very entertaining!
28 March 2005 | by (portugal) – See all my reviews

This indie-style documentary follows the journey of three Italian guys with an obsession for director Stanley Kubrick, who, in the narrator's words, they consider to be our century's Goethe. Without a defined plan, they crash in London and start making calls to interview people connected to Kubrick and his films. Their on-going struggle with budget limitations doesn't keep them from getting closer and closer to the figure of the director and slowly they make their way into the Fort itself, Stanley Kubrick's home.

Watch them as they hear the news of Stanley's death, as they try to get a place at an exclusive preview of "Eyes Wide Shut" and as they find themselves talking to studio big-shots with over-the-top personalities. Apart from the human interest angle (of the troubles of these friendly obsessive fans trying to make their documentary), the interviews of this hour long documentary present a serious portrait of the director and his films, through the words of those who worked with and were closest to him. Note that not all the interviews are part of this film. The authors collected a total of over forty interviews of which only segments made it to the final cut. The whole bulk of the interviews, seven hours and a half long, was cut up into 30 episodes aired on RAI (the Italian television network). I haven't seen these episodes myself (although I've seen the film more than once), but I'm sure they must be as interesting and entertaining as the film, if not more. Even though I enjoyed "Stanley and us", I couldn't help feeling that the material was cut short and could've gone a bit further in shedding some light over Kubrick's life and legacy, so I'd like to see the episodes. Finding them is another story... In any case, this is an interesting and, again, very entertaining film, especially for other Kubrick fans, no doubt.
