A “Close Reading” of Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” | West Coast Odysseus Preamble* A few weeks ago and for the first time I watched Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 movie 2001: A Space Odyssey in segments on Youtube. It made such a powerful impression on me that I immediately bought the DVD. I also found the Wikipedia webpage on the movie; I skipped the plot summary, but wanted to read about the reception of the movie, and was pleased to see that it was considered the best movie of all time by one critical journal, and usually places in the “top ten” lists of others.

Many animated movies are in fact targeted at children, but then there are also those which cross into more mature territory, as well as those that cross the bridge and can be greatly enjoyed by both the older and the younger, Studio Ghibli and Pixar have carved out a reputation for these kind of films that can be enjoyed by all ages. This list is for the animated films made for grown-ups. These films go places that many animated films wouldn’t dare go, and as many films on this list prove, animated movies can be equally emotional, equally exciting and equally amazing as live action cinema. 10.

Las películas favoritas de Stanley Kubrick Desde 2012 Nick Wrigley, fundador de la organización los Maestros del Cine, ha trabajado en una lista, compilada de diferentes fuentes, de las películas favoritas de Stanley Kubrick. Todas las listas que hacemos dependen de su finalidad, es decir, el uso (como la lista del mercado o la lista pendientes) o del momento en el que las realizamos (afortunadamente, nuestros gustos cambian), por lo tanto no hay listas definitivas.
