For the Love of Stanley: Get Excited for Kubrick’s IFC Center Retrospective

"Anyone who has ever been privileged to direct a film also knows that, although it can be like trying to write War and Peace in a bumper car in an amusement park, when you finally get it right, there are not many joys in life that can equal the feeling," said Stanley Kubrick, who must have felt that particular brand of pleasure many, many times throughout his life. With a career that spanned from the 1950s to the late 90s, the meticulous and austere director was an auteur of the highest order, penetrating our screens with his vision and aesthetic sensibilities in a way that many have tried to replicate but none can touch. And with the release of Rodney Ascher’s upcoming documentary Room 237 about to have its theatrical release, New York’s IFC Center—starting today—will be a hosting a Kubrick retrospective, showing all 13 of his feature films from Spartacus to Eyes Wide Shut—and even the Spielberg-helmed A.I.

So to get you excited about their screenings and what you really need to make you see on the big screen, watch some of your favorite Kubrickian moments and listen to a selection of interviews with the iconic and brilliant director.
