    Jeff Blyth On The Helicopter Shadow in The Shining

    I only recently came across the Kubrick FAQ website and noticed the #1 question that comes up about the helicopter shadow in "The Shining." Perhaps I can contribute a little bit of insight into the answer. I was the helicopter cameraman on the shoot, working for MacGillivray-Freeman Films at the time.
    Good read.

    Not-Safe-For-Work Trailer For The Clockwork Orange Meta-Movie, Alex - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    It would seem that Florian Frerichs‘ Alex is something of a tribute to Stanley Kubrick‘s film of A Clockwork Orange, a follow up that’s not really a sequel. Here’s the official blurb, with thanks to Quiet Earth for the heads up:

    In the near future the society of a megalopolis is divided into two fractions: on one side a super-rich minority, led by the ruthless dictator Lucius (Werner Daehn), living a life of debauchery and decadence. On the other side the vast majority, dwelling in different degrees of nearly unbearable poverty.

    When the young Frederick (Nikolai Kinski) comes in possession of the partial copy of a long forbidden Stanley Kubrick movie, it sparks a growing movement amongst the city’s formerly aimless youths, developing fast into serious opposition to the ruling system, which retaliates with rapidly increasing brutality. Frederick becomes Alex, his friends the new droogs. But are they even aware of the consequences of their actions?

    Nikolai Kinski is the son of Klaus Kinski. I’m sure that alone was enough to get him an audition at least.

    I think it’s interesting to note that the character of Frederick only gets a hold of a “partial copy” of the film. On the one hand, this might suggest that his interpretation is based on only seeing a section of the film, which could lead to an implication that the ‘part film’ transforms Frederick – a psychologically flimsy position. I do hope there’s not a sequence where he’s ‘cured’ by being show the remainder…

    But do note that Kubrick based his film on only the incomplete US version of Anthony Burgess’ novel, missing the redemptive final chapter that the director later called “inconsistent” and “unconvincing.” This might have something more to do with it.

    In any case, here’s the trailer. It’s technically not work-safe, I’d think.

    Shining Prequel To Be Written By Glen Mazzara, Sometime Walking Dead Showrunner - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    According to Deadline, Mazzara is writing the screenplay for The Overlook Hotel. Warner Bros. will fund and release the film, which I’m sure they’d never have done while Stanley Kubrick was alive. As previously reported, Bradley Fischer, James Vanderbilt and Laeta Kalogridis at Mythology Entertainment will produce the film.
    Insert joke about pacing here.

    Saw it about a week ago. Definite must-see for any hardcore Shining/Kubrick fan.

    Some of the theories and "observations" presented in ROOM 237 are beyond stupid, IMO.

    But I thought some of the other ones are pretty astute, or at least really interesting. Most of this stuff I'd never caught before, even though I've seen the movie countless times. And after watching it, I think I have a better understanding of why Kubrick shot so many takes of each scene and obsessed over editing so much.

    I'm sure a lot of you have seen this:

    Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures (2001) - IMDb

    There were interviews with a lot of actors/crew he'd worked with, including Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall, who both talked about how tough SK was on Duvall during filming of The Shining--almost to the point of abuse--possibly to get a more authentic performance out of her.

    Just a fascinating guy.

    Watch: 55-Minute Oral History Of Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining' | The Playlist

    Put together by eight students in the Film and Television program in the School of Creative Arts at the University of Hertfordshire as a project to help them earn live work experience as part of their undergraduate degree, comes a generous 55-minute oral history of "The Shining" entitled "(Extended) Staircases To Nowhere: Making Stanley Kubrick's The Shining." (Um, awesome school assignment). The history of the film is done via interviews and includes participation by producer Jan Harlan and Kubrick's wife, Christiane, and features reminiscences from key crew on the movie including: Brian Cook - 1st AD; Mick Mason - Camera Technician; Ray Merrin - Post-Production Sound; Doug Milsome - 1st AC and Second Unit Camera; Kelvin Pike - Camera Operator; Ron Punter - Scenic Artist; June Randall - Continuity and Julian Senior - Warner Bros. Publicity. A pretty great lineup to tell the tale.

    Read: Rare 1970 Book 'The Making Of Stanley Kubrick's 2001' | The Playlist

    he folks over at Cinephilia And Beyond have generously put the rare, out-of-print book "The Making Of Kubrick's 2001" online for your perusal and it's definitely worth a peek. And this isn't just some cobbled together studio job. It's penned by Jerome Agel, co-author of Buckminster Fuller's "I Seem To Be A Verb" and collaborator with Marshall McLuhan on "The Medium Is The Massage" and "War And Peace In The Global Village," and it goes pretty deep: among other things, it includes the original Arthur C. Clarke short story "The Sentinel" that inspired the movie, a rare Kubrick interview with Playboy magazine, reviews, a massive photo insert, plus insights from all kinds of people that worked on the movie.
    ****in' cool!
