Stanley Kubrick once said, “if it can be written or thought, it can be filmed.” This behind the scenes photo was taken during the making of "Applause." Check out the film by clicking the link in our bio.
Aprecio exageradamente filmes de horror, dark. O ILUMINADO é um clássico da literatura, o filme de Stanley Kubrick é irretocável, um dos melhores neste gênero . Adoro a trilha sonora, os enquadramentos, a marcação, os atores e até mesmo todos os exageros! Há muitas sequências clássicas neste filme, esta, em especial, continua apavorante...😮😮😮
It’s almost fitting that #stanleykubrick would leave the world with one last #film mired in pure ambiguity & did it in a year I often post about for film: #1999 , when studios made challenging films influenced by the mid-90s film boom. It’s also today’s #31daysofcultfilms as #EyesWideShut & let’s face it, #cultmovies do feature sex, much of them exploitative with cheap thrills. Few would screw with your head & what better way than #Kubrick to do that. EWS, a film that would take 2 years to film with a revolving cast & crew, is based on a Schnitzler novella, set in modern day #NYC (#London stood in for England-based Kubrick). Bill (#tomcruise on a 2-2 critical year with this & Magnolia) is a man with it all: career doctor, beautiful wife (#nicolekidman ), fancy home & adorable kid. But when a passive-aggressive argument between spouses occurs, an upset Bill wanders the night streets & finds himself on an odyssey of psychological & sexual fortuity. EWS was the subject of many rumors from an unusually long production schedule to false plot leaks to a demanding Kubrick (himself making a film 13 years since his last one), all of it the subject of a hungry press. But EWS is a fascinating & polarizing work, one with bad timing when the studio released it in July (likely hoping to market Cruise, Kidman & Kubrick to the tune of “Baby did a bad, bad thing”), a primetime market for summer audiences, who left their heads scratching at this one. I recalled sitting in a sold out suburban theater & likely the only one to enjoy it. EWS looks at voyeurism through the eyes & mind of an innocent (Bill), going on his own Dante’s Inferno/The Odyssey-like descent in a world beyond his comprehension. Bill is decent, innocent, moralistic & unassuming, all potentially fatal traits in a world he doesn’t understand, with people in power that could ruin him, in a cult-like world where sex & voyeurism are king. EWS also looks at the idea of self-satisfaction: are Bill & Alice (Kidman) happy in their marriage? Are they in need of an awakening, sexual or emotional to liberate themselves? Kubrick, an ardent chess player & intellectual, poses that with EWS. #cultmovie
