Quotes

Jack Nicholson: Anything you do as many times as a successful actor, you can't have one set of theories, you know. You can go for years saying "I'm gonna get this thing real", because they really haven't seen it real, do you know? They just keep seeing one fashion of unreal after the other that passes as real and you, you know, you go mad with realism and then you come up against someone like Stanley who says, "Yeah, it's real but it's not interesting."

Give me some more!!!
13 June 2004 | by (Russia.) – See all my reviews

First of all I want to thank Stanley's daughter for finally showing us the Master at work. Though only 35 minutes long this short documentary manages to reveal us the secret (though only a bit) of Kubrick's movie making. We don't see a man who commands his actors by giving them orders, as some people may think of Stanley, we see a simple man, who, what is hard to believe, talks and walks, and makes jokes just like everyone else. We see a man who is a friend of his actors, he isn't rude with them, we see how he behaves when one(Duvall actually) spoils a set-up.

This documentary is an amateur work, but still, this is the only video material on which we can see Mr.Kubrick at work. Thanks at lest for that!
