Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Behind the Velvet Rope Few directors have been as zealously protective of their privacy as Stanley Kubrick, which makes the first comprehensive collection of his interviews a rare glimpse of his own views of his life and work. For Stanley Kubrick: Interviews, editor Gene D. Phillips has tracked down pieces from 1959 to 1987, yielding an overview of the arc of Kubrick's approach to filmmaking. Surprisingly affable, Kubrick discusses everything from religion to nuclear energy and money. "It's a lot of trouble making a picture," says Kubrick at one point. "It can be very boring."
