For those of us who absolutely love Stanley Kubrick, but haven't been anywhere near the LA area for the past 8 months, we might be pretty disappointed about not being able to go see his exhibit at LACMA (this also goes for all of you Angelenos who couldn't make it, either.) The exhibit consisted of a vast array of lenses and cameras he used, tons of movie posters, models, props, and costumes from his most iconic films as well as his unfinished ones. Well, never fear, because you can just take the video tour. Take a walk through Kubrickian film history after the jump.
The Stanley Kubrick exhibit has been at LACMA (Los Angeles County Art Museum) since November 1st, but unfortunately it will be closed as of today. If you're wondering what exactly the exhibit consisted of, the LACMA website gives us an idea:
The exhibition covers the breadth of Kubrick’s practice, beginning with his early photographs for Look magazine, taken in the 1940s, and continuing with his groundbreaking directorial achievements of the 1950s through the 1990s. His films are represented through a selection of annotated scripts, production photography, lenses and cameras, set models, costumes, and props. In addition, the exhibition explores Napoleon and The Aryan Papers, two projects that Kubrick never completed, as well as the technological advances developed and utilized by Kubrick and his team.
We love to cover Stanley Kubrick here at NFS, so if you're feeling extra studious, check out some of our in-depth analyses of the great auteur. And if you're feeling extra extra studious, give Kubrick's Napoleon screenplay a read.
So, without further ado -- the video tour.
If you were able to make it to the Kubrick Exhibit, let us know what you thought of it in the comments. What was the coolest thing you saw there?
