Stanley Kubrick Filmforum "The XXth Century Machine"

Family portraits: Kubrick noir and horror



This session looks at Kubrick’s investigation of the social, political and cultural structures of contemporary Western societies by exploring destructive social contexts, which, though apparently precisely designed, collapse time after time due to negligence and a depressing collective lack of reflection and responsibility, generally with tragic personal consequences.

Debate on the following films: Killer’s Kiss (1955), The killing (1956), Lolita (1962), The shining (1980), Eyes wide shut (1999).
