As some of you may already know, we’ve got a healthy obsession interest here at Mat Dolphin with all things Stanley Kubrick. The man’s drive, attention to detail, conceptual thinking and never-ending struggle for perfection is a constant source of interest and inspiration and rarely a week goes by without another interesting fact, anecdote or article being discussed around the studio. In short, we’re fans. With that in mind, I thought it would be a good idea to share some of these insights and share some Kubrick love.
Kubrick by Design is our new regular feature on the blog, the aim being to shine some light on one of the greatest creative minds on recent history. I’ll be posting links, articles, images, sites, quotes, clips and any other interesting Stanley-related material which might be of interest. Regardless of whether you’re already a certified aficionado or have no idea who I’m talking about, hopefully you’ll find something of interest.
First up (and a good initiation for those who are unaware of the his work), a lengthy account by Jon Ronson of the Guardian of his numerous visits to Kubricks home and taking a peek into the infamous boxes.
