About the Book
Pocket Essentials is a dynamic series of books that are concise, lively, and easy to read. Packed with facts as well as expert opinions, each book has all the key information you need to know about such popular topics as film, television, cult fiction, history, and more. Stanley Kubrick was one of those rare directors who was both commercial and artistic. This is because he was not afraid to embrace traditional genres, and at the same time, stretch the boundaries of film with controversial themes--underage sex in "Lolita; "ultraviolence in "A Clockwork Orange;" and erotica in" Eyes Wide Shut. "As well as having an introductory essay, in this book each of Kubrick's films is reviewed and analyzed, including his last film, the sexually-explicit and controversial "Eyes Wide Shut."
