Amirpour’s second feature shoots for Harmony Korine meets Mad Max and would have nearly almost hit the mark were it not for the gratingly aloof attitude and the swaths of directorial license being taken. The Bad Batch — an ambitious, expansive dystopian sci-fi western which features partying, drugs, and cannibals — might come as music to the ears of diehard fans of films like Spring Breakers and Gummo (a kid doesn’t quite eat spaghetti in a bathtub, but a kid does eat spaghetti after being in a bathtub). However, beneath its dazzlingly hip surface the script and characters leave much to be desired. It’s like taking a trip to Burning Man: a pseudo-spiritual, uniquely punky experience perhaps, but one that’s full of annoying rich kids and ultimately emotionally shallow.

Plenty of celebrity families dress up every year for Halloween, but one brood that really takes the holiday seriously is Nicole Richie's. Not only does the fashion designer deck out her home with skulls and pumpkins, but she gets her whole family in on the costume fun. Throughout the years, we've seen Nicole pay tribute to A Clockwork Orange with Joel Madden and dress up like a cat with little sister Sofia Richie, and in 2014, she and her mini mes, daughter Harlow and son Sparrow, channeled Cruella de Vil and the 101 dalmatians. We can't wait to see what she comes up with this year!

In between a personal statement about his new work and a Kanye West poem about McDonalds, Ocean also listed his favorite films of all-time and we have the full list today.
Clocking at 207.23 hours, as Ocean notes, his list includes classics from Andrei Tarkovsky, David Lynch, Ingmar Bergman, Stanley Kubrick, Martin Scorsese, Orson Welles, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Jean Cocteau, Alfred Hitchcock, Francis Ford Coppola, Fritz Lang, Werner Herzog, Akira Kurosawa, Ridley Scott, Bernardo Bertolucci, Sergei Eisenstein, F.

Stanley Kubrick was a connoisseur of truly terrible men. In the midst of the Watergate decade, the era of My Lai, Salvador Allende and the Pentagon papers, when heroism was a bargain-basement deal, Kubrick’s heroes upped the ante in the antiheroic. Starting with Sterling Hayden in The Killing and James Mason’s Humbert Humbert in Lolita, Kubrick had long focused on the morally corrupt. A Clockwork Orange’s Alex, The Shining’s ghost-ridden Jack Torrance, even the rationally murderous computer Hal in 2001: A Space Odyssey, all trace a broader cultural shift towards the dishonourable and troubling protagonist. Perhaps the most ambiguous of this crew is charming Barry Lyndon. Played by Love Story’s all-American dreamboat, Ryan O’Neal, Barry is ostensibly the most attractive of all of Kubrick’s protagonists. »

There are a lot of adjectives you can use to describe Mr. Robot, but "hopeful" isn't usually one of them. No matter how you slice it, this is a place where loved ones turn up dead, no one's to be trusted, and people eat pills out of their own puke to make the pain go away. But this week's hour-long episode, entitled "eps2.2_init1.asec," (because Mr. Robot, people) is about as bright and shiny as this show is ever likely to get. We even see a real smile out of Elliot — no Adderall involved. »
Offering "Bioshock" and "Dishonored" style gameplay in "A Clockwork Orange" aesthetic, Compulsion Games and Microsoft have revealed a new gameplay trailer for their highly anticipated "We Happy Few" which will hit Xbox One and PC later in the year but is now available via Steam Early Access.
The story is set in a retro-futuristic 1964 in a city ravaged by war and rebuilt by delusionally happy people who must keep taking the drug 'Joy'. If the citizenry suspect you're not taking yours, you'll be forced to or be killed.
If you die, there's no reloading your save and you'll restart in a brand new city. You can customize the world to your liking, and play through using multiple characters and playstyles

There is hardly such thing as an underground movie anymore — except, perhaps, for the ones that have to go underground because they aren’t allowed to be shown. The rough, grainy, outlaw king of those is “C—sucker Blues.” Not because you can never see it, but because on the rare occasions when you can, it has acquired the aura of an unholy testament: the ultimate down and dirty peek behind the curtain of 1970s rock & roll excess. It’s the time capsule that keeps on giving because it’s still semi-buried.
In 1972, the Rolling Stones recruited photographer Robert Frank to shoot a fly-on-the-wall film of their up-and-coming U.S. tour after the release of “Exile on Main Street.” Frank had created the extraordinary cover art for “Exile,” that tawdry collage of photographs that merged the Stones in all their let-it-loose glory with an homage to the rootsy mysteries of Americana. »
