Stanley Kubrick's Personal Letters
Posted 15 July 2008 - 03:44 PM
The Telegraph has now published some selected extracts in print and online starting with Stanley Kubrick's studio work (not his preceding "independent" years of working).
You can find a hyperlink here that leads you to this.
There is also a context piece and various interviews, including with Christiane as head of the estate available here.
I hope this is of interest for some. Maybe a few here will recognise the situational resemblance between their problems on a job or in private and to those Stanley Kubrick had.

I am completely missing out on what is shown in the Channel4/Film4/More4 season on SK.
I reverted to Basic 5 UK channels to keep my "low debt structure" (cf other thread), just at the time The Four announced they would fill the tube with Kubrick stuff.
Quite undoubtedly very unfortunate timing from my side.

Those close to the Kubrick estate might have followed the project of bringing some of Stanley's private correspondence and letters into the public realm in order to demystify his persona as well as put his character right for the public.
Thanks for sharing this, I found the letters quite interesting. Always been a huge Kubrick fan.

Just watched a doco called "Stanley Kubricks Boxes " on More 4 . Very interesting He had thousands of boxes of full of just about everthing he did and things he wanted to do . They have now been donated to a Media Dept at a London Uni .
It was a very interesting program. His attention to detail was obsessive. A funny part of the documentary is when they talked about his love of stationary, and his massive collection of it, and when they showed Kubrick's local Ryman stationary shop. It's fascinating to think that Kubrick would walk down there and peruse the pens and pay only with cash, as opposed signatures and credit cards, to avoid embarrassing conversations with people about his films. I dont suppose you caught the short film he made afterwards? Again very interesting, you could see from certain shots and the overall feel that it was Kubrick's work.
