This chapter discusses how Kubrick implicitly undermines the characteristics of classical Hollywood narrative. In Kubrick’s adaptations, music is not only foregrounded, becoming audible, but also helps the progression of the story, often moving and motivating characters’ actions, as in the case of A Clockwork Orange. It is also an indispensable element in the creation and development of the metaphor of dance. The chapter discusses how and why this metaphor is used in 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, and Full Metal Jacket.

Keywords:   filmmakers, film adaptations, filmmaking, Hollywood narrative, music, dance, A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Full Metal Jacket
