Stanley Kubrick

Stanley Kubrick

“If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed.”

Though Scorsese holds the title of my favorite director thus far, I have to give the title of best director to Mr. Stanley Kubrick. He exhibits such a strong sense of control over almost all of his pictures (probably only excluding Spartacus), that I just have to hand it to him. Though he tackles a wide variety of topics and makes a lot points, his directorial presence can almost always be felt. Oh, and I’m a sucker for those tracking shots. 🙂
