Touching "love song" for the genius
3 March 2005 | by 2001catSee all my reviews

Not bad! Really not bad! Very funny and interesting doc. Different and original from the other stuff about Kubrick. You can see that the three guys are honest, moneyless and smart. A sort of narrative backstage of their adventure trying to get in touch with Stanley. The final scene with Christiane is really touching! It's a sort of love song for the Genius of all time... When will it be DVD distributed in Italy? And in the United States? I'm looking forward to it! There are many scenes, however, that I loved so much... The interview with Murray Melvin is great, and the one with Phlip Stone is sad and funny at the same time. Finally I could see Leon Vitali after all these years!

You can't miss it!
