Storyline

A concise look at some of the more bizarre visual aspects of The Shining. Through interviews with collaborators, current filmmakers and authors, we'll examine how Kubrick used his unique brand of visual storytelling to convey madness, evil, and the power of the supernatural without relying on dialog or conventional exposition. As much as any film he ever made, The Shining illustrates Kubrick's talent for using the language of pure cinema to tell his stories. Written by Anonymous

Nice Look at Kubrick's Eye

Visions of Stanley Kubrick, The (2007)

*** (out of 4)

Seventeen-minute documentary takes a look at, as the title says, the visions of Kubrick. The documentary mainly focuses on how Kubrick started out as a photographer and many people comment that they believe his talents as this made a huge impact on his films. It's argued that these visions mixed with his need to do things in an original way are what made him so great as a director and I'm not sure how many people would disagree. Not only do we get to see classic shots from his movies but we also get to see a few photographs from his work at Time magazine. Ernest Dickerson, William Friedkin, George Lucas, Jack Nicholson and Sydney Pollack are among those interviewed and each give some interesting ideas on what the images on screen meant. I think Pollack makes the best sense out of everything when he discusses what certain lenses could do to a scene and how Kubrick knew this and would use it to bring him movies to life unlike what other directors were doing. At such a short time they really don't dig too deep into the ideas to Kubrick's visuals but fans of the director will want to check this out.
