KUBRICK / TARKOVSKY

 

Unlike previously, focusing on one filmmaker, I wanted to look at the two most influential and most respected artists in the world of cinema: Stanley Kubrick and Andrei Tarkovsky. Both of them have defined and pioneered the cinematic language, and propelled cinema forward as an art form. This short comparison highlights their own unique cinematic style, in which to some extent, they share the same philosophical and thematic undertones in their filmography.

The films included are:
Stanley Kubrick- Path of Glory (1957)
- Spartacus (1960)
- Lolita (1962)
- Dr. Strangelove (1964)
- 2001: A space odyssey (1968)
- A Clockwork Orange (1971)
- Barry Lyndon (1975)
- The Shining (1980)
- Full Metal Jacket (1987)
- Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

Andrei Tarkovsky -Ivan's Childhood (1962)
- Andrei Rublev (1966)
- Solaris (1972)
- The Mirror (1975)
- Stalker (1979)
- Nostalghia (1983)
- The Sacrifice (1986)
