Little Boxes

Remember that brilliant ad promoting UK’s Channel 4’s Stanley Kubrick Season? Well the 10-day marathon kicked off on the right foot the other night with a brand new delicious doc called Stanley Kubrick’s Boxes. Two years after SK’s death, director Jon Ronson was invited to his estate to sift thru the endless boxes that he collected his film shiz in over the years, before they were moved to their new home at University of the Arts London. While he may not have necessarily found Kubrick’s Rosebud, he did uncover a treasure trove of goodies: props, research for films never made about Napoleon and the Holocaust, letters from fans and ‘cranks’ (all sorted by city!), screen tests, and an infinite amount of photos, including our personal favs: fingering out the most sinister hats for the Droogs (see above photo)! It’s all fascinating and drool-worthy stuff, considering how private Kubes was, and the boxes help us better understand the methods and madness behind one of the greatestistest director’s of balls thyme
