Room 237 (2013) Blu-ray cover artRoom 237
Blu-ray
Directed by Rodney Ascher
Starring Bill Blakemoor, Geoffrey Cocks, and Juli Kearns
IFC Midnight/MPI Home Video
Release Date: September 24, 2013

Even though I tend not to believe most fan theories regarding hidden details and messages in certain classic films I have to appreciate the imagination and insight that goes into their creation. It’s amazing when your love of a movie inspires you to look at it again with a modestly skewed perspective to see what you may have missed before, and then to try and interpret what it all means. I may not buy into the theory that Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon functions as an alternate soundtrack to The Wizard of Oz, but for every five people who are told that same theory for the first time at least one of them will sneak away from the others to their nearest Barnes & Noble to grab the Moon CD and Oz DVD so they can test it out for themselves.

If you haven’t checked it out yet, my fellow G.O.D. standing for the horror fans, FamousMonster, put together an awesome 31 Days of Horror list to get you all ready for Halloween this year. While running through his list, I came across one film that grabbed my consideration immediately, for I had not seen it before: Room 237.

That’s because it’s a documentary, and not a horror flick. Not that I do not watch documentaries (I like a doco thing), but I’d just never seen it before. Room 237’s mission is simple – get in touch with as many Stanley Kubrick enthusiasts as possible and ask them to deliver their differed and in-depth interpretations of the filmmaker’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining.

Remembering Film Director Stanley Kubrick On What Would Have Been His 85th Birthday

Stanley Kubrick

Stanley Kubrick, starkly original filmmaker, director of some of the all-time great, most loved and dissected and in a way polarizing cinema, would have been 85 today. Kubrick passed away back on March 7th, 1999.

The essence of Kubrick runs rampant through almost every film maker and film buff who followed his works. American born, but lived overseas in England for most of his life, Kubrick gave a classy sensibility to most of his films, films that were rich in texture, nature, narrative, cinematography, and acting, with a flair and keen sensibility for music placement, or set pieces that were dense and slim in look, almost with a frostbitten clinical approach, which became his calling card and instantly synonymous with the Kubrick name and the Kubrickian legend.

2001: A Space Odyssey Image

Back in 1970 a book came out titled The Making of Kubrick’s 2001, an observation and exploration of the 1968 Stanley Kubrick classic 2001: A Space Odyssey edited by Jerome Agel.

Many books have been printed in relation to the movie, but none like this one. Yet for some reason, the book is no longer in print, and is very rare. Until now, that is. The entire 372-page (including cover and back) book has been made available online for the world to enjoy.

The book offers all kinds of great 2001 content, including the first report of Kubrick and MGM making a new movie titled Journey Beyond the Stars; the full short story that the movie was adapted from, The Sentinel by Arthur C. Clarke; strips from MAD Magazine poking fun at the movie; and a wealth of images and quotes and much more.

You can check out every page of The Making of Kubrick’s 2001 below now.

Stanley Kubrick’s Unmade ‘Napoleon’ Script Being Developed For TV By Steven Spielberg

Napoleon

Stanley Kubrick was and always shall be one of the greatest filmmakers in the history of the moving image. Over the course of a forty-six-year career in directing he made thirteen films, many of them timeless classics and a few undisputed masterpieces that not only influenced generations of filmmakers to come but also forever changed the way films are made and regarded.

Kubrick was a master whose legacy in cinema will endure forever in the continuing impact his films have on the moviegoers who discover them and the directors who studied his works and used the lessons they learned to shape their own careers, including Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan, James Cameron, Michael Mann, Wes Anderson, Lars Von Trier, and of course Steven Spielberg.

The Shining Image (1980)

The world of cinema has not been the same since Stanley Kubrick died in March 1999, several months before the theatrical release of what turned out to be his final film, Eyes Wide Shut. There is no denying that Kubrick’s passing left many a devoted follower of his work in total shock, but the legacy of classic films the director left behind helped them to deal with the loss very well.

One of Kubrick’s most popular movies was his 1980 Stephen King adaptation The Shining and since its release more than three decades ago, the film has been widely hailed as one of the greatest horror movies of all time. It has inspired countless parodies, most memorably being the segment “The Shinning” in the “Treehouse of Horror V” episode of The Simpsons, and documentaries devoted to playfully deconstructing the minutiae of the director’s meticulously crafted vision of terror and isolation in a snowbound Colorado hotel. The box office success of The Shining cemented Kubrick’s reputation as a master filmmaker who could work in practically any genre with amazing results and further established lead actor Jack Nicholson as one of the most unconventional and watchable movie stars in show business and worth every dollar of his generous salary.

Stanley Kubrick’s Long Lost Debut ‘Fear and Desire’ Premieres On Blu-ray In October

Fear and Desire

When filmmaker Stanley Kubrick died in March 1999 a giant had passed from this mortal coil. Kubrick left behind an incredible body of work, and the majority of his films are regarded as classic, groundbreaking works of cinema. Nearly all of his filmography is available on DVD and Blu-ray, with one glaring exception: Fear and Desire, Kubrick’s 1953 directorial debut.

The movie tells the tale of a squad of soldiers who must make their way through enemy territory to rejoin their unit. Along the way they capture a young peasant girl (Virginia Leith) and tie her to a tree. She is subsequently tormented by a mentally unbalanced soldier played by future filmmaker Paul Mazursky. The squad soon determines the location of an enemy base and embark on a dangerous mission to kill its commanding officer.

The Shining (1980)

Stanley Kubrick‘s classic 1980 adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel The Shining was probably the last great horror film of the decade that gave us such timeless scare fests as The Exorcist, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Carrie, and Halloween. Though the snobbish cinemaphiles are reluctant to group The Shining in with the director’s other masterworks of the silver screen the movie has endured and grown in popularity over the past three decades. It is now regarded as one of the greatest horror films ever made.

An 80-second video collage of every zoom shot from The Shining has been assembled by Ian Kammer. You can watch it here below.
