Stanley Kubrick’s Film Career on Display in San Francisco
Stanley Kubrick had exacting standards as a film director—and it shows in his output on the silver screen. Whether you’re watching Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, or A Clockwork Orange, it’s as much about the camera angles and set designs as it is about the expressions on actors’ faces and the way they deliver their lines. Each film is like a giant jigsaw puzzle—each piece neatly fitting into place, each used to build the finished product.
Many of these pieces (and more) make up Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition, a traveling museum exhibit that has landed at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco. The exhibit covers the length of Kubrick’s career, from his beginnings as a magazine photographer in the 1940s to his early directing days in the ’50s and ’60s, all the way up to his swan song, Eyes Wide Shut.
