the "evidence" used to claim Kubric was involved, along with cheney and rumsfeld, is a MOCKUMENTARY film.

NO!

The movie followed the book pretty close and was an accurate representation of Kings novel.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1152779


You're very wrong. Watch Kubrick's Odyssy. The movie was close to the novel except for some very key points that are undeniable.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3021517


Such as topiary animals that come to life!

Scared me!

1980, I still remember...

I gave up King books after that one!

I thought it was a movie about a writer who goes crazy baby sitting a hotel over the winter? Could be wrong, haven't watched it in a long time.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14318781


Obviously his clues must be well hidden as HIS LIFE WAS AT RISK.
Apparently they weren't hidden well enough in "Eyes Wide Shut" which did cost him his life. They way they butchered the original movie could indicate that there were many hidden clues beyond the few that were picked up in it.

Stanley Kubric was brilliant I realise this even more now that I've seen this outline.
 Quoting: felixq78


I never realized this before, but Eyes Wide Shut, like Kubrick's other films, was also based on a book.

Traumnovelle, or Dream Story (english) written in 1926.

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

Haven't read the novella, but seems the biggest difference would be the time and place, He set the movie in modern times and in New York. Would be interesting to see how else he changed the written work and how possibly it fit with his alterior agenda.

As far as the final cut of Eyes Wide Shut, I wonderd how it would have actually been released had he lived to revise it. Some sources say that there likely wouldn't have been anything added, but rather cut out of it to shorten the length of the film.

The international version was much more graphic in the sexcapades while the US official release was altered by Warner Bros. to cut out or cover up some of the explicit sexual acts. (Infos out there, too graphic to post a link here)

I remember A Clockwork Orange the movie was in some ways very similar to the book, but was different primarily with some cinematic styling - such as the gangs clothing was changed to white instead of black, and included the weird eyelash under the eye. Other than that, the last chapter of the book was ommitted from the film - but then again, the last chapter wasn't widely available in all copies of the book at that time.

I have a hard time giving ultra-high payed pop authors and pop directors credit for being clever enough to put secret messages in their work. I spent 14 years in the film industry in Hollywood and have a different perspective on the "celebrity myth". And I also know that different directors have different roles and amounts of control over the end product of their "work".

Very few come close to Kubrick's work.

Even on a very superficial level.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 15433807



Kubrick failed to understand the #1 priority: to make a movie. A truly clever director would see to that first, and carefully integrate 'symbols' and 'messages' without detracting from, or side-stepping, the story and the characters.

Kubrick's 'art' sits next to the rest of the movie, even though they occupy the same screen. That's juxtaposition, not composition. His works all suffer from the same ills--the characters are so cartoonish that they distance the viewer from the story to the point of total disconnection, thus disengaging them from what's happening on the screen.

It's almost as if everything he did was to prove to film professors that he paid attention in class on the day of the symbolism lecture, and to impress the pseudo-intellectuals in the audience.

You sound like a Michael Bay fan.


 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14620252


Oh christ.

I've only knowingly seen one Bay movie (Transformers) and it was a steaming pile of dog poo. I'll have to look up his other work to find out if I've seen any of them.

I've seen most of Kubrick's films, and I haven't actually liked any of them. My reactions range from boredom and indifference to being outright offended.

If you can watch either A Clockwork Orange or Dr. Strangelove and not absolutely love those films, then you have an incurable mental defect.

A Clockwork Orange, in particular, is a movie only a sick mind would enjoy, and a juvenile one at that.

Cause the world was really discussing mind control before then? You do know the US Army was pumping the populace full of LSD and God knows what else at the time right? If you would like to discuss immaturity why do you expect art to entertain you life isn't always enjoyable. Sometimes you have to actually think about the situations as they prevail and sometimes it's really ugly.
