LACMA Post - Kubrick

I rushed through the Kubrick show. It was easily the most crowded, and most crowded with objects, video, and text. By this time I was getting museum fatigue and didn't have much stamina left to linger on this exhibit.

I did enjoy this description of how he worked on Lolita (tied with Strangelove for my favorite Kubrick movie).
He encouraged his actors to improvise, using the dissimilarities in their performances as part of a precarious dreamscape.
It's especially thought-provoking for me considering a creative project Fell Swoop is working on.
