Title

Kubrick's 'A'-Camera

Subject

A camera used by Stanely Kubrick

Description

A photo of a camera used by Kubrick, most likely from the 1975 movie Barry Lyndon. Kubrick is responsible for many iconic movies which have found their way into pop culture today. The most prevalent of all being The Shining, a horror movie starring Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall. Troubled writer(Nicholson) takes his family into seclusion as winter caretakers in a lodge in Colorado. Things quickly take a turn for the worst when the hotel turns out to be haunted, and Nicholson's character turns homicidal against his family. Another staple from Kubrick is Full Metal Jacket, a gritty Vietnam war film that depicts the dangers of losing yourself in the chaos and violence of the world. Kubrick's work is widely praised by the critic and layman alike, and will likely remain a household name for years to come.
