I have been a long time fan of the late great STANLEY KUBRICK (6/26/28 to 3/ /99). I have watched all of his movies over and over again and I still marvel at his achievements. From Fear And Desire right up to Eyes Wide Shut every work stands on its own as a one of a kind masterpiece. I have been so moved by his works that I have put this web page together to show the importance of his work as both philosophy and art.
This document his completely created by me without the aid of books, biographies or critiques of his works. I have simply sat down and watched each movie over and over again and took notes about the symbolism and critique of the human condition and how it relates to all of us.
Mr. Kubrick was very picky about what books and stories he turn into movies and with very good reason. The ideas and philosophies are meant to interconnect between each movie in the series. The only exception to this rule is Spartacus. This was the only movie which he did not pick but was brought into once production had already started. Rightfully Spartacus does not belong in this critique for that very reason, but I shall include it anyway and possible reveal his reasons for doing it (other than money!). I have also left out his short works and documentaries as I believe that they have very little to do with the major works that he produced. Any project he undertook prior to Fear And desire was merely used to sharpen his film-making skills.
Below are the many links that will take you to all of the documents. You can view my analysis of each movie separately or explore how they all connect together in the Body of Work link.
