Person of the week: Stanley Kubrick

On July 26, the cult director would have turned 86years. In honor of this event, we decided to recall several interiors from his most famous works of art Stanley Kubrick was one of the most influential and controversial filmmakers in the world of cinema. Each of his films, from "Spartacus" to "Clockwork Orange," became not only a subject of modern art, but also a philosophical puzzle, which will be solved by more than one generation. Today, the cult director Stanley Kubrick could have turned 86 years old. In honor of this event, we recall the interiors of the three most famous of his works.

1. "Shining" (The Shining), 1980 year. Hotel Interior Overluck

An eerie place, is not it? Huge rooms, endless corridors and a completely crazy layout. The director made sure that the hotel guests did not feel at home. The walls here regularly change thickness, many doors lead to nowhere, the windows are arranged in a chaotic order, the size of the rooms and it is impossible to predict at all. And all this is not a movie, but a purposeful attempt to mislead the viewer: for all your attentiveness and sophistication, you can not foresee what awaits the hero in the next turn. And it does not matter, the turn is a corridor or plot.

2. "Space Odyssey of the Year 2001" (A Space Odyssey), 1968. The interior of the spaceship

Before the creators of the scenery of the spaceship,Oscar winners Anthony Masters, Harry Lange and Ernest Archer had a difficult task, because the ship had to match the description of Arthur C. Clark (the writer and the author of the stories that formed the basis of the film) and at the same time reflect the unique vision of the director. At the time of the release of the film (1968), the interior of the ship produced more than a futuristic impression: it was full of mysterious equipment, it still had a right to exist. And, as time showed, the future (at least, of interior design) is moving in Stanley Kubrick's long-planned direction. Look at the room with red chairs - quite a modern restaurant.

3. "Clockwork Orange", 1971

White interiors of wealthy citizens of the future(According to Stanley Kubrick) fully consistent with today's realities. Straight lines, minimalism, natural wood and chalkboards (for example, a destroyed library), strangely enough, gained their relevance 40 years after the release of the film. Of course, one can talk for a long time about the sagacity of talented people and their hypersensitivity to changes in the shaky matter of time, but more often such intersections of fiction with reality occur thanks to fans of the creativity of this or that person. Most likely, Stanley Kubrick's films were inspired by a huge number of designers and architects, which in general is completely unsurprising.
