Love and Death in Kubrick

by Patrick Webster

Love and Death in Kubrick Synopsis

The films of Stanley Kubrick have left an indelible mark on the history of American cinema. This text explores the auteur's legacy, specifically positioning his body of work within the context of cultural theory. A single chapter is devoted to each of Kubrick's seven films: Lolita, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, and Eyes Wide Shut. Particular attention is paid to the role of love and death in Kubrick's films, emphasizing his innovative exploration of love and sex, and the portrayal of mortality via masculine violence.
