[Gary Huff] “[Chris Harlan] “Looked at the trailer for Boxes. I’d buy it today if I could find it.”
Somehow I came across on Vimeo (of all places) and saw it on there. Can’t find it anymore though.
I got to the Kubrick chapter in the Ronson book. It was terrific, and deals with all of the boxes and his sorting through them. I’m guessing that the contents of the exhibit come from some of those boxes.
The museum is screening all his films in order, and this weekend I got to see Fear and Desire, Killer’s Kiss, The Killing, and Paths of Glory. It was truly enlightening to see them in order from the silliness that is Fear and Desire to the masterpiece that is Paths of Glory. You can see in the progression of those four films Kubrick really finding himself; each film is more tightly controlled, more precise. Listening to Ronson talk about the boxes, in concert with the exhibit and the screenings has made me see Kubrick in a whole new light. What an inspiration.
Next weekend: Spartacus and Lolita.
