Stanley Kubrick: Quotes (35 person items)

""We're all children of Kubrick, aren't we? Is there anything you can do that he hasn't already done?" "It's so hard to do anything that doesn't owe some kind of debt to what Stanley Kubrick did with music in movies. Inevitably, you're going to end up doing something that he's probably already done before. It always seem like we're falling behind whatever he came up with. 'Singin' in the Rain'' in Clockwork Orange — that was the first time I became so aware of music in movies. So no matter how"

"Day 03 - Your favorite director Technically not my favorite (that'd be QT), but he's a close second. Admittedly PT Anderson hasn't made many films in his career so far, but all of his films have highly impressed me (Magnolia ranks as my second favorite film of all-time). I could also have said: the Coen Brothers, Terry Gilliam, Tim Burton, Christopher Nolan, David Fincher, Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, and several others."

Great New Directors (21 person items)

""Boogie Nights" was a great movie and "Punch-Drunk Love" is clearly undervalued, having said that, I still have to see 2 of his films which are considered masterpieces; it's taking him some time to see make his next proyect, but i think that we should let him in peace."
