Stanley Kubrick and The Limits of Control
It’s time for a little reader participation. Last night while I was at work, I managed to watch three, count them, three Stanley Kubrick films. Before last night, I had only seen two. It was a good night. The first was the unedited version of Eyes Wide Shut (believe it or not, I prefer the version the US released in theatres), the second: A Clockwork Orange, and third, 2001: A Space Odyssey. Of the five Kubrick films I’ve seen, there is one that is clearly my favorite, but I won’t say which one for now, because I want you all to vote! Here’s the first poll Bitchin’ Film Reviews has ever featured. Vote! (I don’t think you can do this in googlereader, sorry)
Before the screening of Hunger I saw on Monday, I saw this trailer:
I’m not that familiar with Jim Jarmusch’s work (I loved Broken Flowers, but had to turn Dead Man off), but this trailer looks fantastic. The cast looks fantastic, especially with Tilda Swinton in that bitchin’ blonde wig. Has anyone seen this?
