Kubrick's Men's Pictures

Monday, April 7, 2014, 5:30 p.m.
Pembroke Hall 305

Richard Rambuss
Professor of English, Brown University

Filmmaker Stanley Kubrick’s oeuvre amounts to a sustained meditation on men and the male condition, not only in the present, but also in history and in the future.  The through-line for Kubrick’s body of work is not simply violence and sex, but a pressurized exertion of masculinity in unusual, often extreme circumstances, where it may be mightily taxed or exaggerated to various effects, tragic or comic—or distorted, undone, mechanically reconfigured, metamorphosed.  This lecture focuses on the early Kubrick, including his work as a cub photographer for Look magazine from 1945 -1950, his short-form documentaries, and his early noir boxing feature film Killer’s KissDownload the poster for this lecture.
