Enjoy an 11-Minute Interview with Stanley Kubrick and Some of His Best Scenes

Perhaps it’s the spirit of Room 237‘s imminent release, but our cinemaic collective unconscious seems to be quite fixated on Stanley Kubrick as of late—you know, more so than usual. But it’s interesting that a director that left us over a decade ago still continues to make news and excite with his legacy on a daily basis. And because the genius auteur is no longer around to grace us with his brilliance, discovering new insights into his complex mind and creative process is always more than welcome. And in a recently surfaced 11-minute interview with French film critic Michel Ciment, we get the chance to hear Kubrick discuss Barry Lyndon, The Shining, and Full Metal Jacket—so you’ll definitely need to pause what you’re doing and enjoy this. Plus, have a look back on some of the meticulous and director’s finest moments from The Killing to Eyes Wide Shut.
