Journal Articles

Anger, Cedric.
"Le dernier expressionniste." Cahiers du Cinéma no534 Apr 1999. p. 28-9.
"Part of a special section on filmmaker Stanley Kubrick. The expressionist character of Kubrick's oeuvre is discussed. Kubrick did not attempt to stun his audience with boundless panache, rather, he aimed to recreate the magical power of the fascination generated by silent movies. Each one of his films attempts to recreate the visual impact and hallucinatory power of early cinema and to return to the camera all of its expressive power. For Kubrick, films were meant to amaze and to be watched with the mouth and eyes wide open, and he was at his best when his characters were silent and lighting and music were used to their maximum effect." [Art Abstracts]

Anger, Cedric.
"Kubrick, cote cuisine." Cahiers du Cinéma no539 Oct 1999. p. 7-8.
"Following the death of Stanley Kubrick, the writer discusses three books on the filmmaker: Stanley Kubrick, by John Baxter; Deux ans avec Kubrick, by Frederic Rafael; and Kubrick, by Michel Ciment. Baxter's book offers a minutely detailed investigation of Kubrick's life and is most interesting for the information it provides on his early career. Rafael's book is an insider's account by the screenwriter of Eyes Wide Shut that recounts the stages and writing methods employed for Kubrick's last film. Ciment's book is a reedition that includes a chapter on Eyes Wide Shut." [Art Abstracts]

"This paper shows the value of using a depth-psychological approach in understanding the life and work of the film director Stanley Kubrick. This director is an especially compelling example of the relevance of Freud and psychoanalysis to film. Among other things, his last film, "Eyes Wide Shut," was based on a story by Arthur Schnitzler, a Viennese writer whose psychological insight was much admired by Freud. Kubrick was also a latter-day practitioner of German Expressionism who described his films as dreams. Kubrick was, like Freud, a modernist who believed in the power of reason and in the didactic authority of the artistic expression of ideas. He adopted Freud's view that good and evil were inextricably bound together in the depths of the human personality. But he was also postmodern in his skepticism toward the Enlightenment project of progressive scientific rationalism. His method of filmmaking also reflected a postmodern sensibility through its interrogation of genre and the construction of an "open narrative" that erases the transparency of the film form and requires the critical engagement of the audience in the discovery-and invention-of meaning."

"Filmmaker Stanley Kubrick is one of those famous people whose rejection of the effects of fame unavoidably heightens and defines it and whose retreat from public life is simply another type of public show. This situation is both coy and surreal, as Kubrick's sporadic productivity is accompanied by all the typical showbiz glamour and excitement. In addition, Kubrick's is a lonely intelligence that insists on the total overview, is intrigued by systems and control, is attracted to all forms of modern technology that can achieve control, and is finally pessimistic about the capacity of mere human intelligence to exercise such control."

"Film giant Stanley Kubrick dies at 70." British Journal of Photography no7215 Mar 10 1999. p. 3.
"Film director Stanley Kubrick died on March 7, 1999, at the age of 70. Although Kubrick will be remembered as one of the outstanding movie directors, he started his career as a stills photographer. His interest in still pictures never diminished, and, as a perfectionist in all things photographic, neither did his interest in camera development. He was a dedicated long-term reader of the British Journal of Photography and regularly came up with ideas for articles, several of which were actively pursued. A fascinating documentary that deals with the making of The Shining, shot by one of Kubrick's daughters, and The Invisible Man, a profile of Kubrick used to begin a season of his films on Britain's Channel 4, are also discussed."

Jones, Kent.
"Un conteur metaphysique." Cahiers du Cinéma no534 Apr 1999. p. 25-7.
"Part of a special section on filmmaker Stanley Kubrick. The writer discusses Kubrick's oeuvre. The impression that a thinking machine conceived, modulated, and determined the rhythm of the images and sound in Kubrick's films is something that the filmmaker desired and encouraged. Kubrick, whose style always shone thanks to its graphic precision, was always regarded as an intellectual who observed the world from above, like a prodigious technician. Although this is true, it only accounts for part of the phenomenon that is Kubrick: He was also a prodigious showman who, from the beginning, displayed great skill for creating suspense. He was also one of those rare filmmakers who care enough about their audience to put something miraculous into each of their films." [Art Abstracts]

Film director Stanley Kubrick has died, barely a week after finishing his final film Eyes Wide Shut. After directing Spartacus in 1960, Kubrick announced that he would never make another film unless he had full artistic freedom, and he got it. Studios funded whatever he chose to make without question, while major stars placed themselves unreservedly at his disposal. Accounts of Kubrick's icy perfectionism overlook not only his willingness to improvise on set, but also his persuasive charm and his restless readiness to innovate. Kubrick was never merely the all-knowing, didactic control freak he has often been depicted as; he, like his films, was riven with tensions and ambiguities." [Art Abstracts]

"Many features of director Stanley Kubrick's style create a cold emotional tone or an air of perfectionism and aesthetic detachment. First among these is what Time magazine once referred to as the lapidary" quality of his photographic imagery, which depends upon visibly motivated and rather hard light sources, and which normally favors a deep-focus, crystal-clear resolution. Kubrick also liked to use the wide-angle lens, which he employed similarly to Orson Welles, to establish a frightening, dynamic, and sometimes caricatured sense of space. Like Welles and Max Ophuls, he was a virtuoso of the moving camera, although he normally created a more rigidly geometrical scene. Kubrick's tracking movements follow the characters in a lateral direction, moving past objects in the foreground, or they advance ruthlessly down an eerie corridor toward impending doom, rather like the unstoppable march of a military maneuver."

Stanley Kubrick often used the motif of food to lead audiences into the visionary and heroic possibilities of his motion pictures. Food is equated with existence in '2001: A Space Odyssey,' with sexual pleasure in 'Lolita,' with corporate greed in 'Dr. Strangelove,' and with violating taboos in 'Full Metal Jacket.'

UC users only
"The cinema of the late Stanley Kubrick is examined. For many film scholars and directors, Kubrick was the quintessential filmmaker. He had an aesthetic and unmatched technical command of the filmic medium and an unconventional approach to narrative, and it this often perplexing conflation of aesthetics, technology, and narrative that has made his work the singular phenomenon it is today. Few other commercial filmmakers generated as much controversy and excitement in advance or after a new film, and the films themselves "have become part of the aesthetic and political unconscious of our culture." The year 2001 saw a constant flow of "Kubrickiana" emerge: At least 12 books (new and revised) are in print, and 11 of his 13 feature films are now available on VHS and DVD, most of them newly remastered. Referring to this material, the writer goes on to discuss Kubrick's films, critical reaction to them over the years, and the picture of the filmmaker that emerges from books and critical studies of his work."

UC users only
"Stanley Kubrick's first film Fear and Desire provides some crucial cues to understanding the ways narrative meaning can (and cannot) exist within the films overseen by the filmmaker. In this allegorical film, which tells the story of four soldiers trapped behind enemy lines in a nameless war, Kubrick made a series of stylistic decisions that his films later refined, including the use of voice-over narration and multiple story lines. These elements, which are crucial to constructing a narrative authority over events and their meaning within the film, importantly contradict the reputation of his later films for ambiguity. This film was not merely his first film but also the first important Kubrick film, which stands as the last exhumed text through which to better understand the artistic evolution of one of cinema's most preeminent contributors." [Art Index]

Tesson, Charles.
"Seul contre lui." Cahiers du Cinéma no534 Apr 1999. p. 22-3.
Part of a special section on filmmaker Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick, who died suddenly on March 7, 1999, was the absolute master of his own cinema. He got his revenge on Hollywood for taking away part of his control over the film Spartacus and managed to impose his own rules and his own way of operating. His films, including 200l: A Space Odyssey and The Shining, displayed a fascination with machinery and depicted the violence and folly of humankind. What gives these films their profound originality is a monumentality that disturbs the realm of the intimate." [Art Abstracts]

"Part of a special issue reviewing movies reissued on DVD. A review of the DVD of Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon (1975). Of all Kubrick's films, Barry Lyndon is the one that most requires the improvements of the DVD format, on account of degradation of the film layer since it was made. The DVD offers dumbfounded viewers a virtual restoration of a film in which all Kubrick's mastery shines to the full." [Art Index]

"The soundtrack to Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon is now available on CD. This is a laudable exercise in film score compilation, but, ironically, the soundtrack like the film is a technical rather than an artistic triumph. Unlike the soundtrack to Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey or even to Steven Spielberg's Jaws, both by John Williams, the soundtrack to Barry Lyndon is more an exacting journal of record than a satisfying listening experience. It includes pieces by The Chieftains, Mozart, and Handel." [Art Abstracts]

The chief characteristic of Stanley Kubric's films is not innocence but its struggle for innocence. 'Barry Lyndon' falls in the category of those films which are rejected by the audiences on their first release only to become masterpieces later. In this film Kubrick has tried to slow down action to such a level that it becomes like a trance. Kubric's cinematic style is the antithesis of popular film today.

Author Abstract: The expansion of social scientific models for controlling crime and deviancy provided the context for both Stanley Kubrick's film A Clockwork Orange and much of Foucault's writing. This essay examines how Foucault's writings and Kubrick's film lay out congruent critiques of social scientific and criminological attempts to define and constitute deviancy and subjectivity. Foucault's texts and Kubrick's film ask us to remember the violence of our everyday existence and to recognize our modern nightmares as portents of what lies along the path that we have followed.

"Part of a special issue on Stanley Kubrick. The writer considers the history of Anthony Burgess's novel A Clockwork Orange and Kubrick's film adaptation of it. He constructs his article in 21 sections, each headed by a word from Nadsat, the language that Burgess invented for his novel. Critiquing the adaptation, he argues that while the film has its merits, it is a mean-spirited exercise in dim sarcasm that is, for long stretches, egregariously dull." [Art Abstracts]

"The production of Stanley Kubrick's film A Clockwork Orange, released in 1971, is discussed. Kubrick's adaption of Anthony Burgess's novella, with cinematography by John Alcott, centers on a teenage sociopath who, along with a trio of criminal cohorts, engages in muggings, rape, fights, and various other vicious crimes until he is convicted of a sadistic murder. The film is depicted in three segments, each of which has a distinctive color palette and camera style that expresses the narrative. Aiming to stylize the violence in the film, Kubrick undercranked the camera to cinematically interpret the graphic images of brutality. The most subtle yet extreme departure from reality in the film is perhaps the scene of Alex and his cohorts taking a midnight joyride, which was photographed on a process stage with the passing scenery in the nighttime background plate glowing in ghostly fashion. Kubrick, a master at the use of projection effects, probably used the exaggerated background plate in order to convey his drug-addled characters' euphoria." [Art Abstracts]

Stanley Kubrick stopped the distribution of 'A Clockwise Orange' in Britain after both he and his movie were criticized by the press. The British Board of Censorship passed the movie but British distributors and exhibitors opposed the decision and asked for strict censorship. The press and others asserted that the movie was responsible for a series of 'copycat crimes' and a spurt in teenage violence.

There are significant similarities between the art of William Hogarth and a 1963 film by Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick's film 'Dr. Strangelove: or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb' portrayed the ironies of engaging sympathy for the heroes whose determination accidentally leads to worldwide destruction. Hogarth anticipated this Strangelove Effect in his art, depicting a contemporary conversation as a drunken riot while containing elements of joy and celebration.

"Discusses the film Dr. Strangelove as a response to the ideology of liberal consensus, which deemed American society sound and Communism a threat to the United States. This ideology contributed to the Cold War mentality and the nuclear arms race. Stanley Kubrick resolved to make a black comedy about such thinking. The film frequently links the sex drive with the war drive and lambastes anti-Communism paranoia, society's inability to realize the enormity of the nuclear threat, nuclear strategies, and the blind faith often put in technological progress. The film's importance comes from its uncharacteristic portrayal of the Cold War, since most films of the 40's and 50's were ardently supportive of the patriotic ideology."

Stanley Kubrick's last film, 'Eyes Wide Shut,' is a fitting finale for a director whose work is always a source of astonishment. Kubrick, whose film credits include 'Full Metal Jacket,' 'The Killing,' '2001: A Space Odyssey,' 'Barry Lyndon' and 'A Clockwork Orange,' is known for his meticulously designed sets. Kubrick, who passed away in the spring of 1999, believes that the architecture of the set is an integral part of the entire film.

"A review of Eyes Wide Shut, directed by Stanley Kubrick. The film is marked by an endless pace, fossilized sexuality, and a hamfisted score, but the two exceptions to this disappointment are the beautiful lighting and Kubrick's laser-sharp examination of the collective drift of the modern male. He points to the collapse of male identity in Western culture as a signal reason for the "abyss of depravity" he tries to convey in the erotic scenes. The uneasy relationship between men and women is subtly, uncomfortably, and masterfully explored." [Art Abstracts]

"Close readings of a scene involving actors Shelley Duvall and Jack Nicholson in The Shining and a scene involving Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut show that the directorial strategy of Stanley Kubrick refracts conflicts between husbands and wives, and between the genders more generally, as clashes of acting styles. In their focus on a single object in their scenes, the work of Cruise and Nicholson suggests the minimalism of modernist filmmaking, and their unconventionally narrow focus therefore reads as nonrealistic. In contrast, both Duvall and Kidman use multiple objects of attention, and appear solidly embedded in the fictional worlds of their characters, a hallmark of naturalistic filmmaking. As a result, their work reads as more authentic and psychologically grounded than that of the men. Furthermore, the women's performances seem more sympathetic than those of the men precisely because they are naturalistic. In short, naturalism ironically bears a more acute feminist subversion of the narrative than the films' Brechtian elements." [Art Index]

"This paper shows the value of using a depth-psychological approach in understanding the life and work of the film director Stanley Kubrick. This director is an especially compelling example of the relevance of Freud and psychoanalysis to film. Among other things, his last film, "Eyes Wide Shut," was based on a story by Arthur Schnitzler, a Viennese writer whose psychological insight was much admired by Freud. Kubrick was also a latter-day practitioner of German Expressionism who described his films as dreams. Kubrick was, like Freud, a modernist who believed in the power of reason and in the didactic authority of the artistic expression of ideas. He adopted Freud's view that good and evil were inextricably bound together in the depths of the human personality. But he was also postmodern in his skepticism toward the Enlightenment project of progressive scientific rationalism. His method of filmmaking also reflected a postmodern sensibility through its interrogation of genre and the construction of an "open narrative" that erases the transparency of the film form and requires the critical engagement of the audience in the discovery-and invention-of meaning."

"Stanley Kubrick's film Eyes Wide Shut is discussed. Kubrick's final film recounts the journey of Bill, a doctor, through a forest of fantasies. The story relates the salvation of a man who was previously unaware of the existence of passions, particularly jealousy as a manifestation of desire, to a point where he almost loses himself in the fantasies of others and discovers those who are ready to profane the couple he forms with his wife. The film contains elements that are specific to both horror films and love stories." [Art Abstracts]

"Part of a special issue on Stanley Kubrick. In Kubrick's final film, Eyes Wide Shut, the hero's erotic odyssey is supposed to provoke anxiety. A remarkably faithful adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler's turn-of-the-century novella Dream Story, it follows the dream logic of 1960s art house classics. As in Resnais' Last Year at Marienbad, Bergman's Persona, Bunuel's Belle de jour, and Antonioni's Blowup, Kubrick's film gives the uncanny impression of a story being told by a madman. Not attempting anything particularly new with this film, Kubrick is prepared to tell his audience that the things that he and other directors were preoccupied with 30 years ago are more interesting than the things cinema concerns itself with today."

This wild film, which is captivating and as strange as one could have expected, represents an absolutely poignant and real event: It is the last time that this monumental filmmaker will make his mark on the silver screen and it is also the last time that audiences will have the pleasure of discovering a new Kubrick film."

"The real pornography in Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut is its depiction of the effect of shameless wealth on the human soul and society. National reviewers looking at this film took a myopic focus on sex and the shallow psychologies of the film's central couple. In doing so, they remained blind to the profoundly visual filmic world that Kubrick devoted a career's work to creating. Kubrick's films are never about individuals alone; they are invariably about civilization and human history. The world Kubrick is trying to show with Eyes Wide Shut is the capital of the American Empire at the end of the millennium. In this world, the wealthy, powerful, and privileged use the rest of humanity like throwaway products, covering up their crimes with shiny surfaces and murder and ultimately dooming their own children to servitude and whoredom."

"A discussion of how filmmakers over the years have attempted to capture the essence of fin-de-siecle Vienna. The setting of Vienna has held a keen fascination for filmmakers. Vienna is portrayed as a city of romantic splendour in such 1930s films as The Great Waltz with Fernand Gravet and Waltzes from Vienna with Jessie Matthews and Esmond Knight. Later, Carol Reed's The Third Man famously offered film audiences a dystopian view of postwar Vienna as a city preyed on by unscrupulous racketeers. More recently, Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut relocated Arthur Schnitzler's psychological exploration of 1920s Vienna to late-1990s Manhattan. Raful Ruiz's new film Klimt, while ostensibly an account of the life of the Austrian Secessionist painter Gustav Klimt (1862-1918), is also a barbed tribute to contemporary Vienna." [Art Index]

An essay is presented regarding liberal democratic consensus in the film "Eyes Wide Shut" directed by Stanley Kubrick and starring Nicole Kidman. It states that Kubrick presented in the film the contradiction between egalitarian democratic policy and vertical identifications under hierarchal social structure. It mentions that the film is considered to demonstrate a legitimation strategy which can be applied through the strategy's integration with internal authority under intellectual history.

"Cinematographer Larry Smith's work on Stanley Kubrick's film Eyes Wide Shut is discussed. For the film, Kubrick was inspired to work with existing light fixtures and a minimum of "movie lights"--a strategy he had used previously on The Shining and Barry Lyndon, the film in which Smith began his association with Kubrick. Eyes Wide Shut is framed in the standard 1.85:1 format, using primarily a set of Zeiss Superspeed T1.3 spherical prime lenses, but occasionally using Arriflex's T2.1 variable prime lenses or a zoom. The negative stock was rated faster than the actual recommended speed and force-developed two stops to bring it back to its original exposure level, giving the advantages of being able to work with less light and obtain a particular mood. A meticulous color structure is a key part of the film's visual design--a veritable rainbow of bold colors is used to underscore the emotional subtexts of various scenes." [Art Abtracts]

After a party at a friend's house, Alice evokes her fantasies about a man she saw during a trip to Cape Cod, a scene that serves as a catalyst for Bill's nocturnal wanderings, which lead him into a labyrinth of unreal and disturbing situations, including a mysterious orgy.

"Although memorable, Stanley Kubrick's final film, Eyes Wide Shut, is a mess. The film is adapted from Arthur Sc dreams involving other people. The film is built around the body of a woman and the lack of desire that a man feels in its presence. It is always open to multiple interpretations, and it oscillates between dream and reality, subjectivity and objectivity, and diegetic and nondiegetic truth. The narrative may or may not contain an elaborate tissue of lies, and these lies may extend outside the narrative to the issue of how much of the film was completed by Kubrick. Signs that the film was not finished when the director died are examined." [Art Abstracts]

"In Full Metal Jacket, Stanley Kubrick holds up a fragmented image of war. The war zone is truly a construct, and the clinical sets seem like amplifications of the film's opening images during which recruits are shaved bald and shorn of any recognizable distinctiveness. Divested of its conventional framework, the film stands square and makes no attempt to pretend that war is communicable. The writers examine how Kubrick made such a film, how its effects reveal his frustration with the cinematic vehicle, and how that frustration symbolizes the way people react to wars."

"The author explores what he feels to be the theory that goes beyond queer theory by focusing explicitly on military men as they are portrayed in the 1987 film "Full Metal Jacket," and the 1957 film "Paths of Glory," both by director Stanley Kubrick. War, the author feels, remains a prominent expression of masculinity as the author demonstrates in his explications of both films in which characters display or proclaim their own high degree of manhood. The author uses gay pornography to show that such materials that include masculine men are prevalent and highly sought after." [Ebsco]

"Issues of masculinity in Stanely Kubrick's 1987 Vietnam War movie, Full Metal Jacket, are discussed. In a dual narrative, the film focuses on the marines' training at boot camp and their experiences on the battlefield. Well before the narrative arrives at the battlefield, it depicts the Marines as "indestructible" killing machines whose bodies are hard but also vulnerable. Then the action moves rapidly to pare down the war into a protracted microconfrontation in Hue City, where a sole Vietcong sniper, who turns out to be a girl staked out in the ruins of a bombed building, efficiently picks apart and almost decimates an entire Marine squad. This depiction of the Marine machine as disordered and almost overtaxed in this encounter, suggests that the film is proffered as a gendered exposure and critique of the system that is its subject. From frame to frame and from tableaux to tableaux, the film is an arrestingly beautiful rendering of effects of fascination, desire, and even beauty that exist as a quality of the mechanicistic rather than in contradistinction to it."

"The writer discusses Stanley Kubrick's film Full Metal Jacket. She suggests that the film focuses on a particular aspect of American culture: the creation of the American man and war hero. The writer observes that Kubrick explores the reasons behind American involvement in Vietnam by focusing primarily on the cultural conditioning of the men who fought in the war. Kubrick, she notes, reveals the profound analogies between the making of a marine and the making of masculinity in general; the standards for manhood promulgated by the military permeate society entirely and are broadcast by its institutions. She argues that Kubrick criticizes the entire process of masculinization by demonstrating that it involves not only the defeat of the "other" (female or otherwise) but, more basically, the defeat of the very self."

"Part of a special cultural studies issue of the Quarterly Review of Film and Video. An analysis of homosexuality in Stanley Kubrick's film The Killing (1956) in light of Robin Wood's concept of the Monster. Writing about horror films, Woods illuminates the concept of the repressed Other via the Monster, which "represents forms of sexuality which are inimical to the status quo." The sexual tension at work in The Killing is plainly revealed on the screen: None of the men recruited for a heist by the main character has a successful relationship with women. Indeed, it can be postulated that the desire to be with other men to commit illegal acts is only a displacement of the desire to be able to pursue their male-male relationships. The Killing further restructures the sexual composition of film noir because its violence and fatalistic outcome result from the characters not acting on their homosexual desires." [Art Index]

UC users only
"Close readings of a scene involving actors Shelley Duvall and Jack Nicholson in The Shining and a scene involving Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut show that the directorial strategy of Stanley Kubrick refracts conflicts between husbands and wives, and between the genders more generally, as clashes of acting styles. In their focus on a single object in their scenes, the work of Cruise and Nicholson suggests the minimalism of modernist filmmaking, and their unconventionally narrow focus therefore reads as nonrealistic. In contrast, both Duvall and Kidman use multiple objects of attention, and appear solidly embedded in the fictional worlds of their characters, a hallmark of naturalistic filmmaking. As a result, their work reads as more authentic and psychologically grounded than that of the men. Furthermore, the women's performances seem more sympathetic than those of the men precisely because they are naturalistic. In short, naturalism ironically bears a more acute feminist subversion of the narrative than the films' Brechtian elements." [Art Index]

" Part of a special issue on film genres. Adopting a poststructuralist approach, the writer conducts an intertextual analysis of Stanley Kubrick's film The Shining. He explains his interest in how the film's generic status as a horror opens up two stable choices for the interpretation of its goals: fans of Stephen King, the author of the book of the film, expect a generically stable horror film, while academic critics see it as a melodrama about the disintegration of a middle-class American family. He presents a poststructuralist reading strategy whereby, rather than arguing over films' generic make-up, critics examine how the perception of a film's genre influences the interpretation of the text; this strategy is significant for the way in which it illuminates competing political identity issues such as gender and race within the genre film. He goes on to show how, in The Shining, the genre functions of horror and melodrama, in order to make sense of a politically polysemous and perhaps contradictory text, serve as unifying fictions for two sets of interpretive communities."

The film stars Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrance, the winter caretaker of the Overlook Hotel, and Shelley Duvall as his wife Wendy.

Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" is grossly underrated by critics and is perhaps his most underappreciated film. The multifaceted horror presented in this film exhibits tension not only on a surface level, but exposes racial and sexist stereotypes while incorporating satirical political commentary. The horror of this film is its reflection of its American audience.

"Part of a special issue reviewing movies reissued on DVD. A review of the DVD version of Stanley Kubrick's Spartacus (1960). This DVD is like a school solely devoted to Spatacus studies, a place where it is possible to see such things as Kubrick's sketches for the last scene, the film's storyboard, extracts from the comic strip that inspired the film, publicity posters, commentaries by the major protagonists, and a film made during the McCarthy era on the famous "Hollywood Ten" (which included Spartacus screenwriter Dalton Trumbo). It is also like a history of cinema itself as the viewer learns how a film superimposes layer upon layer of know-how, research, personalities, and frustrations." [Art Index]

"Part of a special section on the future of motion pictures with regard to photography, computer applications, and special effects. The pioneering work of filmmaker Stanley Kubrick is discussed. At a time when Hollywood had relegated science-fiction to the genre of the B-movie, Kubrick set up his own special effects team for his film 2001, A Space Odyssey. Using NASA advisors, he aimed to create a hitherto unknown level of realism. The resulting film marked a renaissance in special effects, and many of the techniques used were reused and refined in later films." [Art Abstracts]

"Part of a special section on film and architecture. A number of new architectural designs display influences from the science-fiction aesthetics of films designed over 20 years ago. The futuristic film sets of Ken Adam, who designed most of the James Bond films from 1962 to 1979, influenced a whole generation of architects and interior designers and have now become a reality. Matthew Priestman Architects' proposal for a luxury hotel is a Bond-like high-tech complex that reflects the aquatic themes of one of Adam's designs for The Spy Who Loved Me. The name and look of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey is unashamedly used in Nicholas Grimshaw and Partners' design for the Hal9000 Cemex global production and distribution center in Monterey, California. Anton Markus Pasing's design for an ecologically sound solution to the dominance of urbanity uses parts of the All Terrain Armored Transports from The Empire Strikes Back to convincingly suggest machines that come to life and stalk our cities."

Author Abstract: "Stanley Kubrick might be described as a metageneric filmmaker, since his major works tend to take apart and to reconstruct the inherited conventions of the pertinent filmic genre (horror in The Shining, historical romance in Barry Lyndon, and so forth). Kubrick's most intense and complex metageneric analysis is of science fiction in 2001. A historical and theoretical consideration of the science-fiction film reveals that it is structured on a central and virtually disabling contradiction: between the cognitive and critical structure of science fiction as a literary mode, on the one hand, and, on the other, the general association of science-fiction cinema with the dominance of special effects, which tend to induce an anti-critical intellectual banality. Nearly alone in science-fiction cinema, 2001 manages to short-circuit this contradiction by dialectically thematizing the whole matter of intellectual banality and thus, so to speak, solving the problem by raising it to the second power. 2001 is the first and last great masterpiece of science-fiction film."

Kubrick reanimated Johann Strauss's "The Blue Danube" for the machine age by deftly linking it to the dance of technology rather than society. The Richard Strauss theme from Also Sprach Zarathustra is so locked into Kubrick's film that it is genuinely difficult to think of one without the other. 2001 also introduced Gyorgy Ligeti's chillingly difficult, beautifully chromatic music to a mass audience."

A retrospective look at the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey shows that Stanley Kubrick paid a great deal of attention to computer developments of the late 1960s. In particular, the recurring image of the monolith turns out to represent a monolithic integrated circuit. The movie shows that computers and other tools have an important role in creating the human race. And the film teaches a set of ethics for using the computer.

Stanley Kubrick's science fiction masterpiece '2001: A Space Odyssey,' is considered a breakthrough not only in science film production but also in musical scoring as well.

New Right arguments maintaining that it is morally inconsistent to condone abortion while opposing nuclear weapons are attacked using a sexo-semiotics of technology perspective, a type of psychoanalytical ethnography focusing on the poetics & erotics of tools. From this viewpoint, all tools have reproductive implications & every technology is essentially a reproductive one; this recognition has been obscured by rhetorical strategies, resulting in the creation of an extraterrestrial culture devoid of human qualities. Solutions such as the development of a hermeneutics of technology & the reinstitution of M fertility rituals (that would allow Ms to resolve their ambivalence toward life & death, women, & children on their own bodies rather than displacing it into the nuclear & antiabortion arenas) are discussed."
