Room 237's Latest Poster Hints At Its Twisting Center
While there were scads of remarkable movies at NYFF this year, none was as fun to watch in a crowd as Room 237. Leaping from one man's insistence that the whole film is Kubrick's confession for a historical deception, to other devoted fan's claims The Shining is about the Nazis, or the white man's destruction of the Native Americans, it's easy to get entangled in a group titter.
Letter Reveals Why Kubrick Worried About Offending IBM With 2001: A Space Odyssey
Grateful for their consultations and the contribution of the company's Logo to the film, Kubrick had planned to include IBM in the end credits. But before those were finalized he wanted to be sure this thanks would be welcomed by the company, since the computer at the movie's center is essentially a cold-blooded murderer.

17 Extra Minutes Of 2001: A Space Odyssey Discovered In Vault
While 17 extra minutes of that film could potentially be mind numbing, it will still be interesting to see what else Kubrick had up his sleeve for 2001. The movie itself could have been executed a bit better

Sam Rockwell And Scarlett Johansson To Head Lost Kubrick Film
Since 2006, it is likely that the project has changed hands, and likely more reputable ones (after all, this is a Kubrick script we are talking about here). The whole concept of another film from the great director
Kubrick Faked The Moon Landing And The Shining Proves It
I donít buy into conspiracy theories, especially not conspiracy theories as utterly ridiculous as this one: Stanley Kubrick faked the moon landing and then left clues admitting what heíd done in The Shining. Thatís the premise being put forward
The Origins Of HAL 9000's Singing Revealed
Though it's not a horror movie, Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey still contains some of the scariest stuff I have seen in a film. No, I'm not talking about the giant baby, but rather HAL 9000, the on-board computer system of Spaceship Discovery
