2012: A Kubrick Odyssey
A complete, chronological survey of the director’s oeuvre. From his largely unseen feature debut, Fear and Desire, to his posthumously relased final film, Eyes Wide Shut, this retrospective will offer viewers the opportunity to consider how Kubrick’s style progressed over forty-five years of filmmaking. Perhaps no other American director since Orson Welles realized a body of work within the studio system that was as uncompromising in its artistic ambitions as it was grand in scale. An innovator behind the scenes as well as onscreen, Kubrick changed the public perspective of the Hollywood auteur. A cerebral filmmaker who researched meticulously for his major works, Kubrick maintained control of every detail from preproduction through a film’s release. Though many of his films were met with some confusion or even outright hostility during their initial releases, they have become touchstones for film goers, filmmakers, academics, artists, musicians, writers, and mass culture alike. To many, they define the essence of modern cinema.
