kubrick advert on more4

Starting on July 15th and running through the 25th, Britain’s More4 channel is going to be celebrating the films of the great Stanley Kubrick.  Along with Francis Ford Coppola, Kubrick was the first director I fell in love with as an eleven-year old boy, sort of the first person who I understood to actually be a filmmaker and what it meant to be.

Here’s the wonderful ad promoting the film series, an hommage to The Shining, and also to Kubrick’s daughter Vivian’s short documentary Making The Shining.  Good thing Channel 4 didn’t try to reenact Kubrick berating actress Shelly Duvall.
