Stanley Kubrick, 2001: A Space Odyssey, 1965–68;GB/United States
There are few filmmakers from the twentieth century who carry such weight as Stanley Kubrick; responsible for explorations of both our darkest inner impulses and galaxies far away. His films have made a tremendous mark on contemporary filmmaking and his distinct aesthetic is instantly recognizable. If you’re looking to learn more about this cinematic legend, head to the Design Museum in London, which opens an extensive exhibition on Kubrick this week. “You’ll see step by step how Kubrick created genre-defining worlds for his films and relive iconic scenes from The Shining, Eyes Wide Shut, A Clockwork Orange, Full Metal Jacket and 2001: A Space Odyssey.” Plus, don’t miss Kubrick season at the BFI Southbank which runs through into May.
