Stanley Kubrick Letter Threatens MGM Studio Head!
It has been more than four decades since Stanley Kubrick blew minds with “2001: A Space Odyssey,” and even to this day, nearly every frame of the 142-minute movie continues to obsessed fans. So when this letter started making the rounds online everyone just believed it because of Stanley’s reputation.
Is Stanley Kubrick the biggest badass director to ever live? I like to think so and when this letter popped up I fell in love a bit more.
The letter is dated 1970, and by the time “2010” dropped in 1984, Kubrick had relaxed a bit, and given the film project, his sort of half-blessing and even appeared in a cameo (as an illustration on a Time magazine cover). True or not, the letter is pretty AWESOME. Check it all out above.
Vimeo user Jim Casey put together a 3-minute reel highlighting the “charms” of Stanley Kubrick’s film, though that’s not the first word I’d use to describe the masterpiece that is “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Nevertheless, it’s a journey through many of the striking images from the movie and a reminder of how breathtaking it all still is. We miss you, Stanley!
