Stanley Kubrick, l'invention technique au service de l'art du cinéma. Conférence de Joe Dunton

L'intemporelle qualité visuelle des films de Stanley Kubrick est une des raisons pour lesquelles le public du monde entier continue d'être si fasciné par cette œuvre singulière. Le style cinématographique de Kubrick sert strictement la narration en donnant forme à des atmosphères et en intégrant à la perfection décors, jeu d'acteurs et mouvement. Kubrick reste imperméable aux modes visuelles, tout comme aux engouements de l'industrie du cinéma.
