"Alexander Walker's Stanley Kubrick, Director, first published in 1971, is the only book ever written with Kubrick's cooperation. This new edition, revised and expanded to include every Kubrick film from A Clockwork Orange to Full Metal Jacket to Eyes Wide Shut - the just-released erotic thriller starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman - again received the approval of the reclusive director, who before his death allowed the use of illustrations taken directly from his films' frames." "In addition to being fully authorized, Stanley Kubrick, Director is a dissection of how Kubrick conceived, shot, and created his films, as well as a frame-by-frame examination of the inimitable style that infuses every Kubrick movie, from the pitch-perfect hilarity of Lolita to the icy supremacy of 2001: A Space Odyssey to the baroque horror of The Shining."--Jacket

Stanley Kubrick directs by Alexander Walker( Book )

15 editions published between 1971 and 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tells how Stanley Kubrick makes films--how he translates his won vision of a story into cinematic terms, finding original ways to use camera angles and camera movement, lighting, composition, depth, and other techniques; and how he edits to achieve jarring juxtapositions, suspense and surprise, a heightened sense of time, and a perfectly crystallized total concept. The book also shows how his films relate to one another. The more than 350 photographs illustrate the visual flow of Paths of Glory, Dr. Strange love, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and A Clockwork Orange, as well as the methods used in Killer's Kiss, The Killing, and Lolita."--back cover
