    Notorious for doing 50+ takes... think about it... a great director knows exactly what they want from their actors and they know how to get it quickly. Kubrick is a hack in every sense of the word. He had know idea what he was doing. He wasnt a genius. He wasnt a virtuoso. He was shit.

      It's about discovery as well. Kubrick knew that after getting worn down by 100 takes of the same shit, actors are going to start going
      >IDFK!
      And start doing weird shit and adding flourishes/throwing shit at the wall just to keep themselves creatively active. That's where you get gold
      That's where you get shit like this

        I understand completely but a good painter uses many strokes while master uses very few strokes that look like many. A genius director would be able to get their actor to those remarkable places immediately. I say all this in slight jest. I love his films but it needs to be pointed out.

            This. No other director was able to make those movies. So arguably the only way to do it is to get a genius to run 100 takes

              Yeah I don't get what point that anon was trying to make. Unless he is able to name those genuis directors all he did is make a distinction without a difference.
              >uhhh actually he is not a genius because a genius would be able to do x
              What does that change exactly? He is still at the top so whether he is called a genius or not is irrelevant.

            Cohen brothers
            Woody Allen
            Ridley Scott
            William Friedkin
            Clint Eastwood

            ... but this is beside the point

            I'm more interested in future generations learning better ways of doing things. Of course, only Kubrick could make The Shining... but thats not the point. I dont want young morons thinking the only to get a great take is doing it 100 times. I think this has to do with a giant misunderstanding of the role of the director. They are given all the pieces to execute a vision. Much like a line cook. If the writer is the chef creating the recipe then the line cook is making the food. Many takes is sloppy. A director directs the actor and should be able to cut through the bullshit to get what they want. If a line cook made a burger 100 times over before serving a patron then they would be fired. All the ingredients are there. Make the food or get out of the kitchen.

            Are Kubrick films great? Yes. But is he a great director? No. Both can be true, lads.

                Its used to demonstrate that people who don't know what they are doing in other fields are usually removed. But in filmmaking directors a lauded for this behavior. Its misguided and should be corrected. But the handful contributors to this thread clearly express a social cross section that the act of trying to unravel this cultural mythos is near to impossible.

          That depends entirely on the painter.

        this is a huge waste of time, and simply an excuse for kubrick to be a control freak and exert power over people.

        Kubrick was antagonistic to the human condition. By breaking down a person he was a drill sgt or dictator who can manipulate base instincts at his will. No actor can be a coauthor with him. Only his own humanity matters. Type As are more easily accepted as auteurs, when auteurs can come in many different types of collab style.

        He basically has the same infatuation with mindless entertainment and dumb special effects as Michael Bay, but he adds convoluted plots to make it seem like there’s more going on.
