Kubrick. Even the name sounds geometrical, weighty. Who isn’t in awe of the creative monolith of Mr. Stanley Kubrick?

I went to the show with the little guy, so forgive the out of focus pix. I debated whether I should even put them up. Or whether I should go back alone to take better pictures… I was fooling myself. Who’s got the time, really?

But hey, an out-of-focus pic is better than nothing. I was literally pulled in every direction and only had my iphone (3GS, sigh) because dealing with the mommy bag, and real camera and a 3 year old was not happening.

I think these are from “Eyes Wide Shut.” Sorry couldn’t write anything down either. You get the jist.

Here are some of Kubrick’s camera lenses. He was such a technician as well as having a superb eye.

Lolita slides Kubrick

I love how they displayed the slides from “Lolita.”

I almost gasped when I saw this. Of course one of the most famous film costumes, and my camera is out of focus. Sigh. Apologies.

kubrick movie posters

Posters. I still crave that “Lolita” one. Where can I get those sunglasses?!!

It was such a well-rounded show. From his noir roots, to “Full Metal Jacket,” annotated scripts and set models, this is a show for all film fans, not just Kubrick devotees.

But wait! There’s more…
