Cinematic genius Stanley Kubrick has made films that transcended genre and raised the bar in complexity of storytelling. Today, his influence can be seen everywhere- from television shows like Family Guy or The Simpsons to memes on Tumblr. Heeere’s Kubrick!, our month-long tribute, will run on Wednesdays at 7:30PM from April 4 – 25. Here is what to expect:
DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB – Comedy about what would happen if the nuclear codes get in the wrong hands… Russians, atomic bombs, fluoride in the water, and the doomsday machine.
THE SHINING – The Stanley Hotel, the Grady twins… you know this one… easily one of the most terrifying horror films ever made.
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE – Teenage rebellion takes an ultra-violent turn.
FULL METAL JACKET – Hard core war film all the way with a killer soundtrack.
