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.
