Cíle předmětu
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: - be familiar with the Kubrick´s movies and with the production system of the 1960s - critically evaluate the oeuvre of Stanley Kubrick - have an understanding of the context of the reception of Kubrick´s movies
  • One of the most critically acclaimed and influential filmmakers of the twentieth century, Stanley Kubrick always tried to reach the largest possible audiences with his work. He started his career as a photojournalist working for Look, a mass circulation picture magazine, and many of his films (especially during the years 1960-1971) were box office hits, several of them remaining audience favorites today.
  • Ranging from low-budget noir thrillers to historical and futuristic epics, from war films to erotic dramas, from horror to topical movies (see the filmography below), Kubrick’s work explores fundamental questions about sexuality and violence, military organisations and combat, male bonding and marriage, human nature and social change. In doing so, he has produced iconic images (and sounds) representing key events and developments of the 20th century, including World War I, the threat of nuclear apocalypse, the space race, the Vietnam war, the rise of juvenile delinquency and family breakdown.
  • Kubrick’s work has inspired a huge amount of critical commentary, yet until recently critics and scholars (unlike biographers) have made little use of archival resources. This has begun to change, and scholars working in a range of disciplines have started to examine the traces that Kubrick’s work has left in archives, in particular in his own collection of film-related materials which was donated to the University of the Arts London in 2007. Such research offers new perspectives on Kubrick’s working methods, the manifold influences on his films, their themes and style as well as their marketing and reception.
  • This lecture series is reporting some of the results of the extensive research in the Stanley Kubrick Archive in London (as well as other archives) which I have conducted over the last five years. The lectures draw on my publications on Kubrick (see bibliography below), but also present a lot of as yet unpublished material.
  • The focus of this series is on what we might call Kubrick’s Science Fiction trilogy: Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and A Clockwork Orange (1971). We will also consider his early career, including the first film he ever made (a documentary short entitled Day of the Fight, 1951) and his debut feature (the war movie Fear and Desire, 1953), as well as developments from the 1970s to the 1990s leading to his collaboration with Steven Spielberg on A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001), another Science Fiction movie developed by Kubrick and completed by his friend.
  • Throughout these lectures, we will consider the production, marketing and reception of Kubrick’s films as well as their themes and style. The lectures are complemented by reading sections of James Naremore’s book On Kubrick (2007), which is much more focused on close and systematic film analysis, and on situating the films very broadly within post-war American culture.
