    By Prof. Ricardo Torres

    Kubrick spent the next four years making 2001: a space odyssey(1968), a metaphysical science-fiction epic based on a haunting short story by arthur c. clarke, who worked with him on the screenplay. the film is divided into three parts, with only the middle section resembling a traditional narrative. in that section two astronauts on a spaceship bound for jupiter are forced to match wits with hal 9000, the ship’s all-seeing, conscious onboard computer, when it malfunctions. prehistoric apes are the focus of the first section, and the last section contains a sequence of wildly impressionistic images as the spaceship is sucked into a dimension in which time and space are disrupted. beyond its meditation on humanity’s relationship with machines and artificial intelligence, the themes and meaning of 2001: a space odyssey are elusive. kubrick himself said that he hoped that the film’s significance would transcend language and reason. few critics failed to note his stunning use of classical music, most notably richard strauss’s thus spoke zarathustra. kubrick’s powerful application of music to amplify atmosphere, character, and story was a signature of his filmmaking. the film also set a new standard for movie special effects and has been praised for the surprising number of futuristic technologies it depicted that have subsequently—at least in part—come into existence.

    Kubrick’s next film was a clockwork orange (1971), which he adapted himself from the 1963 novel of the same name by anthony burgess, set in england’s not-too-distant future. kubrick’s rendering of this world was visually stunning, and he cast malcolm mcdowell as the violence-addicted teenage hoodlum who is caught and reprogrammed in horrifying fashion by the government. brutal and cynical, this deliberately provocative, nihilistic view of society and its discontented earned an x rating for excessive violence when it was released in the united states.
    played a writer who becomes increasingly deranged and eventually turns upon his wife and young son while acting as the winter caretaker of an isolated hotel. the shining (1980) earned what had come to be the usual mixed critical reception for a kubrick film, with some reviewers arguing that it was among his finest work. ultimately, the film was a commercial success and over time came to be considered one of the great horror films of the 20th century. 100% of all proceeds from tickets sales donated to the library. single show: $150, week pass $500
