I will be honest and admit that I wasn’t hugely familar with the work of director, Stanley Kubrick. Of course I’d seen some of the more iconic movies: A Clockwork Orange, The Shinning, and his last Eyes Wide Shut. But I’m not really a cinephile (I LOVE film but I’m more of a TV expert, lol) so a great deal of his work I knew of but had never seen when I visited the LACMA Exhibit of Kubrick’s work. 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! The collection is so informative and so expansive that even if you haven’t seen all of his films, you can enjoy this look into the creative process of one of cinema’s most talented artists. It’s a touring exhibit so if it comes to a city near you, I highly encourage you to go! But go with friends because some of the stuff isscary (particularly those little girls from The Shinning) haha!
