The Films of Stanley Kubrick: A Portrait of the Artist - Who was Stanley Kubrick? Some sources would describe him as brilliant but reclusive film director, one whose intense perfectionism limited his output to a mere thirteen films. Others view him as a misunderstood artist, a man whose films were sometimes rejected upon release but considered to be classics years later. This course will examine the thirteen completed feature films of Stanley Kubrick, a dazzling filmmaker who understood the power of the visual image, and use it to great advantage. Kubrick's relationship to literature and music will also be explored, as well as the influences from his early career as a photographer for "Look" magazine.
