“Heeeeeeere’s Johnny!” Just in time for the holiday season, we’ve prepared a premium podcast that many of you have been demanding for a long time: a Stanley Kubrick retrospective. On this episode we cover five of his most iconic films including Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, and of course the perennial Christmas classic, Eyes Wide Shut. Discussion topics include his often imitated style and special effect innovations, the unforgettable use of classical music, the many controversies and the lasting cultural impact of his work. Why are there so many wild interpretations of The Shining and what is Frank’s newfound “monarchy theory”? Did 2001: A Space Odyssey truly represent a cinematic paradigm shift and how much did Jay pay for the 4K release? Is Stanley Kubrick indisputably one of the greatest filmmakers of all time? Come and get one in the yarbles and download this month’s premium podcast below.
