All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy (or maybe Steven)

Probably the greatest director is Stanley Kubrick. We were blown away when we saw 2001 in a Cinerama theater, as well as when we saw Clockwork. Tonight the shinin is on. The author of that book preferred his pedestrian movie to that of Kubrick’s great one. Hmmm, such judgment. Maybe we’ll take a pass on his political views.

    In middle school all the other boys talked about how cool 2001 was. When I finally got around to seeing it, I ended up being disappointed. I would readily concede the special effects were very good for back in the day, but I guess the movie, particularly the beginning an end were a little too abstract for me.

    I don’t believe Kubrick ever made anything I liked, but I suppose he still could be the greatest director ever. I readily admit to being a Philistine.
