Kubrick Exhibit at LACMA

kubrick exhibitEven though this exhibit has been running for a while, I just wanted to remind everybody that the Kubrick exhibit will end in a couple months, on June 30th.

This retrospective covers his entire body of work, from his early days a journalist to unfinished projects such as Napoleon.  The exhibit features plenty of posters, stills, drawings, writings, props and projections, which should satisfy every movie geek.

I particularly liked the reconstitution of the the 2001 room and the – x-rated – props from Clockwork Orange (see picture). To be frank, while there is plenty to learn for neophytes and people who are not that familiar with the filmmaker, Kubrick fans will be entertained but won’t find much food for thoughts here. As you might already know, Stanley Kubrick’s work needs to be analyzed thoroughly to reveal itself, which can only be satisfied through one medium, books.
