  1. Watching The Directors 26: Stanley Kubrick

    The first episode of season 2 is a marathon look at Stanley Kubrick, the revered mind behind Spartacus, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey and a few films that will make your skin crawl while you waltz. Joe and Melissa are joined by Duke, who was last heard on the Tarantino episode and now co-hosts the podcast Degree of Separation. Together, they attempt to discuss the essence of Kubrick, the work and mastery of one of cinema’s most respected and enigmatic directors. Along the way, mail and 10 Quizes piled up and the show tries to answer that most asked of questions: "Does anyone like Eyes Wide Shut?"

  2. Weird Studies Episode 75: Our Old Friend the Monolith: On Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’

    JF and Phil discuss a film they’ve been bringing up since the beginning of the podcast: Kubrick’s masterful 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).

    "You don’t find reality only in your own backyard, you know," Stanley Kubrick once told an interviewer. "In fact, sometimes that’s the last place you’ll find it." Oddly, this episode of Weird Studies begins with Phil Ford hatching the idea of putting a replica of the monolith from 2001 in his backyard. As the ensuing discussion suggests, this would amount to putting reality — or the Real, as we like to call it — in the place where it may be least apparent. Perhaps that is what Kubrick did when he planted his monolithic film in thousands of movie theatres back in 1968. Moviegoers went in expecting a Kubrickian twist on Buck Rogers; they came out changed by the experience, much like the hominids of great veld in the "Dawn of Man" sequence that opens the film. This is what all great art does, and if you look closely, maybe 2001 can tell you something about how it does it. Because in the end, the film is the monolith, and the monolith is all art.
