    5 Things You Might Not Know About Stanley Kubrick's 'Full Metal Jacket'

    Cannes Review: 'Room 237' An Outstanding, Fascinating & Funny Exploration & Celebration Of 'The Shining'

    Is "The Shining" just a horror movie about a guy who goes berserk in a hotel, or is it subversively about the history of American genocide?

    Stanley Kubrick & Jim Thompson Almost Fell Out Over Screenwriting Credits To 'The Killing'

    And 10 Things Learned From The Criterion Collection's Release Of The Classic Film NoirLast week, the Criterion Collection released, "The Killing," Stanley Kubrick's ambitious 1956 classic film noir. While it was technically his third feature-length effort ("Fear and Desire" he disavowed as an amateur work and "Killer's Kiss" was so low-budget it was shot without sound and the actors dubbed in their lines later), "The Killing" was arguably Kubrick's first real picture with a budget and real cast. Produced by James B. Harris (he would also produce "Paths of Glory" and "Lolita"), "The Killing" was written by Kubrick and pulp crime author Jim Tho...

    Stanley Kubrick's Projection Memo For 'Barry Lyndon'; David Lynch Wanted 'Mulholland Drive' Louder

    In case you've missed it, there has been a minor storm of controversy brewing over Warner Bros.' recent release of Stanley Kubrick's masterful "Barry Lyndon" on BluRay. The bone of contention is that the current release crops the picture with a 1.77 aspect ratio, which Warner Bros. insists complies with the wishes of the late Kubrick. However, Glenn Kenny has unearthed the smoking gun as it were, receiving a copy of the instructions Stanley Kubrick sent to projectionists insisting on a screen format of 1.66 "and in no event at less than 1:75." Meanwhile, Jeff Wells at Hollywood Elsewhere has also been furiously digging into this whole aspect ...
