He would've only been 89 if he were alive today… Reply Chris Gomez August 7, 2017 This is what i live for. Reply functionform August 15, 2017 Very well articulated, but I felt like you weren't analyzing the techniques as much as rhapsodizing them.

His is pretty feeble. Overall well written though. Reply Hybrid 95 September 14, 2017 The greatest film director ever!!!!! Reply Da Pumaface September 20, 2017 Fear and Desire is actually from 1943, not 53. This is just because you said 1953 in the subtitles Reply Ignat , Ignatov October 1, 2017 Love it! Love it!

Reply izabela Manolova December 29, 2017 Thank you for making these videos, everything is simplified and well presentated in 15 to 20 minutes and perfect for understanding exactly the director's universe!Keep up the good work! Reply Sledge January 2, 2018 Malcolm Macdowell was once asked "How does Stanley KNOW what he wants visually?" & replied "He just knows what he DOESN'T want". Malcolm also came to Stanley prior to shooting A Clockwork Orange & asked "How should I portray Alex?" & got an answer of "That's your job" – Not too many directors would give such creative freedom to an actor nowadays.

The music just gets a new, hidden meaning…a satire, mixed with creepyness… Reply Sean Roh February 20, 2018 Who thought that Kubrick's chubby cheeked face in the end was kind of adorable?

Reply ROBERT ZERBST Filmproduktion March 26, 2018 I have seen this, I want to call it: 'videoessay', now at least 30 times since your first release. Reply Bo Dylan March 28, 2018 You gotta do Jodorowsky Reply Vance Wallace March 31, 2018 I would pay A LOT to have been able to see Stanley Kubrick and Daniel Day-Lewis work together on a film. Not really to watch the film itself though but mostly just to watch them work together on set! I guess I could be wrong but those two seem COMPLETELY INCOMPATIBLE. Like fire and ice. Both are geniuses and possibly the greatest of all time in their respective fields but it's almost a guarantee that the two of them sharing a set would have been a recipe for disaster! Lol… Who knows though, if it ever actually happened and they were somehow able to work through it they might have created a total masterpiece, but I'm almost positive that the behind the scenes footage still would have been more interesting.. Unfortunately for us one is dead and the other is "retired" so we'll never know… :-/ Reply enterblank April 1, 2018 3rd video and damn how do i love this channel and your work Reply liza Estevez April 12, 2018 "what does the most important parts of a film" quote mean?

I believe he hits similar notes to Kubrick sometimes, particularly when things get hallucinogenic Reply nikos kokomplokos April 26, 2018 4:04 woody allen; when i first saw 2001 I didn't like it. Meanwhile space man floats towards spaceship in fully realistic stunningly epic shots (in 1968…) Reply fella May 17, 2018 Sometimes I feel like kubrick was just winging it during his takes, very bizarre to have multiple takes of different reactions Reply Rens Kloosterman May 28, 2018 I think this is one of my favorite video’s on this website Reply Paul Allen May 31, 2018 Channel Criswell is the Stanley Kubrick of YouTube video essay channels. Reply DesertHobo June 1, 2018 probably my favorite director of all time. something about the haunting atmosphere he creates within most of his films just stays with you. Reply Lucas Tassinari June 3, 2018 I know this video is old but I just discovered this channel and I'd like to ask you what is your favorite Kubrick movie ? Mine is Barry Lyndon. Reply Sam Ryland June 5, 2018 some of the snippets of dialogue are oddly placed, for instance when he talks about starting to be interested in photography and then cuts to "I was the whole crew". "I was the whole crew" was when he talked about making his first films not when he gained interest in photography. Putting them together is misleading for those who haven't listened to his interviews.

Reply Cain Morano August 15, 2018 Great summary of Kubrick. Now I understand why I didn't understand his movies when I was young ("What did I just watch? That was good or bad… I don't know"). I was used to watching one dimensional crap with the major points up front – no thinking required, just turn your brain off and watch the junk. It seems that overall the number, complexity, and interplay of narratives in film has decreased. There is no guessing in a lot of movies. Maybe we'll see another director like this in the next few years… Reply Paul Allen August 18, 2018 I’m just going to spontaneously watch “Orange”.

Reply Roman Soto November 25, 2018 I noticed a detail in Full Metal Jacket that I am so proud of finding on my own. So when drill sergeant Hartman was chanting this is my rifle this is my gun, and everyone else was chanting this is for firing this is for fun. Everyone yanks on there crotch twice when referring to their penis. However, while everyone pulled their crotch up private Pyle was the only one pulling it down, showing how out of sync he is with the rest of the core.

Thanks for the knowledge you share! ✌❤ Reply Vincent Van gogh March 30, 2019 so eleven's dad scientist used to be a soldier? Reply Feona Lee Jones April 18, 2019 Kubrick was the BEST director for his choice of music in his films…He actually used Ligeti's "Lontano" without his permission in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Of course Ligeti found out during the premiere that his music was being used, but Kubrick really did well with music choices. Also that was how Ligeti was discovered outside of his small new music scene at the time. Reply Feona Lee Jones April 18, 2019 Also it would be amazing if you did a deep analysis of a single Kubrick film in one video essay. Reply joojjoojstar k April 23, 2019 8:53 can someone explain me this pls? Reply Presque vu May 13, 2019 You are reading a little too much in to the "deliberate" composition of some of the shots, such as the reference to a "hard-on", which is just silly and makes no sense contextually. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. Also, Kubrick is not unique and pioneering in not blatantly spelling out aspects in his films. That is what novelists do, not film makers, though some are unimaginative and do just that in their clumsy expositions. Each film was carefully crafted to convey just what he intended; there are few ambiguities. For example, though the ending to 2001 was obscure, it was not meant to be open to interpretation, which artsy-fartsy critics like to waffle on about. He revealed precisely what he meant to convey in a rare interview in the '80s. The famous transition in 2001 of the bone to satellite is not ambiguous. It clearly represented the advancement of man by the adoption of tools, from "bone age" to space age in one simple transition. Just as the bone was used as a weapon, the satellite was also meant to be a weapon — an orbital nuclear bomb. This can be found in storyboard sketches which are probably in the archive. I do wish film commentators and academics would give the term "oeuvre" a rest. It does not make them sound intelligent and cultivated, just pretentious. The term "works" works. "Paradigm shift" is another overused and misused term. Spielberg should be edited out — he is not even in the same universe, let alone in the same class as Kubrick and knows nothing about sublime film-making. He is a ham-fisted popcorn film maker and ruined Kubrick's "AI" project with his mawkish, ridiculous rewrite. I gave you a thumbs up anyway as your intro was good. Reply Hughie Davies May 18, 2019 I find kubrick hilarious. I find almost all of his films really funny in a dark way . I can't think of another director that makes me laugh as much. Reply tierra viva June 7, 2019 this is just amazing, the work you put in your videos is just outstanding, you inspire me bro! Reply Koji Kaze July 13, 2019 I WISH we got to see his Napoleon movie. Reply Gianni Telesca August 11, 2019 The Greatest Director of all time has to be British (so to speak), something that Americans can never understand or be, a true Genius and a remarkable man…..Hollywood owns to Britain everything and Cinema owns everything to Actors such as Malcom Mcdowell Reply Mike Rose September 20, 2019 I’m a film buff, movie geek, history buff, a crazy cinematic, you name it but the way you describe your views on film far out weights the way I can describe my views, and I feel I can/would do a terrific job! the weight it has on culture itself, every day life and the variety of countless impacts it us on everyday people is very rewarding. Watching film is like being an old wise man with knowledge from different cultures, all different types of feelings, even aspects on history to present day political views, drama, horror you name it. From German expressionism films to modern found footage, I get I real joy out of cinema and it has a real profound impact on my life and I appreciate the videos you make because I can tell movies aren’t just a movie for you… you , like me , take time and to appreciate the little things.
