The scene in A Clockwork Orange when Mr. Alexander realizes that Alex is the man who raped his wife really affected me. Couldn't get it out of my head for days!
I don't think it's one of his better films, but it's definitely a good example of Kubrick's filmmaking. It may not be the best example to make you enjoy his films, but I thought it was interesting enough, in a different manner to anything else I've seen.
I joined this society a few days ago, but didn't comment. But now I see heretics, so
Although, to be fair, as time passes, my love wanes slowly.
Also, tradition dictates this next part.
Favourite Ten Movies:
1. American Beauty (Sam Mendes) - though as with Kubrick, I feel it weakening with every viewing. Though it will always hold a somewhat sentimental value for me)
2. Stalker (Andrei Tarkovsky) - Two hours and a half of cinematographic masturbation.
3. Dogville (Lars Von Trier) - The more I think about it, the more lists such as this it makes. One of the best scripts to grace film-making.
4. Persona (Ingmar Bergman) - A stunning classic. Innovative at the time. Also, a heretic is here too. It's the only Bergman movie that I truly enjoy. Yes, that includes Seventh Seal
5. Seul Contre Tous (Gaspar Noe) - I seriously have to see Enter the Void. Have to.
6. Joint Security Area (Park-Chan Wook) - The Park film that is not a Park film. I love his other films too, but JSA is amazing.
7. El Espinazo del Diablo (Guillermo del Toro) - This film is poetry. Not much else to add.
8. Vertigo (Alfred Hitchcock) - Mostly for inventing one of my favourite film shots, appropriately named, the Vertigo shot. Also, unlike some other Hitchcock films *cough*Psycho*cough*, this is not in your face and does not think the viewer is stupid.
9. Lolita (Stanley Kubrick) - And you think I forgot this guy? Hah, no. And yes, I like one of his "worse films"
10. Pulp Fiction (Quentin Tarantino) - I dare you, I double dare you to not like this list. I mean, it's ok. I love them though.
PS: Shining is still terrible. I won't try and redeem that one. A Clockwork Orange is amazing, though.
