Abstract:

Despite the infamous reputation of the enigmatic Stanley Kubrick, Modine couldn't refuse his offer. Faced with the prospects of a career-defining role and mentorship by a cinematic great, the 24-year-old actor arrived in London armed with a camera and a notebook to record his own on-set reportage, preparation for his role as a Marine Corps journalist. But expectations eroded as a strange sickness pervaded the set, a horrific accident sidelined a principal, and an unexpected rivalry arose with a co-star. As months dragged on, Modine realized he was falling victim to a manipulative mind-game of the Grand Master himself. By the time filming ended a year and a half later, Modine had shot hundreds of photos and written countless entries. Only now--after two decades and the death of Kubrick--can Modine look back on his images and words, a coming-of-age drama set against the backdrop of Kubrick's Vietnam saga.--From publisher description.
