Stanley Kubrick and the Dark Side of the Moon

February 3, 2007

This is amazingly well done…

It would have been even better if they hadn’t decided to take things over the top in the aftermath scenes, but even so it’s still a whole lot of fun.

I dug around a bit but couldn’t find any backstory or “making of” information online (at least not in English) — I’m really curious as to whether all of the footage with Rumsfeld, Kissinger, Haig, etc., was purpose-filmed, or taken from a different interview and repurposed into this film.

I thought the use of the fictitious campaign song from “Wag the Dog” was a particularly nice touch…

    I highly recommend watching the recently relaesed film from http://sacredmysteries.com/ called “Kubrick’s Odyssey: Secrets hidden in the films of Stanley Kubrick”. These theories are well adressed, and the methods are illuminated as well. If you have wondered about the deep connection of Stanley Kubrick and the moon landings, this film is a must see! The details concerning “The Shining” are mind blowing….
