Narrative and Stylistic Patterns in the Films of Stanley Kubrick

Narrative and Stylistic Patterns in the Films of Stanley Kubrick $34.95

Luis M. Garcia Mainar

Published by Boydell & Brewer

García Mainar's critical study of the films of the late Stanley Kubrick includes analysis of all but his last work, Eyes Wide Shut, and offers both a formal analysis of the films based on style and narrative pattern, and a theoretical, postmodernist approach to ideas presented in the films

García Mainar is particularly concerned with analyzing the relevance of spectacle in Kubrick's films, seeing it as a disruptive mechanism that can call into question the value and necessity of communication

He identifies different kinds of spectacle in the films, and proceeds to a detailed examination of these different forms in 2001 A Space Odyssey, Barry Lyndon, and Full Metal Jacket. Luis M. García Mainar teaches English at the University of Zaragoza, Spain
