STANLEY KUBRICK

Kubrick’s

Style of Filmmaking

Controversy surrounded many of Kubrick’s films:

  • “On a surface level, Kubrick seemed willing to alienate the audience for his desired effects. Yet the constant control and manipulation of all things surrounding his work also freed it up to interpretation. One knows, for the most part, that one is watching a Kubrick movie – its authorship is clear.”

Dr. Strangelove

(1964)

  • Dr. Strangelove (1964) is producer/director Stanley Kubrick's satirical, provocative black comedy/fantasy regarding Cold War politics that features an accidental, pre-emptive nuclear attack.
  • The first commercially-successful political satire about nuclear war, Dr. Strangelove is a cynically objective, humorous response to the apocalyptic fears of the 1950s.

Dr. Strangelove

(1964)

  • The screenplay, co-authored by the director (with Terry Southern), was based on Peter George's novel Red Alert .
  • The film's apocalyptic theme was about how technology had gone haywire and had dominated humanity.
  • The film's anti-war fears actually became a plausible scenario, with the heated-up intensification of the Cold War and nuclear arms race.

Dr. Strangelove

(1964)

  • There were a total of four Academy Award nominations (with no wins) for the film: Best Picture, Best Actor (Peter Sellers), Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay:

Dr. Strangelove

(1964)

  • Dr. Strangelove is most memorable for Peter Sellers' Oscar-nominated, masterful performances in three distinct roles in two of the three set locales:
    • Dr. Strangelove: an eccentric, wheel-chair bound German scientist, a Presidential advisor, who has an uncontrollable mechanical hand that involuntarily makes Nazi salutes.
    • Mr. MerkinMuffley: an egg-headed President of the US with a bland American accent.
    • Group Captain Lionel Mandrake:a stuffy British Exchange Programme liaison officer with a crisp English accent.

Dr. Strangelove

(1964)

  • The funny, dark film cuts back and forth from three main set locations, each with their own distinctive camera styles:
    • A locked office in a sealed-off Air Force command base of a psychotic, impotent bomb-group commander who is zealously convinced that the Russians have devised water fluoridation to weaken American men - filmed with a cinema verite, documentary style.

(1964)

  • The funny, dark film cuts back and forth from three main set locations, each with their own distinctive camera styles:
    • The cramped, flight deck interior of the B-52 bomber sent to destroy the Soviets with a preemptive strike - led by a Southern-accented, gung-ho major - mainly filmed using close-up shots.

Dr. Strangelove

(1964)

  • The funny, dark film cuts back and forth from three main set locations, each with their own distinctive camera styles:
    • The Pentagon's huge underground War Room where an inept US President has convened an advisory staff - including a saber-rattling general, a Soviet ambassador, and a crazed German nuclear scientist speaking to each other over considerable distances - usually seen in long, static camera shots.

A Clockwork Orange (1971)

  • Alex narrates most of the film in “Nadsat”, a secret language comprising Slavic (especially Russian), English, and Cockney rhyming slang.
  • The film features disturbing, violent images, to comment about contemporary social, political, and economic subjects in a dystopian, future Britain.

A Clockwork Orange (1971)

  • The film’s central moral question is the definition of “Goodness.”
  • Kubrick: the film is a social satire dealing with the question of whether behavioral psychology and psychological conditioning are dangerous new weapons for a totalitarian government to use to impose vast controls on its citizens and turn them into little more than robots.

A Clockwork Orange (1971)

  • To convey the fantastic, dream-like quality of the story, Kubrick filmed with extreme wide-angle lenses and used fast- and slow motion to convey the mechanical nature of its bedroom sex scene or stylize the violence.
