“Stanley Kubrick”

Los Angeles County

Museum of Art


Through June 30

Are Kubrick’s films cold, calculated, and controlling? Brilliant, ambitious, and groundbreaking? Or all of the above? This extensive retrospective offers support for each of those views. It begins with Kubrick’s career as a photojournalist at Look magazine, then surveys his filmography: 16 films, starting in 1951, with two documentary short subjects, and ending in 1999, the year he died, with “Eyes Wide Shut.” On display are annotated scripts, production stills, lenses and cameras, set models, costumes, and props. The exhibition also looks at Kubrick projects that never got made, including his biopic about Napoloeon Bonaparte, which at one time was to have starred Jack Nicholson. 5905 Wilshire Blvd., 323-857-6000,
