Story: An exclusive interview from the director of 2001: A Space Odyssey, the revolutionary film by one, Stanley Kubrick.
Why You Should Listen to It: I don’t know if this was for a magazine article or what? But this recording of Stanley Kubrick suddenly exists on YouTube.
And what great insight it is to perhaps the greatest director
who ever lived. The master discusses his entire career in detail all the way up to the making of 2001. How he fell into film-making (by learning that “THE MARCH OF TIME” paid something like 50K for documentaries… he learned the hard way they did not).
Kubrick’s chess hustling years…
(yes, Stanley K. actually made a living by playing chess 12 hours a day). How Kirk Douglas gave him his first break with “Spartacus.”
And even how to direct actors.
The master’s ultra rational mind is on full display in this fascinating discussion about the making of cinema’s greatest director.
