Presented in association with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the LACMA exhibition "Stanley Kubrick"
Hosted by Malcolm McDowell with special guests Matthew Modine, Paul Mazursky and Ryan O'Neal
The Academy joined with LACMA to celebrate the life and career of Stanley Kubrick with a dynamic evening of film clips and personal remembrances by his friends and collaborators. The 13-time Academy Award-nominated director, writer and producer (who also won an Oscar for Special Visual Effects for "2001: A Space Odyssey") was one of the world’s most visually innovative, thematically operatic and intellectually challenging filmmakers.
Movies such as "Lolita," "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb," "A Clockwork Orange," "Barry Lyndon," "The Shining," "Full Metal Jacket" and "Eyes Wide Shut" have consistently defied audiences’ expectations and expanded the boundaries of visual storytelling with wit, style, humor and intelligence. Notable individuals from the U.K. and U.S. film communities came together to honor Kubrick over the course of this stellar evening.
The evening also launched both LACMA’s Kubrick film retrospective "2012: A Kubrick Odyssey" and the Academy’s satellite exhibition "Stanley Kubrick: The Ultimate Trip" in the Academy’s Grand Lobby Gallery, where it will be on view through March 3, 2013. Viewing hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., weekends noon to 6 p.m.
LACMA's complete, chronological film retrospective at LACMA's Bing theater will include "Fear and Desire" and "Killer's Kiss" on Nov. 9, "The Killing" and "Paths of Glory" on Nov. 10, "Spartacus" on Nov. 16, "Lolita" on Nov. 17, "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" on Nov. 30, "2001: A Space Odyssey" on Dec. 1, "A Clockwork Orange" on Dec. 7, "Barry Lyndon" on Dec. 8, "The Shining" on Dec. 14, and "Full Metal Jacket" and "Eyes Wide Shut" on Dec. 15.
