more, more, more Stanley Kubrick!

October 13, 2010

Because I haven’t blogged about the man in over a week, here is a delightful post dedicated to the ends of his films.  Kubrick, being the incredible director that he was, really knew how to end a movie.  More often than not, these endings were powerful and memorable cinematic moments that, even to this day, resonate with the viewer long after the credits have rolled.  Check out the clips I’ve posted below…  Note Kubrick’s use of music, it was a common staple of the auteur.  Imagine what these films would be without these soundtracks?  Imagine what the world would be like without these films?!   Imagine a universe with no Stanley Kubrick?!  Ahhhh!!!

Oh yeah… the clips…

Paths of Glory (note: the girl singing would later become Kubrick’s wife.)
