Stanley Kubrick Screenplays

Stanley Kubrick is, without question, one of the titans of cinema. His style, unique approach, and genre-jumping abilities are legendary. Known as mostly a director and producer, Kubrick wrote or co-wrote most of his masterpieces. When reading his screenplays you get a small window into the man himself. I love reading one of his scripts, then watching the film right away to see how it all panned out.

Before you jump into reading Stanley Kubrick’s Screenplays, take a listen to this rare interview of a 37-year-old Kubrick.

    Great resource here—thanks for it—but at least one link is bad. The Spartacus link downloads the script for Steve Jobs by Aaron Sorkin.

      Sorry about that. The link is fixed
