I hope you’ve all had a lovely bank holiday. I was rooting around on the internet a few days ago and came across a trailer for the More4 Kubrick Season from 2008. I didn’t see it when it aired originally and I’m glad I came across it recently. It got me thinking about having my own private Kubrick Season, so what I’ll be doing is watching all Kubrick’s films in the coming weeks and posting my thoughts on them.
As the trailer is set around The Shining, I’ll watch that first. Until then, check out the trailer below. It’s a great trailer, going around the back stage of a set from The Shining, all in the point of view of the director - moving the camera in a way very similarly to how he would’ve done it in a film of his own. I love the iconography and the symmetry used - it’s all very Kubrickian!
