The late, great Stanley Kubrick is honored at La Cinémathèque Française in a huge 1000-square-meter exhibition which features the ultimate in Kubrick fetishist memorabilia. From Korova Milk Bar naked lady furniture to the ape costume from 2001: A Space Odyssey, there is just too much to list here. We were lucky to catch this show this Sunday, amongst a bevy of Kubrick fans spanning 3 or 4 generations. The website of La Cinémathèque has announced that since opening on March 23rd, the exhibition has already received more than 30,000 visitors.
A rarely-seen ensemble of Kubrick collectibles, the exhibition was originally shown at the Deutsche Film Museum in Frankfurt in 2004. When seeing his body of work assembled in one space, it’s easy to see why just the mention of Kubrick’s name conjures up a universe of imagery and emotion. Making use of multimedia installations paired with props, scripts and peripheral material (e.g. letters to and from Nabokov about Lolita, the exhibition traces his works in chronological order, even featuring extensive installations on his never-completed projects Napoleon and The Aryan Papers.
