With the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's expansive "Stanley Kubrick" exhibition set to close on June 30, the museum's film department is revisiting several key movies in the maverick filmmaker's oeuvre.
Each of the director's films in the series "Kubrick and Co." will be paired with an important work by another filmmaker, including Michaelangelo Antonioni ("Red Desert"), Ingmar Bergman ("Hour of the Wolf"), Sam Fuller ("China Gate") and Max Ophuls ("Lola Montes").
The series opens May 31 with Kubrick's 1957 anti-war film, "Paths of Glory," starring Kirk Douglas, followed by Joseph Losey's 1957 drama "Time Without Pity," revolving around a man's (Michael Redgrave) determined pursuit of justice.
Screening June 1 is George Axelrod's offbeat 1966 comedy "Lord Love a Duck," with Tuesday Weld (Kubrick's original choice for "Lolita") and Roddy McDowell, and Kubrick's controversial 1962 adaptation of "Lolita" with Sue Lyon, James Mason and Peter Sellers.
Among the other Kubrick films in the festival are "Dr. Strangelove," "2001: A Space Odyssey," "A Clockwork Orange," "The Shining," "Barry Lyndon" and "Eyes Wide Shut."
