I will be honest and admit that I wasnâ€™t hugely familar with the work of director, Stanley Kubrick. Â Of course Iâ€™d seen some of the more iconic movies:Â A Clockwork Orange, The Shinning,Â and his lastÂ Eyes Wide Shut. But Iâ€™m not really a cinephileÂ (I LOVE film but Iâ€™m more of a TV expert, lol) so a great deal of his work I knew of but had never seen when I visited theÂ LACMA Exhibit of Kubrickâ€™s work. Â Still, it was FASCINATING and wonderful! I am a huge fan of understanding what inspires people and how masters of any trade begin their journeys. This exhibit shares it all. There’s room after room of production artifacts: notes, screenplay drafts, sketches, scale models! Â The collection is so informative and so expansive that even if you havenâ€™t seen all of his films, you can enjoy this look into the creative process of one of cinemaâ€™s most talented artists. Itâ€™s a touring exhibit so if it comes to a city near you, I highly encourage you to go! Â But go with friends because some of the stuff isscaryÂ (particularly those little girls fromÂ The Shinning) haha!
