Movie of the Week – The Killing
The Killing | Stanley Kubrick | 1956
Every time I think of Stanley Kubrick, I think about a harsh perfectionist. A filmmaker so rigid, that to me, all the air comes out of his films. (Not necessarily in a good or bad way, but a tough way.)
I never think of Stanley Kubrick the young filmmaker finding his way and growing with each film. Watch Killer’s Kiss and The Killing back to back and watch the growth.
