Auteurs: Stanley Kubrick
Film #2: Killer's Kiss
It's a surprise to see all of the negative reactions that people have to this film. This is Kubrick's earlier work, so it's less polished, as he is still establishing himself as a director, but I absolutely loved this film. It took an easy idea and went with it, and with Kubrick's style really beginning to shine through, I actually really enjoyed the film. It's gorgeous to look at, the characters are interesting, as a whole, this film really was great to see. This film really does show that Kubrick was one step closer to perfecting his directing style, so it will be very interesting to see how he progresses over his next couple of films.
