    Stanley Kubrick’s Projection Memo For ‘Barry Lyndon’; David Lynch Wanted ‘Mulholland Drive’ Louder > The Playlist

    In case you’ve missed it, there has been a minor storm of controversy brewing over Warner Bros.’ recent release of Stanley Kubrick‘s masterful “Barry Lyndon” on BluRay. The bone of contention is that the current release crops the picture with a 1.77 aspect ratio, which Warner Bros. insists complies with the wishes of the late Kubrick. However, Glenn Kenny has unearthed the smoking gun as it were, receiving a copy of the instructions Stanley Kubrick sent to projectionists insisting on a screen format of 1.66 “and in no event at less than 1:75.”
    If this controversy interests you at all, you must read this:

    Gilliam is another one who obsesses on aspect ratio. Hey, back in the day, before home viewing...I am sure it was more important.

    Should I see Barry Lyndon? I haven't to this point, has it aged well?

    there are some gorgeous shots in that movie, but no... and it's always been his most boring film.

    correction, it's his second most boring film after that wretched Eyes Wide Shut.

    All in all the cinematography of EYES WIDE SHUT is fail.

    Letters of Note: You are the greatest film-maker at work today

    Stanley Kubrick wrote the following gushing letter of praise in 1960 to the man he considered to be "the greatest film-maker at work today," and who he later cited as a major influence on his work: Ingmar Bergman. Bear in mind also that Kubrick was only 31 years of age at the time and yet to produce the masterpieces he is now widely remembered for; Bergman was ten years his senior. Altogether a wonderful snapshot.

    I don't think that I have compared Kubrick to Bergman much, but now that I think about it, I can see some similarities.

    I am always fascinated to read about who my favorite directors drew inspiration from. Alfred Hitchcock said that he thought Luis Bunuel was the greatest director.

    I picked up the BluRay collection this weekend. Can't wait to dig into it.
