A master of modern cinema, Stanley Kubrick’s influence in the industry is felt far and wide. His mixtures of frankness and mystery in The Shining and of humor and drama in Full Metal Jacket are just two examples of his legacy commonplace in contemporary film. That legacy is preserved and assembled into one spellbinding package thanks to Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition. Pore over notes and letters from deep into Kubrick’s workplace and estate. Check out original costumes and props from his movies—the invaluable matching blue dresses from the sisters in The Shining, or Joker’s “Born To Kill” helmet from Full Metal Jacket. You’ll also see some of Kubrick’s personal directorial and production tools, as well as original screenplays, both completed and incomplete (from his projects Napoleon and The Aryan Papers).
In addition to the physical elements of the exhibition, Kubrick’s works will be shown retrospectively. This includes twelve feature-length films, starting with Killer’s Kiss and The Killing, continuing through Spartacus, Dr. Strangelove, a digital presentation of Barry Lyndon, Full Metal Jacket, and Eyes Wide Shut, along with five others. Kubrick’s early documentaries and shorts will also be screened. Room 237 and A.I.: Artificial Intelligence, works that grew directly from Kubrick’s ideas, will also hit the screen. Special guests from Kubrick’s inner circle of friends, collaborators, scholars, coworkers, and family will share their experiences and ideas before and after each film. It’s a truly unique way to grasp the full scope and process behind each film. The TIFF Bell Lightbox hosts the exhibition from Halloween, October 31st, to January 25th. Tickets are available online at TIFF.net.
