    Stanley Kubrick stato un grande artista e un uomo dalle molte singolarit.Autore leggendario, genio innovatore del cinema, uomo schivo e riservato, il suo progressivo isolarsi dal mondo aveva generato ogni sorta di mito sulle sue presunte manie.Raccontarne la storia pu dare conto, in qualche misura, delle ragioni che stanno dietro alle sue opere Questa mi pare l unica domanda che il biografo di un artista dovrebbe porsi, salvo che la vita dell artista in questione sia, di per s , cos interessante da costituire di per s un buon motivo per un racconto.Leggendo il libro di Lobrutto, non pare che sia questo il caso di Kubrick, la cui vita privata non aveva nulla di eccezionale, a ben vedere.Infanzia tranquilla, risultati scolastici altalenanti, precoce propensione per le arti visive la fotografia , grande determinazione e un carattere oscillante tra la ritrosia e la bonomia.La sua ritrosia appare prevalentemente dedicata allo star system hollywoodiano, che Kubrick rifuggiva, mentre sono innumerevoli le testimonianze che lo descrivono come un uomo cordiale e gentile.Scartata l ipotesi di raccontare SK come una specie di genio pazzo o di artista romantico, r...

    Solid biography of the reclusive and brilliant director, ending in the mid 90s before Eyes Wide Shut Along with the documentary Stanley Kubrick A Life In Pictures , this is probably as much as we ll ever find out about him.

    This is an encompassing, very detailed, and often very technical exploration of Kubrick s filmmaking up until and before Eyes Wide Shut Which is fine with me, as that one does not do anything for me This means there is long, in depth chapter on each of the following 1987 Full Metal Jacket pivotal bathroom set designed per Kubrick 1980 The Shining SteadiCam debut Kubrick saw every ghost story as hopeful and tormented Duvall into a believable performance 1975 Barry Lyndon not all candlelight, even MiniBrutes were used whatever to mock natural light in an early adoption of super fase lenses 1971 A Clockwork Orange Amid controversy over ultra violence, withdrawn from British release in 1973 by Warner Brothers at the request of Kubrick 1968 2001 A Space Odyssey Clarke run through the wringer in writing to Kubrick s demand Much about the ultimate trip Star Child ending 1964 Dr Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb Sellers had to be convinced to play through role, again 1962 Lolita Sellers had to be convinced to ...

    Although it s not a very good read if you re looking to tap into the mind of Kubrick and understand his thought process, it does offer great interviews with co workers and start to finish recounts of all of his films bar Eyes Wide Shut A few things here and there throug...

    I wish Goodreads had the option of marking a book abandoned rather than read I abandoned this one It just couldn t hold my interest I thought I would like its thoroughness, but it turns out that I did not If you were doing some scholarly research on Kubrick, you ...

    Questo libro stato una penosa delusione Ho dovuto leggerlo per preparare l esame di storia del cinema e ammetto che avevo buone aspettative a riguardo s rivelato pedante, scritto mediamente male e in gran parte confusionario.Credo che in parte la colpa sia del traduttore ci sono alcuni passaggi che sono stati tradotti in maniera pedestre come parenti anzich genitori , per dirne una per il costo e il tipo di libro questi errori sono assolutamente inaccettabili Inoltre l autore ci ha messo del suo scritto nella prefazione che ha impiegato molti anni a raggruppare le fonti che gli hanno fornito il necessario per scrivere questa biografia e, forse, nell esagerazione di notizie si perso E un susseguirsi di date fuorvianti, intere frasi a cui sembra mancare il soggetto, divagaz...

    While I have read a few books analyzing Kubrick s films, I have never read a proper biography of him And man, is this a proper biography LoBrutto did an insane amount of research that s daunting at first He has Kubrick s high school GPA in the early chapters Seriously However, that level of detail is rewarding as he gets into Kubrick s individual movies Like Hitchcock, Kubrick is a master I revere and learning behind the scenes history made this book a fleet 500 pages At first, I was annoyed this was written in 1996 when Kubrick hadn t made Eyes Wide Shut yet I would ve loved one chapter on that movie in LoBrutto s hands But I like the bittersweet, time capsule quality this book has not knowing...

    La migliore delle due biografie un ottimo lavoro di ricerca per una mole impressionante di notizie, aneddoti sulla lavorazione dei film, racconti e testimonianze sui processi creativi e le tecniche usate dal regista, raccolti con stile sobrio anche se leggermente pia...

    An interesting read but is seriously lacking in detail and contains many mistakes Could have been better researched Also at times it becomes of a biography of people Kubrick knew than it is about Kubrick Still, its good to read about the man s life in such a linear fashion.
