South Florida Premiere

Kubrick By Kubrick

Directed by Grégory Monro

France | 73 minutes | 2020

Stanley Kubrick's mark on the legacy of cinema can never be measured. He was a giant in his field, his great works resembling pristine pieces of art, studied by students and masters alike, all searching for answers their maker was notoriously reticent to give. While he is among the most scrutinized filmmakers that ever lived, the chance to hear Kubrick’s own words was a rarity — until now. Unspooling an exclusive trove of never-before-heard recordings of detailed interviews with the mythic Jewish director spanning 30 years that ruminate on his philosophies, documentarian Grégory Monro weaves a tapestry of archival footage with the rhythm and care of a consummate historian relishing in his discoveries. Bouncing between the exquisitely crafted worlds of 2001: A Space Odyssey and Barry Lyndon and the ominous terrain of A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, and Full Metal Jacket, this rhapsodic documentary teases out some of the notoriously reclusive filmmaker’s inspirations — from Jungian philosophy to anti-authoritarian politics — as it celebrates the mysteries and intricacies inherent in his work. No stranger to investigating legends of the screen, Monro's exuberant and lyrical cinematic essay takes viewers on a journey beyond Jupiter, celebrating the essence of what film means to those who make it —and those who watch it.
