About The Films

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

Stanley Kubrick's dazzling, Academy Award -winning achievement (Special Visual Effects) is an allegorical puzzle on the evolution of man and a compelling drama of man vs. machine. Featuring a stunning meld of music and motion, the film was also Oscar® nominated for Best Director and Best Screenplay. Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits the prehistoric age-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality.

A Clockwork Orange (1971)

Stomping, whopping, stealing, singing, tap-dancing, violating. Derby-topped hooligan Alex (Malcolm McDowell) has a good time - at the tragic expense of others. His journey from amoral punk to brainwashed proper citizen and back again forms the dynamic arc of Kubrick's future-shock vision of Anthony Burgess' novel. Controversial when first released, the film garnered three Academy Award nominations - Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay. Its power still entices, shocks and mesmerizes today.

Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

Kubrick's daring and controversial last film is a bracing psychosexual journey through a haunting dreamscape, a riveting suspense tale and a career milestone for stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Cruise plays a doctor who plunges into an erotic foray that threatens his marriage - and may ensnare him in a murder mystery - after his wife's (Kidman) admission of sexual longings. As the story sweeps from doubt and fear to self-discovery and reconciliation, Kubrick orchestrates it with masterful flourishes. His graceful tracking shots, rich colors and startling images are some of the bravura traits that show Kubrick as a filmmaker for the ages.

La Chaqueta Metálica (1987)

Un conjunto soberbio en la brillante saga de Stanley Kubrick sobre la Guerra de Vietnam y el proceso de deshumanización que convierte a las personas en asesinos entrenados. Joker (Matthew Modine), Animal Mother (Adam Baldwin), Gomer (Vincent D’Onofrio), Eightball (Dorian Harewood) y Cowboy (Arliss Howard) son los protagonistas que viven en el infierno de campamento de marines, llevado por el violento sargento D.I. (Lee Ermey) donde tendrán que superar un periodo de instrucción brutal. La acción es salvaje, la historia implacable y el diálogo salpicado de humor mordaz. Desde los comienzos del entrenamiento básico hasta la pesadilla vivida en el combate en Hue City, La Chaqueta Metálica ha sido siempre considerado un gran éxito de dirección cinematográfica.

  • Nuevo Metraje: La chaqueta metálica: Entre el bien y el mal
  • Tráiler Cinematográfico

The Shining (1980)

From a script he co-adapted from the Stephen King novel, Kubrick melds vivid performances, menacing settings, dreamlike tracking shots and shock after shock into a milestone of the macabre. The Shining is the director's epic tale of a man in a snowbound hotel descending into murderous delusions. In a signature role, Jack Nicholson ("Heeeere's Johnny!") stars as Jack Torrance, who's come to the elegant, isolated Overlook Hotel as off-season caretaker with his wife (Shelley Duvall) and son (Danny Lloyd).
