Several years ago, Seth Winston, my teacher, my friend, and my fellow Kubrick fan, invited me to an exclusive screening of Jan Harlan’s feature-length documentary, “STANLEY KUBRICK – A Life In Pictures,” at the Academy Theater on Wilshire in Beverly Hills. Needless to say, it was an evening I would not soon forget. The film offered a rare glimpse, not just behind the scenes of some of my favorite films of all time, but also into the private life of their legendary director.
Unfortunately, as wonderful as the documentary was, few of my colleagues have had the opportunity to see it, since the film can only be purchased as part of the Stanley Kubrick Collection box set of DVDs. (I had to buy mine second-hand on eBay.) However, fortunately, with the advent of Youtube, clips of this documentary can now be viewed online. If you have a moment to spare, I highly recommend that you check them out. Film buffs and casual moviegoers alike will no doubt enjoy the anecdotes such luminaries as Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, and Sydney Pollack (just to name a few!) share of the man who was perhaps the greatest luminary in cinema history.
The following clip features a Charlie Rose interview with Christiane Kubrick (Kubrick’s widow), Jan Harlan (Kubrick’s producer and brother-in-law), and the always energetic Martin Scorsese, in its entirety. It's a great prelude to the documentary, in my opinion. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
