The Kubrick files
From the archives of cinematic genius

In 1968, when Stanley Kubrick was asked to comment on the metaphysical significance of 2001: A Space Odyssey, he replied: “It’s not a message I ever intended to convey in words. 2001 is a nonverbal experience... I tried to create a visual experience, one that bypasses verbalized pigeonholing and directly penetrates the subconscious with an emotional and philosophic content.

Now available as part of our Bibliotheca Universalis series, The Stanley Kubrick Archives borrows from the director’s philosophy. From the opening sequence of Killer’s Kiss to the final frames of Eyes Wide Shut, it allows the masterful visuals of Kubrick’s complete films to impress through a sequence of compelling, mesmerizing stills. We uncover Kubrick’s creative process through fascinating archival material, including set designs, sketches, correspondence, documents, screenplays, drafts, notes, and shooting schedules.

Accompanying the visual material are essays by noted Kubrick scholars, articles written by and about Kubrick, and a selection of Kubrick’s best interviews. The result is a visual, archival, and scholarly journey through masterworks of 20th century cinema and the meticulous mind of the director behind them.

Editorial Reviews

bn.com
The ultimate homage to legendary film directory Stanley Kubrick, this large-format book explores his cinematic universe in exquisite detail, with oversized stills that chronicle the development of each film. A wide selection of other material from the Kubrick archives, from props to studies for scripts, illuminates his creative process, enhanced by commentary from Kubrick scholars and excerpts from interviews with the director. As is usually the case with Taschen publications, the book in itself is a work of art with respect to design and execution.

Just essential for the Kubrick aficionado and more than worth the $1 I got it for in a Borders crazy markdown sale! Only criticism is some of the photographic reproductions could've been better.

Kubrick. What more can be said? This filmmaker, Life photographer, made only a handful of films, but what a list! 2001: A Space Odyssey, Spartacus, The Shining, A Clockwork Orange, Dr. Strangelove, Full Metal Jacket, to name a few, are some of the iconic films in the last 50 years. This book goes into the nuances and back stories of the man and the legend. With personal notes, scripts, behind the scene photos and insights, this book will inspire you to look deep into how these films were a reflection of this man's vision and determination to create timeless films. Your library will be complete with the view of this man's creativity and work. I recommend this whole-heartedly. Five stars all the way!!!!!
