          This and the humour

          I've never been a fan. There is not a single Kubrick film I think is very good. The Shining is probably the best.
          He is incredibly overrated.

        His use of color in the film is the best in his career in my opinion. It's not my favorite film of his and I disliked it on release - but I've since had a reckoning with it and I love it. It's cloned the ranks of his films for me.

            Or he was just shooting a really good looking fricking film. They used to look like this. They used to have sets and proper lighting. Even a film like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles shits all over most current films aesthetics wise.

                I disagree. The choice of where to put the camera - the lighting - the architecture, it's beautiful in my opinion. This is my favorite shot in the entire film anyway. I get the same feeling when I see the scene of Deckard reading his paper in front of the neon on a rainy street.

                EWS primarily succeeded because Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman are very beautiful, and their real-life marriage was implicated in the public consciousness when this movie was released.

      hard agree, it's so warm from the xmas vibe, which has a certain nostalgic and almost insular kind of warmth. yet we still feel the cold of the winter and of the characters and their activities, that the juxtaposition of all these things gives it some kind of twilight feeling. even at a glance of your picrel it feels off, and i don't like the framing but when i think about it more the piano represents nick and the tree and symbol represent bill. the polarity of their suit colors and demeanors. what does it all mean. . . fake moon landing?

        It's a dream. Read the book. It's basically Cruise thinking/dreaming about sex to get back at Kidmann for hurting his feefees.

    Dumb, boring and tired take.
    First, cold and "inhuman" does nor automatically equals bad.
    Second, this opinion misses the ending of "Paths of Glory"., one of the most moving moments in film history, to the point of being almost too much.

    Kubrick's films are actually filled with feeling. He doesn't draw conclusions for you, though, or tell you what to think about what's happening in his films, so some people mistake that for coldness. He doesn't have Tom Cruise give a big speech at the end articulating what the character thinks about everything that's happened.
