    DescriptionThis is the first book to explore Stanley Kubrick's archives and the most comprehensive study of the filmmaker to date. In 1968, when Stanley Kubrick was asked to comment on the metaphysical significance of "2001: A Space Odyssey", he replied: 'It's not a message I ever intended to convey in words. 2001 is a nonverbal experience...I tried to create a visual experience, one that bypasses verbalized pigeonholing and directly penetrates the subconscious with an emotional and philosophic content'. The philosophy behind Part 1 of "The Stanley Kubrick Archives" borrows from this line of thinking: from the opening sequence of "Killer's Kiss" to the final frames of "Eyes Wide Shut", Kubrick's complete films are presented chronologically and wordlessly via frame enlargements. This is a completely nonverbal experience. The second part of the book brings to life the creative process of Kubrick's filmmaking by presenting a remarkable collection of mostly unseen material from his archives, including photographs, props, posters, artwork, set designs, sketches, correspondence, documents, screenplays, drafts, notes, and shooting schedules. Accompanying the visual material are essays by noted Kubrick scholars, articles written by and about Kubrick, and a selection of Kubrick's best interviews.
