Stanley Kubrick was very quiet. This bewitching documentary gives us the rare opportunity to hear the rare words of a filmmaker as brilliant as he is secretive, through the interviews he gave to film critic Michel Ciment. Inspired by Kubrick’s famous travelling shots, slow camera movements take us on a walk through a labyrinthine museum, with a décor inspired by “2001: A Space Odyssey”.
Twenty years after his death, everything seems to have been said about Kubrick. Distrustful of journalists, preferring to communicate through images rather than words, the American (and by adoption British) filmmaker has, on the other hand, expressed himself little publicly, which has contributed to thickening the mystery surrounding him. Author of a reference book on the director (“Kubrick”, reissued by Calmann-Lévy in 2011), film critic Michel Ciment, also director of the magazine “Positif” and columnist for “Masque et la plume”, is one of the rare journalists to have interviewed him on several occasions, establishing a long-lasting dialogue that has spanned almost three decades.
