Stanley Kubrick's Napoleon

Napoleon

Jeff Dawson of the Times’ article ‘Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon: the greatest movie never made?’ is an interesting re-telling of the usual Kubrick/Napoleon stories which ties with in the release of Alison Castle’s book in November. The (expensive) limited edition book looks fantastic and comes with access to an on-line library of 17,000 related Napoleon images. Hopefully Taschen will do a cheaper re-print as they did with the ‘Stanley Kubrick Archives‘.

Connected: Moon, Maths, Jon Hopkins

Moon

  • Moon – Duncan Jone’s homage to classic sci-fi starring Sam Rockwell is out in June. Watching the trailer there’s distinct parallels to Kubrick’s ‘2001‘ and the Clooney version of Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris especially with the overall-look of the film. Also worth checking out is Gavin Rothery’s concept art for the film.

  • Caught Jon Hopkins supporting Plaid at the recent Ether Festival. Got to say that his latest album ‘Insides‘ is my favourite album so far this year. Top notch electronica!

Andrew Lindstrom over at Well Medicated has put together a list of his 50 favourite covers from the Criterion Collection. For anyone interested in film, the Criterion Collection specialise in re-publishing classic film editions that ‘offer the highest technical quality and award-winning, original supplements’ including those from directors such as Stanley Kubrick, Jean Luc-Godard, Ingmar Bergman and Powell and Pressburger.
