Last Film Seen: “Spartacus” (1960)

Intelligent, emotional and inspiring. Kirk Douglas is fantastic.

Everywhere we’ve heard Kubrick had the emotional range of a teaspoon (thank you, Hermione), this proves the opposite. Spartacus is proof that Kubrick could handle emotion. This film almost brought me to tears during some moments, the relationship between Spartacus and Varinia is beautifully acted and presented.

With this I have finally watched all of Stanley Kubrick’s movies. It may not be very representative of his work, but it shows how he was such a naturally talented and versatile filmmaker.

Rating: 9/10

Only art you can control. Art and masturbation. Two areas in which I am an absolute expert.

When you love someone, you’ve gotta trust them. There’s no other way. You’ve gotta give them the key to everything that’s yours; otherwise what’s the point? And for a while, I believed, that’s the kind of love I had……. *BOOM¨*

I can’t stand people who hate on “The Tree of Life”.

"Mehh, it’s just a 3-hour long screensaver." Bitch, the "screensaver" part is not even 30 minutes long and it happens to be an achievement in audiovisual art. Saying it’s style over substance is not acknowledging the profound study on childhood, family and the whole "nature and grace" thing. Not to mention, most people who dislike this didn’t even bother try to understand or pay attention, they blame the movie for their own intelectual laziness and lack of attention span.

Jezz, go watch Avatar or something.
