what are the film making techniquesof stanley kubrick


Blogger | Posted on

My general interpretation of the things that make a Kubrick film a Kubrick film are:


Forbidden topic displayed evidently. Precision Orange, Lolita, Full Metal Jacket, Dr. Strangelove, Eyes Wide Shut, Paths of Glory. All motion pictures that take on forbidden topic in a blunt and even in-your-face way.

Ethically flawed heroes. Similar motion pictures I simply recorded previously.

Characters as cartoons. In a few of his movies, a considerable lot of the characters' characteristics are very misrepresented. Models: Dr. Strangelove (General Turgidson, President Merkin Muffley, the concealed Russian Premier, Colonel Kong [Slim Pickens], and particularly Sterling Hayden's General Jack Ripper), Clockwork Orange (Alex himself, Dim, Deltoid); The Shining (Jack, Lloyd); Lolita (Humbert, Clare Quilty, Lolita).

Ladies depicted as items. Ladies are intensely externalized in a significant number of Kubrick's movies. This is appalling, yet obvious. Precedents? Some of them (A Clockwork Orange, Lolita, and Eyes Wide Shut) are increasingly self-evident, yet some less so. For instance: in Dr. Strangelove the main lady who really shows up in the film is General "Buck" Turgidson's secretary Miss Scott (depicted by Tracy Reed), with whom he's engaging in extramarital relations. Her whole scene is finished with her wearing spotted underwear while preparation Turgidson on a military issue.

Long following shots. Popular following shots incorporate those inside the lodging in The Shining after Danny on his bicycle as he rides through the corridors, a long following take traveling through the channels in Paths of Glory, and different following shots in Clockwork Orange, 2001, and Barry Lyndon.

Strange utilization of zoom. The moderate zoom-out containing the main shot of A Clockwork Orange might be a standout amongst the most celebrated zoom shots ever of. Kubrick additionally utilizes sensational zooming in a considerable lot of his different movies. Normally it's uncommonly quick or surprisingly moderate.

Wide-point focal points. Kubrick utilizes extraordinary wide-point focal points in practically the majority of his movies. You can see the twisting at the limits of the picture in following shots that utilization a wide-edge, particularly when the camera turns during a following shot. He likewise utilizes the wide point focal point up near entertainers' countenances in certain circumstances to give a feeling of earnestness or tenderness.

Incredibly long takes. A large portion of Kubrick's movies have shots enduring three or four minutes, or maybe more. One case of a strangely long take is the scene in Clockwork Orange wherein Alex is registered with the Ludovico building. We see the whole registration, from start to finish - something that numerous producers would essentially skirt.
