The Underrated Stanley Kubrick
An exacting visionary, Stanley Kubrick meticulously planned each frame to capture strikingly detailed worlds capable of utterly transporting the viewer. Suggesting psychological depths beneath the surface image, Kubrick films live on the screen in a way that even the clearest HDTV cannot hope to replicate. For all the accolades, however, a surprisingly high number of Kubrick's works remain curiously unseen, overshadowed by the praise heaped upon his critically incontestable masterpieces. Curating five of these lesser-seen works, the Underrated Stanley Kubrick offers a searing indictment on the sacrifices of war (Paths of Glory, 1957), a feverishly down-and-dirty noir thriller (Killer's Kiss, 1955), Kubrick's long-lost feature debut (Fear and Desire, 1953), a lavish period piece depicting the rise and fall of a scoundrel (Barry Lyndon, 1975), and a darkly comic study of lust and obsession (Lolita, 1962). $8. Fridays through Sundays, check take-up.org for showtimes. (Fear and Desire)
