Interesting quasi-homage to Stanley Kubrick's early career
6 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Its odd why the filmmakers chose, out of all movies, Stanley Kubrick's little known second feature film, "Killer's Kiss", as the basis for this fascinating inside look into the making of a small budget movie, but I'm glad they did, because I'm a big Kubrick admirer, and this is a must for all Kubrick fans.

The movie goes inside the making of the film, but it also features a parallel love story of the lead actors and the lead actress' jealous boyfriend, just like in Kubrick's film.

The ending is a classic one too. In true Kubrick form, the movie ends on a sad, yet interesting note, a total 180 of the film its based on. Also, it ends with the Kubrick-like director character pitching his next movie idea, about a group of people trying to pull off a heist in a casino (as opposed to a racetrack like in Kubrick's classic follow-up, "The Killing").

I loved this movie! Not only was it a fascinating insight into the making of a film, but it was also about what Kubrick was like in his early filmmaking days.
