Stanley Kubrick cinemagraphs trip me out (27 gifs)

*Development of A.I. originally began with director Stanley Kubrick in the early 1970s. Kubrick hired a series of writers up until the mid-1990s, including Brian Aldiss, Bob Shaw, Ian Watson and Sara Maitland. The film languished in development hell for years, partly because Kubrick felt computer-generated imagery was not advanced enough to create the David character, whom he believed no child actor would believably portray. In 1995, Kubrick handed A.I. to Steven Spielberg, but the film did not gain momentum until Kubrick’s death in 1999. Spielberg remained close to Watson’s film treatment for the screenplay. A.I. was greeted with mostly positive reviews from critics and became a financial success. This film was dedicated to Kubrick’s memory after the end credits, saying “For Stanley Kubrick”. [source]

    #28. That's too bad. AI sucked.

    • Dan

      One of the most depressing movies ever made.

    • Frédéric Purenne

      You're right, I wish Kubrick was the one that did it!

      • Dan

        Kubrick was heavily involved in this movie. He greenlightes Spielberg as director.

        • Guse

          Who wouldn't? If you told me to choose any director in the world to direct a screenplay I wrote, Spielberg would be tops on my list. That doesn't mean even the masters don't make a stinker on occasion.

          The problem with AI was that it was two totally different movies (robot son vs. escape movie) followed by an ending that came out of left-freakin-field.

            You can't watch a Kubrick movie expecting something specific. He will disappoint you if you do. Kubrick didn't care what people thought. Ever see the 2001 series? Time drags on, but those movies are still compelling. He never let the film restrict his story telling method.

            AI was ultimately a futuristic fairy tale, like Pinocchio.

          • Jay

            The Kubrick ending was the kid stuck under the ice pleading with the blue fairy. The Spielberg warm-fuzzy ending was seeing his 'mother' again.

            It should've ended under the ice. That's the way Kubrick would've ended it.

              Actually, this is a myth and not true. Kubrick's treatment had all of that stuff in it.

    #9 her scenes were the best in that film

    • Fasteddy14

      If you read the Tom Cruise unauthorized biography, there is some really compelling story behind her footage with the young sailor (I think sailor)… Basically Kubrick filmed hours and hours of extremely graphic footage, and expected intense method acting on her part.

      • dOOb

        SOO hot.. before getting all that creepy plastic surgery done. Now she just looks…. scary

      • blues
