In what might end up being one of the best viral marketing campaigns ever for Hulu‘s Castle Rock (then again…), the staff at The Stanley Hotel — the visual inspiration for director Stanley Kubrick‘s 1980 horror film adaptation of Stephen King‘s 1977 novel and the filming location for the 1997 television adaptation — had a […]

A 1975 Letter Reveals Stanley Kubrick’s Advice To Theaters Showing Barry Lyndon

It’s no secret that director Stanley Kubrick was meticulous and precise in his work. But the level of care he put into his pictures was staggering and, on occasion, quite charming.

Vivian Kubrick Addresses Old Legend About Her Father Faking The Moon Landing

For some time, legendary director Stanley Kubrick has been connected to a conspiracy theory about faking the first American moon landings. In the odd documentary Room 237, one close watcher of The Shinning is convinced the director is apologizing for his involvement in the hoax with blink-and-you’ll-miss-them clues embedded in the film. And it seems […]

Glimpse Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon In New Trailer

Stanley Kubrick‘s Barry Lyndon is a beautiful film. Staggering, even.

New Video Series Considers The Work Of David Fincher

I’ve only had the chance to looking at the first video, but Raccord‘s The Directors Series released a set of videos a while back looking at the work of director David Fincher. In them, they establish the case that he is the modern Stanley Kubrick, which is a fair comparison. Though, I hope the subsequent […]
