The Influence of Kubrick
17 May 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Standing on the Shoulders of Kubrick: The Legacy of 2001 (2007)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Dennis Muren, Ben Burtt, Jay Cocks, Roger Ebert, Peter Hyams, Anthony Frewen, Dan O'Bannon, Sydney Pollack, Ernest Dickerson and William Friedkin are among the people discussing their first impressions of seeing Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY and what impact it had on their careers.

If you're a fan of the Kubrick film or the filmmakers interviewed here then you'll certainly want to check out this 21 minute featurette that has all sorts of great stories told. The highlights are certainly hearing from filmmakers like Spielberg and Lucas as they talk about what their original thoughts were when they saw the film and how it would eventually influence something like STAR WARS. There's another great discussion where people talk about why Kubrick is perhaps the most important filmmaker in the history of cinema. There's a lot of great stuff here that fans will love.
